It may be OT, but we're on a Mac list here. Harddrives seem to have more
and more unreliable. I had a HDD failure after half a year with my new
MacBook last summer, and the same happend to a friend of mine just a few
months ago. So one should not feel all too safe and comfortable with
harddrives these days...

I backup my data to two USB sticks daily and burn CDs/DVDs of the
important data every weekend...
