Thanks Herb.
This may actually be a good time to ask a question I'm wondering about: What sort of backup systems do you all use?

I'm leaving a production company to return to the freelance world. My plan is to do
- SSD for system, of course
- a 4TB (to start) internal RAID 0 for Media,
- a 2TB internal RAID 0 for cache/exports
- An ESATA drive (haven't decided which yet) for nightly backups (thoughts on software?)
- and USB 3 or ESATA for archiving.

The company I'm leaving uses ESATA sleds with WD Greens for archiving, and I'm considering going that way (it's cheap, fast, and I don't end up with a 100 different types of drives lying around).

Apologies for extending the OTness...
