> So true.  Unfortunately, spending money also feeds into the WAF.  I have a
spare 1.5 TB drive, and 2x750 in the current system.  Over christmas, I will
probably back up everything onto the 1.5 TB, and try a fresh Karmic install,

seduced into running the newest and greatest front end stuff, but it is so
shiny and pretty.
