Tower of Tera

Lots of talk today about the 1 terabyte drive from Hitachi. In fact the drive is more likely to be about 931GB based on the dubious practice of using decimal 1000's rather than binary (whilst we're on that subject, the concept of decimal versus binary does annoy me - what with that and overhead, on some of the AMS's I've installed, a 300GB drive comes out as 267GB).

So, yes, I want a 1TB drive - no idea what I want to put on it, or how I'll back it up - but I want one.
