    Just a Mississippi boy that stumbled upon your site after stumbling upon Seawitch’s site.

    Long acquinted with the benefits of the different RAID levels, but it never even occured to me that folks would want it in a desktop/workstation situation. Do regular backups, and spend your money where it makes a difference – quality mainboards, RAM, and processors.
