HI, Russ,

Thanks--hope you find it useful. FWIW, the core is a pair of LaCie
Ethernet disks that are 1/2 TB each with two FireWire Maxtor One
Touch drives on top of each. The auto backup software is ViceVersa
Pro - I do little to tweak it on a regular basis. Took a little while
to get it working just the way I wanted.

I am familiar with the Voyager gold LPs.

By the way, are you the Russ Hamm who used to work with Steve Temmer in NYC?
