    Some depends on your threat model. If you're just worrying about a
    computer/disk failure, adding TWO backup servers with large disks
    (old PC with BIOS mod or an O/S that doesn't care, to use large disk)
    is likely a cheap alternative. On the other hand, protecting against
    earthquake, fire, flood or theft means storing the backups off site.

    Nice to know the indication of a bad disk - thanks!

    Might be nice to talk to a lawyer about a 'Class Action' type of lawsuit
    if these are allowed under Canadian law.

    How much was the levy? Is it worth buying over the border and paying
    the import duties?

    I'm sure that was a screw-up in the wording of the original law.
    Gotta love it though. "Well Done, Canada"!
