Tim. Are you and other El Reg Journos
using tablets to write articles?
I say this because of the tagline: "4TB of home storage is great, until you weak up to a dead device"*.
I have noticed a few errors this week, and this is the second tagline error. I respect the fact that there is an error correction link, and I normally use it. But I feel that El Reg is becoming a bit lax toward simple spelling mistakes, formatting errors, incorrect words.
In some cases, I can understand the odd mistake, especially with auto-correct. But this is becoming the norm.
Or am I just being too picky, in this day an age? I mean my posts leave a lot to be desired with regards to grammar and spelling mistakes. However, I personally hold El Reg in some regard. This hurts that standing and I am a little disappointed.
That aside fully agree with your article and anything purported to be used for backup should have a decent, ahem, backup for failures.
*Or this is a pun, and it is above my head. In which case, this post looks rather silly.
