Funny: A Cautionary Tale About Storage and Backup

Storage: everyone wants it, but nobody wants to pay for it. This is one of those funny cartoons showing the doom of that sort of thinking...pay me now or cry over lost data later.

Loved: Where is my data? I’m kinda big deal after all! I should have listened to my postdoc, he can build cheaper storage than you can. I should have went to Newegg.

Found via Joe Landman and James Cuff. Joe talks about how RAID isn't backup and has some more wit and wisdom.
