Sorry Jeff. You often provide great insight on many topics, but Dremel tools and Leathermans are not for DIY. They are the PowerPC of the tool world and rank right up there with crescent wrenches. If you're serious about a job, use the tool made for it. Don't use a single-cheek, "I just want to be your everything", POS.

I understand that once they approach the 1TB threshhold, the Bank of America pricinple will apply and the will become TOO BIG TO FAIL.
You also should never underestimate the invaluable aspect of writing as a problem solver. Consider how many times any of us have been stuck trying to resolve a sticky technical issue. The process of writing itself can liberate you from your situation. By carefully channeling the conditions of your issue in a linear and comprehensive text, your situation is translated from spatial & abstract to linear & concrete, which often can lead to a resolution. Just think of how many times you've gone to explain a problem to a coworker and as you explain it, the riddle is solved.
