I'd also like to see a driver rating floating above each car on a heads up display through my windscreen. One star?! Stay the hell away from that guy!
Pretty simple solution is to get a NAS like the Synology box (http://www.synology.com) and then set up some sort of offsite backup as well. Just remember that pictures are really not a replaceable sort of thing. If I lost pictures of my kids or of places I've been there is no way I could ever re-create them. If I lose my resume, or my tax forms, or even my music collection, who cares? Pictures of my kids standing for the first time? I'll pay some extra money to have multiple copies in multiple locations. This is not the place to skimp.
Buy whatever the hell you want and just break the camera with an awl or open it up and remove it completely. Easy peasy.
This really is *NOT* a good example... estimates from 2008 put the world population at 6,706,993,152
If almost 7 million people in the world are going on a shooting spree then I'm getting that cabin in the woods I've always wanted. Next time go for like 5 or 6 nines.
