Even HP's web site is silent on the event!"

Very little problem with receiving someone else's mail, so I voted 1-10. Closer to the 1 end of the scale.
But, a bigger problem is items mailed to me that never arrived.
Historically, that number has been zero. But in the last month, I have had three separate items that were sent but never showed up. Mailed about a week apart, from three different senders. Percentage-wise, three missing items is plenty, as my (junk-mail-adjusted) received mail volume probably only amounts to about 10 items per month.
I'm not convinced.
IMO, expanding via RAID card is a bad idea. (Unless you need RAID for other legitimate reasons, such as redundancy/reliability, etc., and throw a lot of money at doing it right!)
RAID costs more energy. Say $10/year per SATA-internal disk, regardless of capacity. Assuming 24x7 power applied. Maybe a little lower with spin-down.
That may not sound like much, but it doesn't yet include the biggest cost of that additional energy -- heat. If your PC enclosure is remotely typical, its air circulation around the disk drives is pathetic. Pack two or three close together in most PC enclosures, and they will over-temp in almost any PC enclosure. (Check your SMART data, if you don't believe me.)
I'm not saying that high-density RAID drive cooling and powering is not possible. Indeed, it is. There are plenty of well-engineered commercial RAID storage solutions on the market (and plenty of bad ones too, BTW). They have great cooling and power distribution. But, they are EXPENSIVE! Your $69-versus-$99 disk comparison is a drop in the bucket compared to the costs of doing RAID well!
A week hiking on the Colorado Trail.
Five days in Iceland (Reykjavik area), including a trip down an extinct volcano core (http://www.insidethevolcano.com/).
A coupla days in and around Edinburgh, Scotland.
Several days hiking on Ireland's Beara Peninsula.
A week-long family reunion in Doolin, County Clare, Ireland. (My family).
24 hours in Boston, Massachusetts, reunion with old friends.
A week-long family reunion in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. (My wife's family).
I checked the "spectacular" box.
(I don't usually get that much time off work, this took some special arrangements!)
Second place goes to Rube Goldberg.
Honorable mention goes to Wallace (of Wallace and Gromit), but I don't think he's dead. Or alive, for that matter.
Not another one!
Browse this list before you get too excited about this development.
Just for the heck of it, I tried searching for downloads of known 100% legal content -- Linux distributions, kernels etc.
Sure enough, there are people (well ok, IP addresses actually) accused of being thieves because they downloaded perfectly legal materials. Nowhere on Ter's web site did I see a single mention of the distinction between merely using file sharing (which is legal) and using it to violate copyright laws (which is not).
This distinction is apparently unknown to Suren Ter, or more likely deliberately ignored. His rhetoric clearly states that if you ever use file sharing, under any circumstances, you are a thief!
What a bozo!
Why? What is gained by allowing a phone to split in half?
This is a serious question: I can't RTFA because the web site is apparently overloaded at present. (And I can't listen to the video as I have no headset or speakers).
If it's worth hacking on well, it's worth hacking on for money.
