Your talking about heated battles, he's talking about long term stalemates. If the rain floods my trench and I have to sit on the side, it would theoretically be the perfect time to pick off some enemy soldiers who are doing the same thing. In reality I'm trying to keep my food from floating away or being eaten by swimming rats and I will wave at that poor human stuck in the same situation as I and basically declare a temporary truce.

no RAID for me Desktop (server) runs headless, Opensuse. 1 OS HD, 1 Data hard drive, currently 1TB. A third drive is in the case and mounts itself and rsyncs on a weekly basis, This saves me from fat finger mistakes replicating instantly.
I shuffle everything into a crashplan account as an archive.
This is mostly long term storage data, like pictures, music, ebooks that have been organized in a calibre library.

I have multiple laptops, tablets, and phones that the family use.

If it's so easily replicable, why hasn't it been replicated?
Hulu, more expensive and always has ads even with subscription.
Amazon, expensive up front or per episode costs.
Apple, expensive per episode pricing.
others, no selection or commercials.

In all, I find netflix's back catalog very compelling and well worth $7 / month. The original programming is icing on the cake.
