Stackable?

The original case was stackable, but this one looks similar yet weirdly non-stackable (OK - the side antennas wouldn't help). Paris icon for stackability reasons.

Re: Build 12 to patent it

I was unhappy when I looked at their patent-happy website. They have a patent which covers using the second hand to point to "other things". Sheesh.

"Any backup that hasn't been recovery tested is potentially no backup at all".

You would / wouldn't be surprised (depending on your personal experience) at how many backups don't recover successfully when they are needed.
