will the HandyKey be haunted by the ghost of Qinkey [http://www.naec.org.uk/artefacts/hardware/quinkey]? Or am I the only one that still remembers them?

I have been reading your articles for a while, and I find them amusing, interesting and intelligent . I thank you.for this
May I wish your wife a short half life, and a long life for all.
Is that a bomb in your pocket...?
"An employee at a neighboring 7-11 convenience store told local media that she heard a loud bang and saw her colleague lying on the floor in a pool of blood"
It seems the mans neighbours can see through walls...A result of all that microwave radiation no doubt...

Every variety of storage fails at some point. The manufacturers of your failed HDD are unlikely to be making your data available again, and even if they can it's with charges and without guarantees.
Users were unable to access their data for a few hours in this case, which I understand is "less-than-optimal". However, the data was still there and now available again.
As the adage says, "Data that isn't backed up, is data you don't need", and anyone who uses online storage as their backup repository probably needs a better backup plan.

Then again, I work in a cloakroom...
