But, but, but... people keep telling me I need to keep all my stuff in the cloud[tm]! Not that I *own* anything, of course, because now I just rent it, or so they keep telling me. And as computers are now largely amusement and shopping devices, there's never going to be anything I will generate and store on it anyway. Any data I do chance to generate, y'know, stuff like company financials, OCR scans, hi-res large format photos, electronics, software/hardware development, engineering drawings... obviously that is a figment of my imagination.

Which is why I just bought a few more terabytes for the NAS.
