You THINK you have one for backups. In reality you have it for it was
the will of god you fedex that el-cheapo drive to me NOW!

But to answer your well-made point anyhow; There is a certain amount
of RISK associated in opening a server (where down-time counts),
adding hardware, etc etc. The thing  is running. Let's not break it.
I'd rather get a new CPU WITH a DRIVE, for that matter. (How come you
didn't advise me on that<g>? Ah, because you don't have a spare laying

Fun talking to you. Take care.
