That's what I've been saying. Thanks for confirming it. $0.10/GB equates to far less than the $200 for a 750GB drive I quoted.

I have offered inexpensive hardware to the community for free on several occasions. Most recently in Justin Kestelyn's article on page 20 of the November/December issue of Oracle Magazine. Two NetApps went out the door ... one to Victoria BC and one to Portland Oregon. The others are still waiting for a good home. <g>
