No worries - I've got a few enterprise-grade 1TB drives lying around
somewhere, and if I *have* to, I'll steal a couple of 2TB drives from
my backup fileserver...  :-)

The difficult part right now is coordinating a trip to the datacenter;
my wife is leaving for out of town this evening with one of the kids,
and I've got the other one for the weekend.  I suspect our colo host
will not look kindly upon a three year old in the server room ;-)
