    1TB, was a single pass writing random data (using "wipe", not TrueCrypt). It took 18 hours in the end.

    The camming facility in Google+ is a little buggy. Can't save settings so if your mic/speakers aren't the default ones you can't use them unless you sit in the settings popup...

    HDNL aren't anything to do with the improvement in their service, it's DHL Domestic's expertise and network that's done that. I can't believe that their merger resulted in HDNL keeping the brand... :lolwut:
