I (well, http://stats.distributed.net/) has been bit by this before. One
issue with RAID is that it does you no good if you don't get
notification that a drive has failed. Even after that, there's still
risk of another failure before a sucessful rebuild, and of course
something can always go wrong during recovery.

In a nutshell, RAID's still no replacement for backups.
