YOU: so the A in RAID stands for "Array"?
US: Yes.
YOU: doesn't that mean saying "RAID array" is redundant?
US: Of course. That's what the R is for.

@amsomniac @diodelass Better get more than one of them. Redundant RAID Arrays of Independent Disks.

@diodelass @amsomniac I have nothing but good things to say about my General Recursive RRAID of Independent Disks.

@diodelass "Okay, so better say we should put in some RADI disks then. That should not be redun… oh well…"

@diodelass arrgh, that "radi" typo was not intended 🙄

YOU: Is raid a proper backup subsitute?
US: That's what the B stands for.

@diodelass Think of the additional "array" as a parity word
