That's the second time you've said this so I think it's about time we
cleared it up. ;)

The last time you said this the only person who replied was me, and I
said I thought it was a good idea. The email is in the thread you
quoted.

The first time the discussion came up was here:

http://lists.warhead.org.uk/pipermail/boxbackup/2004-September/000444.html

I've just reread it and it seems pretty flame free.

In fact, there appears to be only one person who didn't like the idea,
and that was only because it wouldn't work for him (a quota file being
generated would prevent the failsafe).

I still think it's a good idea and worth implementing. Just have to make
sure it sends out an email in this case, so it doesn't get missed.

Cheers,

Martin.
