    I've never heard of sending something to someone to have it 'graded' in exchange for payment. Sounds silly to me.



    Did they actually sell at that price, or was that just an asking price? If so,...

    Do I get the impression you don't like the Green party?

    To be honest, I don't care much for them myself anymore.

    I've never used a VPN.

    The closest thing I do is use Andrews & Arnold's L2TP service, which works kind-of like a VPN, but is unencrypted, so does not give you any added privacy. I use this to...

    Yes, I just duplicate the drive onto another drive every so often. So any backups may not be 'up to date', but if there were to be a catastrophic failure, it will only be recent stuff that gets lost.
