Fifth Time’s Still the Charm

Just shy of one year ago, my friend Vlad was getting married and told me Backblaze had saved him losing his mind the night before his wedding.

A few days ago he and his wife Jamie posted this exchange on my Facebook page:

Five times in one year? Cosmic rays? Aliens attacking the hard drives?

Either way, glad we could be there!
