Really?
Do you know these guys? I haven't used any of the backup services yet (but bradamant has, very happily).

What's the catch? Why would they want to give me all that space for free in perpetuity? Are you signing up?

Oh, and happy holidays. :-)

power of crowds
They normally charge for services - this window is so they can establish a broad userbase. I am sure, once they have all these "free" users, they will set upon a conversion process, where they will offer all sorts of bells and whistles to existing users, at a reduced fee, in an attempt to make business. Once they have people in the door, they are halfway to paying users, since they can market to you.

It is not so odd a model, stepping away from it. Disk is cheap, and bandwidth isn't bad.

oh, duh
happy holidays to you too - i signed up when it was still a paid service, but am very happy with what they have. i already have my own backup methods, but one can't ever have too many, and the price is right here.

Thanks
Done—I signed up. I get naturally nervous when free offers are stuck in front of me, but I trust your judgment. (More than my own.)
