comment Split an[d] archive large backup file in constant working space
@Whitequark - And I just answered that question myself, linking to this one! Feel free to post your script here as well. If you don't, I'll probably end up modifying it to do DVD writes, and post it here if it works...

comment Split an[d] archive large backup file in constant working space
@Janne - Reliability is another important part of taking backups, and backing up to a couple of magnetic plates with a disk head spinning dangerously close to the data is much less reliable than a piece of burnt plastic read by a laser at a distance. Also, if there's a splittable backup format which can be recovered if one of the disks is destroyed, I'd love to hear about it.

I have an external hard drive. This is about the "In addition to" part of your answer.

@Benjamin - Definitely superuser. This is not a question for serverfault (Or Stackoverflow).

comment Configuring gmail for use on mailing lists
I have Firefox and Greasemonkey. The only script in Better Gmail 2 that would help me appears to be the Bottom Post in Reply, which would help with one problem (and could probably be modified to work with snipping and interleaving). The reader would still be conversation-view, colored, folding quote blocks, etc.

Thanks for agreeing with me, I'll go talk to myself and see what he can do. Ok, back now ... myself says he tried his best his first time through, and still doesn't see any obvious edits, though he agrees it should be more objective somehow. Seriously, though, I just wanted to add a warning/disclaimer.

Please be aware that this could interpreted wrongly as a subjective, touchy, controversial question, so please don't be argumentative. Treat others with respect. This should be much more about configuring a mail client, than it is about formatting email.
