The problem is that the computer cannot only hit through the power line,
it also can be hit through antenna, telefone, dsl, ... In one such event
two of my full-featured cards have been hit. But non of the data was
lost.

I think we have to live with this in private environments. Since more
than five years data has never been lost except by errors in early
reiserfs implementation.
