No, actually the backup is more like  tar ...|openssl ...|dd ...|
tee /dev/nsa0 |md5 

But yeah, for the disk, you're right:
  dd if=/dev/urandom | tee /dev/ad2 | md5
  dd if=/dev/ad2 | md5  
and compare. 


It is said that the Internet is a public utility. As such, it is best
compared to a sewer. A big, fat pipe with a bunch of crap sloshing
against your ports.
