I just got a Time Capsule for the Apple Machines, and I'm in the process 
of building a Raid5 NAS for everything else. I've still yet to figure 
out how I'm going to do offsite backups (probably a Firewire drive in a 
bank vault,) but it feels good to actually have a real backup for once 
that doesn't rely on an old tape drive that I'm not sure will spin up 
the next time, or DVD's that are months out of date.
