Good thoughts - but I'm now in the Boise area. :)
One other thing: We currently use backuppc for all our office
computers, which stores things in such a way that pushing the backup
archive off site is nearly impossible (lots of hard links, etc).
I've read that amanda can be set up to store a copy of the backups on
an AmazonS3 share. Does anyone here have any experience doing so?
