Before certain events in New York, we used to talk about "hypothetical
jumbo jets" when considering our disaster plans.  Secure off-site
backups are a necessity.  Take care thought that the off-site location
really is secure.  I did hear that some of the businesses in the World
Trade Center had considered "the other tower" as a suitable location
for their off-site backups.
