Except this is a disaster recovery plan: it must not rely on me being available. I'm looking at a scenario in which the survivors of the disaster have bought replacement hardware, hired someone who's done a bit of Linux, and handed them a set of offsite backup tapes and a ring-binder. (I can get most sites tapes offsite by 60+km on a daily basis: if a disaster simultaneously takes out, for example, the city of Durban - at sea level, population 3.5 million - and Pietermaritzburg, 80km inland and 750 metres above sea level, I'm not sure restoring our backups is going to be the biggest worry.)
