        The backup system previously mentioned stores the data four
feet from the machine serviced.  It is - explicitly - designed to
protect against catastrophic disk failure, not conflagration.
        And the backup job runs at 01:59:00, when all operators are
happily asleep.
        The other advantage to this system is the cost.  A (new) SCSI
LTO-2 and 35 tapes runs US $2000 and up; the same four week's
capacity is less than $400, maybe less than $300.
