Daniel: As I previously said privately -- congratulations.

On a different note, thanks to all of the rain we've had here in the northeast US this year, my basement office flooded while I was away in the hospital, tending to more important issues. As a result, both my development and backup machines were destroyed, including all of my undelivered work, research projects, et cetera.
I had that happen a few years ago. I had/have a $20k insurance policy on my office computers and data. However, I was very surprised to find that it didn't cover flooding.
Since then I keep a HD backup of everything in a waterproof safe inside a larger fireproof safe located in my garage. There's nothing there but data.
I also keep another HD backup in another waterproof/fireproof safe hidden in my office and yet another dedicated HD backup in my computer to backup my development HD.
I also have DVD backups for every year and have those stored at various locations.
Everything is backed up at least three fold. I am considering online backup and waiting for the cost to go down.
So, the most I will ever lose is the work I did today -- unless I lose my house, garage, and my kids houses -- and if that happens, I have larger problems than data loss.
