Keeping data safe

Erm... hard disks aren't supposed to sound like this:
uruk uruk uruk uruk wheeeeclonk uruk uruk uruk uruk wheeeeclonk

I'd just like to take this opportunity to point out that the best time for backups is before your computer starts making these sorts of noises. Fortunately, on this occasion it's a disk that contains data that doesn't change very often, and the last time it was backed up wasn't very long ago.

Yes, rsync is a good thing.
