A one year old backup just saved me 4 to 5 hours of work. People dou yourself a favor and invest in backups.

Will buy another backup disk right now. Just to have one I can take with me while traveling.

Maybe I should write a blogpost about my backup setup. 🤔

@arl last weekend I was very happy to have migrated my backup from an offline, external disk onto a server available over ssh from basically everywhere.

@arl also: yes, write it down. more people need to know about how to set up a backup :)

@arl Do it, the more we have, the more people can take inspiration. What solution are you using currently?
