Once it leaves my home, I no longer fully control it, which is unacceptable.

Until it leaves your home, it's not really a backup, it's just another version. Finding a media to survive a fire is solving the wrong problem. The correct problem is to find a way for your data to survive a catastrophe that may or may not be of a type that you can guess before it happens, and the correct solution is off-site backups. Off-site does not imply cloud based, although cloud does qualify. A safe deposit box at a bank also works. Your grandmothers attic works. There are plenty of places that are outside your home but within your control.

Privileged hipster? Hey, I did my time at McDonald's so I know a shitty job when I see one. But it got me through college and college got me a reasonable job and that got me started on a career. I'm not in a big city, not (right) on a coast, and definitely not at a start up.

With all of that said, call center jobs are the sixth level of hell, and I would not recommend to my worst enemy taking that path. "Abandon hope all ye who enter here."

Work without a vision is slavery, Vision without work is a pipe dream, But vision with work is the hope of the world.
