Comment: Off-site (Score 1) 446

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."

Once it hits the fan, the only rational choice is to sweep it up, package it, and sell it as fertilizer.
