Soon, if you'd like to keep your job you MUST also like it.
First of all ask him WHY he asked you in the first place.
Next someone will publish a paper on how talking faster makes it more difficult to the listener to spot logical incongruencies.
What's even better is that you can prove that. Kind of.
Tell anyone to keep a tally of how much they spend and how much they win when playing. If they tell you that you logic is flawed because they can win more than they spend... *dare* them to prove you wrong in practice!

Mirroring is not backup I agree.
Once I tried this at home...
Had a backup server where I kept my data, the server had a mirror with 4 disk; each disk had a copy of the data I was working on. Data was written to snapshots on a mirrored partition before being commited to the main partition in order to avoid losing data due some server management mishap. Data was written on this server through CVS to have more control over changes to data.
Guess how I lost my data?
The server got knocked off my desk and slammed hard against the floor!

3) Ask for budget to redevelop
4) Redevelop using hidden blueprints
