to spit on a piece of iron before picking it up.

And they never do.  Until...

It's amazing how many people suddenly start thinking about a backup  
strategy *after* they've lost some critical data.

Everyone on the list should take this as a timely reminder to check  
that their backup and recovery strategies are operational and  
properly tested (ie: you've actually tried to recover your data from  
bare metal using your recovery strategy).

Don't hit delete just yet, go check your backups!
