A friend was enthusing recently about his OS/X system and "Time
Machine". This ZDnet piece on "Google Backup" prompted a thought.

Like many 'experienced' admins/Unix Users, I take backup/restores
seriously on servers I manage for others but have poor or no solutions
for my desktops...
The sort of solution "Time Machine" provided for my friend.

Recently I played with DRBD at work and thought "this'd be great to
mirror my work desktop root & home filesystems to another m/c".

I've not done that because it didn't seem to be common usage...

CLUG is a broad church with a bunch of talented individuals with
many/diverse interesting solutions.

Anyone care to contribute what they do?
Automatic is good.
Using 'snapshots' of any sort gets bonus points :-)
