[kwlug-disc] Deleted files

So, at 5 Mbps (avg.?, DSL?), that's, what,  5/8 MBps, so 10 GB should 
take 163,840 seconds to copy up, or 1.9 days. Best case.

Oops, sorry, that's up, and residential service is usually asymmetric. 
So if 5/512 down/up, it's actually 19 days up to back it up.

Sounds like one would want to be selective about how much goes up, given 
the durations involved.

Having been selective ... where does the rest of your data go to be safe?

Wouldn't an eSata drive, rsync'ed to from everywhere on the net, 
nightly, be more optimal?

Or, what am I missing?
