I burn all sensitive / important stuff onto DVDs every night at
exactly 1:01 AM. Upon finishing, I then gently place them into Life
Case (www.lifecase.com), don a flack jacket, and escort them to a
secret base I maintain in the mountains, armed with a M-4, a M203, and
a MK-19. Upon arrival, I deactivate my assassin cyborgs with a forty
word long passphrase, and a biometrics scan, and place the Life Case
into a titanium alloy safe that is 1,000 meters under the ground.
Satisified, I reactivate my cyborgs, do a couple quick patrols around
the perimeter of my secret base, and retreat to my humble abode in
Salt Lake City.
Err, I mean I tunnel rsync through ssh.
