I've said this several times. I do have backups. However a compressed 
file on a remote server won't work for me when I go to do my job on 
Monday. We seem to have strayed way too far into my personal 
circumstances, I'd love to have every bit of kit to do every job I ever 
need to get done but as with everything in life sometimes you just can't 
have what you want, sometimes you have to work damn hard for it. And 
sometimes you lose it all and have to start again. I'm working on that, 
and before anyone comments, no, my current job doesn't require me to 
have this stuff. I repair games consoles so although IT related it's 
still a rather different role.
