Definitely a good wake-up call. I have a laptop that I leave running
almost all the time now; I've just set up a cron to dump my DBs and
then sync the whole folder down to local.

Of course, the funny thing is that I'm using about 2 GB of my 80 at
Dreamhost, and I'm using locally about 70 GB of my 80 GB drive... I
really should just be syncing them *both* ways.
