Totally agreed. Started using BackupBuddy a couple of years ago and it's 
worth every penny. Have it sync'ing 30+ sites into Dropbox doing db 
backups daily and full site backups weekly. If worst comes to worst I 
can spin everything back up on a fresh server in under 30 minutes with 
minimal data loss.
