While I agree offsite backup is important, I cannot help but wonder how viable of an option this is for photographers.
It was viable enough for the New Orleans VA hospital. Just prior to being struck by Katrina, they downloaded their patient database to hard drives, evacuated it to the VA hospital in Houston TX, and put it back on line so that patient records would be available wherever the patients evacuated to.
With 3 and 4 terabyte drives available, rotating hard drives and keeping one off site is not a tremendous problem.
To be honest, though, it's probably satisfactory for 99.44% of possibilities just to keep one drive physically separated, even if in the same house.
