[ale] Deja-Dup



I back up to my Moms mac mini.  Deja - Dup will take an ip address  
and port.  I had to mess with her dsl modem/router to get through it  
but it wasn't too hard.

I was just using a usb disk but my mom bought a new Mac (she'd been  
using Ubuntu for years on free hardware) and I wanted to get her on a  
backup schedule.  I though I could have Apples backup software point  
to a PC at my house and then realized that I could do the same with  
my backups.

So we are protected from fire flood (she's on a hill) and wind but  
not a nuclear attack.

Amazon does look like a good deal if you don't have a friend willing  
to open a port to you.  The pricing is a bit hard to understand but  
looks cheap.  I backup 1.5 gig off my desktop and I think Amazons  
price works out to about .30 a month with .01 per query or update.   
So $3.65 for daily backups of .30 a month of data is only about  
another $3.60 per year.  === $7.25 per year??   You cant beat that  
with a USB stick.  Am I reading this right?

I set up some folks on Carbonite at $55 a year and actually that  
seems pretty reasonable.  Except carbonite only caters to the dark  
side (closed side) of the world at the moment.
