[ale] Deja-Dup



I have recently been checking into a service called
crashplan(crashplan.com).  They have windows, osx, linux and open
solaris clients.

They claim backups for a single computer is $54/yr.
Any computer in the home is $100/yr.

They also state they will backup a NAS.

I haven't tried them yet but it might be of interest to some of you out
there.

Do any of you have any experience with them?
