"real men don't take backups. They just put their stuff on a public FTP
server and let the world mirror."
Every user who has a checkout of a git repository is making backups...
Copyshops should do vouchers. So that next time some bureaucracy requires you
to mail a form in triplicate, you can mail it just once, add a voucher, and
save on postage.
