to paraphrase: Real men post their stuff on the net and let everyone
else back it up. 

Seriously though, I use rdiff-backup and cron jobs to pull backups of
critical data and /etc using pub-key ssh authentication to make the
connections. I have no bare-metal restoration plan, just reinstall,
install packages, recover data and /etc and roll on. 

Probably not a well advised plan, but it works for me.
