safe backup

Life in the digital age can present problems for posterity — disks fail, machines die early deaths, and suddenly your kid's baby photos simply no longer exist. Remote backup service can get expensive, so NetworkGarage concocted a method for on-site fireproof backup using a safe with built-in power strip, NAS device, and two Powerline ethernet adapters to provide ethernet over powerline network connectivity to the unit inside. The setup is fairly simple and is detailed in the article, so if you're looking to invest in a relatively low-cost method of fireproof backup in-house, you might do well to give this a peep.
