Well, nothing has 'sploded yet, and I ran "Keep" in KDE (which uses
rdiff-backup in the backend), together with an ethernet cable
(wifi was taking too long and was affecting everyone else in the

Now, when I go to fill out those desktop linux surveys, I can finally
answer the question about backup solutions.  :)
(Other than the Linus-y 'put it on an FTP site' answer for my source code)
