in thread I backup my files:

I don't think it's coincidence that "yearly" has zero votes

Actually, I backup yearly. My personal stuff, and for a good reason:

On the first day of every year, one of my hard disks has headcrashed. This has become a certainty, and given that I never wanted to turn to superstition (and switch off the machines over night or on New Year's Day holiday which might just save some money), I back up everything early on new years eve. That saves time in early January.

I backup things at work nearly all the time.

And of course, wolfger is right, every year aplies to be "infrequently", so I had considered checking that option.

Cheers, Sören

[Corion]: Oh yes, Friday!
[Corion]: Last day at $work before 3 weeks of vacation (well, not that I'd be really travelling, but no-work-time ;) )
[robby_dobby]: marto: yeah, I'd eventually visit Glasgow some day - just to visit the home town of GHC :-)
[robby_dobby]: Corion: Oh, that's awesome! Your timing is perfect enough to see all hell break loose when you get back at work :P
[marto]: well, let me know in advance, I'll buy you a pint :)
[Corion]: robby_dobby: No, I'm returning in the second workweek of January. The main hectic parts are in the first days after the start of the new year
[robby_dobby]: marto: and, I'm not sure I'd be around here long enough for YAPC::EU
[marto]: Corion nice, what are you plans for Christmas?
[robby_dobby]: Corion: Nice, you just won't be around to deal with the mess - enjoy your vacation :-)
[robby_dobby]: marto: Sure, will do. Thanks!
