Very creative. I like it. This is particularly good for PowerBook users because they can use a PC Card adapter that's very compact and easy to tote. The only thing is, you have to keep the CF media separate from the computer. One of my good buddies had his iBook nabbed while sitting on the can in an Airport restroom. Someone reached under the partition and took his case complete with laptop and goodies. In that situation, if your backup media is in the case, you've lost your work. There's something very appealing for me about having the duplication on another server far away ...
