I admit being a bit lax in the documentation. My assumption is I will always be available and I will always be doing any recovery work. I figure this will align the cosmos to keep me alive and well. In fact it's my only "insurance plan."
It's worked so far.
I'll take this article as a kick in the trousers to get writing that plan...
BTW I actually do use the "asteroid scenario" as the ultimate fail point when explaining my work to clients. My off site is on average 50 miles from the original data and hardware, so it'd take a perfectly placed car sized asteroid or Tsar Bomba to foil my systems.
In that case plan B is whip out the heirloom seeds, water filter, short wave radio and attempt to make contact with any survivors. I do NOT expect any of them will be asking about any data recovery.
