I spoke with a tech support guy. They actually back up the sql boxes nightly. One thing concerned me - they back up all their sql machines to a backup machine. He didn't think the data ever went to tape. When I asked what happened if a hacker wipes out the sql box AND the backup box, he didn't have a solid answer.
Got broadband but no static IP (cable). I'd rather spend my time doing development, than administration and maintenance anyway.
