The Institute for Backup Trauma starring John Cleese

One of the major points about my Distributed Virtual Personal Computer (DVPC) concept is to completely eliminate the tedium and anxiety over backing up your data.  But given that most companies have to depend on traditional "backup" technologies, a company named LiveVault has an interesting online, remote, service-oriented approach to backup, including real-time backup.  They have an entertaining video starring Monty Python's John Cleese, hypothetical director of The Institute for Backup Trauma.  I'd tell you that it's hilarious, but too many of us have experienced data losses to feel cheerful about the topic.  In any case, check out (or should say check yourself into) The Institute for Backup Trauma.
 
I heard about this video from Alex Barnett's blog on MSDN.
