The [HTML] standard has been in a strange place for years now... many, many sites still heavily use pure HTML, but it is used in radically different ways by everyone. This is a bad place for a standard - and the technologies that rely on it - to be. When a standard is stagnant, but still in heavy use, developers and software vendors begin to get very creative in coming up with ways to make the standard work with modern technologies and requirements. This can often lead to proprietary coding, which leads to fragmentation and a return to sites that work differently for different browsers and systems.

I've blogged, I've podcasted, I've written about backups and always the basic message is: You do it. You do it now. You do it regularly. It's not taboo to have multiple partners. In fact, I'd recommend it. There's nothing wrong with using, say Small Business Server backup at midnight and having Iomega do another one at 3 o'clock in the morning. The more the merrier. Save your data, save your business, lower stress, be happy, the list goes on. You can even sometimes get a discount on business insurance with a good backup solution.
