[Nottingham] Backups: How do you do yours?

In the past I have written small scripts to be run from cron, they do
all the work and log somewhere with appropriate redirection or command
line options. The scripts are written so they produce no output by
default, but if there is an error then they produce some messages.
Then I enable the cron feature to mail someone when the scripts
produce output.

This means I can leave cron to do the work and I get an email when
things go wrong.
