At the moment my backup is pretty simple... when I remember/can be
bothered, drag /home/chris onto my external drive and rename it with the
date. When the drive fills up (500gb drive vs 30gb home directory should
last a while) I'll delete the oldest couple...

That being said, I admit it's not the best strategy, but it's better
than nothing.

(also, /home is a seperate drive from the rest of the install - helps
when messing around with distros and whatnot...)
