@mdhughes Agree 100%. I need to get all of my pictures out of Dropbox and iCloud. I have most of them backed up locally on a NAS that pulls them down from Dropbox. But that's not good enough.

@jeffmueller DropBox is super convenient, but I don't feel I own something until I've run SuperDuper and Backblaze, and I should start putting drives in a safety box.

@mdhughes Good advice. I have multiple onsite and offsite backups of my photos. But.... I still love posting them (also) to Flickr.

@mdhughes I agree mostly. And I'm probably a bit extreme (I lost my master thesis when someone stole a computer from the university and since then ...) - my photos lives on an external disk, which is copied to a NAS and another external disk. The NAS (which have mirrored disks) is then mirrored to another NAS which lives in the apartment of a close relative. And I keep local copies of stuff I upload ... so I have no problem using services flickr/smugmug, if for some reason I couldn't use them I could uploaded them to another service as fast as their servers would allow.

@matigo @jemostrom The question is never "are you paranoid?", but "are you paranoid enough?"
