Internet &amp; Networking "The Electronic Frontier Foundation, supported by Carpathia Hosting, today announced its plans to assess the scope of the issue facing Megaupload users who are at risk of losing their data. Carpathia has created this website to assist users in contacting EFF. EFF will review the factual situations shared by users and, if possible, try to resolve their issues." I <3 EFF. Seriously. These guys are universally fighting the good fight.

Cloud based storage has been marketed in such a way that people believe it's safe.

When I was younger, I worked at an ISP that advertised daily tape backups for their web hosting. We didn't even own a tape drive and there were no backups of the Linux servers. I eventually was made an NT sys admin and started backing up files on my local desktop system (which had it's own dangers if I got malware). After this experience, I don't trust anything.
