    Are you aware of any bombings of datacenters, by the Unabomber or anyone
    else, in the United States, in the past ten years?

    How about twenty years?

    How about ever?

    The only thing I can think of that might qualify would be to categorize
    someone's departmental servers in the Trade Center as a "datacenter", but
    that kind of scare tactic generally works only on the foolish.

    So, anyway, if I catch your drift, you're suggesting that the thing to do
    in order to persuade some tightfisted CIO to spring for offsite backup is
    to drop off a copy of Kaczinsky's manifesto on his desk. That seems like
    a *great* idea. Why don't you try it and let us all know how it works?

    However, next time I'm trying to sell someone something, myself, I think
    I'll pick an example that he can actually relate to, like a flood or a
    fire. Maybe I'm just stupid.
