"Geographic redundancy" = "buy one each from two different companies, rather than two from the same".

I'm not talking hot-swap, fast-failover, high-availability, but I'm also talking "website doesn't fall over just because someone pressed a switch".

Go hit Google for "site:theregister.co.uk" and change the date range from to 2005-2006. They were just as big, just as sarky about downtime, doing articles about grid-computing, etc. etc.

We're talking the .xxx TLD era, not the dark ages.
