Removable media

From: Robin Siegel <rsiegel>

I have started using my camera's Compact Flash cards to carry files
from one computer to the other, and also to back up my computers in
case of a failure. I work on our disaster preparedness committee,
and I'd like to be able to recommend this as a good backup medium,
but I don't know if there might be a reason not to.

Does anyone else use these handy little cards (or the equally handy
thumbdrives) as backup media? Any information would be appreciated.
