Loyd,

I dunno about BRMS...

But I've heard that 1 out 3 three businesses that suffer a catastrophe go
out of business.  That implies that a lot of catastrophes are partial, in
scope.

If you don't have a backup/recovery plan in place AND TESTED, (and I didn't,
in my shop...)-:, the odds a disaster will do your company in necessarily
hafta go up astronomically...  (Maybe to 2 out of 3, 3 outta 4?!?)
