I come across free computers all the time too.
I thought about that solution too, but it's not feasible given the 5 mbps upload constraints of most internet plans and data caps.

I backup my RAID 1 to a USB drive and store it in a fire safe. Periodically I'll update the alternate backup at my parents house.

If anything's taking out all those locations, I've got bigger problems than lost photos.
