Hehe.. no, but there is always the quicken/quickbook file and other files 
one would not want to be seen by the outside world. :-)

I think it's an interesting thing to do.

So.. you interested in starting the two of us?
The only problem on doing this on a larger scale or even trying to promot 
it, is that people may tend to be concerned about giving someone access to 
their machine. It is a valid concern too..

I recall there was a project that would allow distributed backups and all 
data would be encrypted. I think the developer got a proof of concept 
done, but don't know if he ever got it to a working stage. Don't recall 
the name of the system unfortunately.
