How do you handle the storage of all your photos and video?

With internet access everywhere my preferred method for storage is online. I use a bunch of SD cards to store data from cameras. I travel with a small netbook to offload the data when my SD cards fill up.

For long periods without internet access, I burn DVDs with an external curner connected to my netbook. I make two copies. One goes in the left pannier, and the other in my right. If I crash on one side, the other side is safe. Redundancy! :)

Ultimately I will mail the DVDs home to keep my data in more than one place in case my netbook is damaged or stolen. No matter how you do it, keep multiple copies in multiple locations.
