Doomsday prep

I asked this question in my post on losing data due to hardware failure.

I wonder if there’s a good list of best practices every person should adopt to prepare for the most common system failures. For op-sec, non-SMS 2FA seems like a must. For information, there’s probably some back-up system I should be using (please send recommendations). My wife bought us an earthquake survival kit thing.What are the other categories? Which ones are critical for all and which ones are mostly useless?

Most suggestions were about what I expected. Backup your stuff to the cloud. Don’t rely on local storage.

I did not expect this lengthy guide on doomsday planning which—alongside plenty of tactical suggestions—outlines requirements for a prepper lifestyle. It contains the following commandments:

  1. Save more money

  2. Don’t lose what you’ve saved

  3. Learn new skills

  4. Don’t hurt yourself

  5. Don’t become a victim

  6. Get in shape

  7. Make friends with neighbors

  8. Write down a response plan

  9. Plans have flaws, so also write a will

I mean this also seems like a good list on how to live life prepping or not.
