who have a m0n0wall installation that is not responding for various reasons and have a need to get
there config.xml due to the lack of a backup.  I am curious how often everyone else backs up their
configs.  I backup mine every time I make a major change (ie. add/remove/change a filter rule,
add/remove/change a NAT mapping, etc.).  My backups could be a couple times a day and sometime not
for over a month.

Hate to say it, but never.  And we have about 30 out there...  Sigh... 
So far, only one major failure, and the lightning took out the APs as 
well, so everything had to be replaced.
