How about this: A couple hundred copies of the key ( encrypted ) on
an M-disc. On the remainder of the M-disc, a Linux distribution with
everything needed to restore my data from the tarsnap cloud. And a big
README file with all the general data I'd have forgotten about how to do
it. Or just a big shell script to do it for me :).
