it's just having a fault tolerant mysql, hot swap system isn't cheap. we're talkin $15k minimum, to do it right. and the error we had, it would have corrupted the backup. so it wouldn't have helped.
We do backup the site twice daily, but I didn't want to lose a few hours of comments and articles. better to fix it.
