Nice theory. Here is where it failed me. One time while rearranging
some network cables in my closet, I accidentally bumped the power
switch on the back of my master backend's power supply. My UPS didn't
help with that. I instantly turned the system back on, but by the time
I had finished doing everything and got back upstairs (I don't
actually have a keyboard/monitor hooked up to box) I had completely
forgot about checking that everything was fine, and didn't notice
until quite a while later that there was a problem. In the mean time,
I think it missed a few recordings. That's when I added the cron entry
to run it at reboot.
