Not necessarily. It seems to me that since you're going to be storing data
on many different machines, some of which may be more reliable than others,
you want a certain amount of built in reliability. It would really suck if
the one person with the essential piece of data suddenly looses interest
and deletes it. Perhaps use the dialup computers for backups of data stored
on permanantly connected computers, or perhaps figure out how many dialup
copies you need to ensure one copy is permanantly accessible.
