OT: Revoking Old Keys... my problem

I'm not sure that I'd consider any place on the WEB as safe for a revocation
cert.  Perhaps a bank vault or a heavy fire safe at home.  Committing the
entire revocation cert to memory would be a little extreme!

So far as a 'safe' place to keep the reovation certificate, which I have 
as yet not made and am going to do so as soon as this clears the system, 
would a 'web mail' account (Lycos.com for instance) be considered 
'safe?'  If I had done that before I would not be having this problem
