It's also a good time to take care of all those administrative tasks
that you've been lazy about.

I created an authentication subkey this year and never properly backed
it up.  Sure I could revoke it and create a new one, but getting the new
key onto a bunch of servers will be a pain.

Also put FDE on my laptop, but I was running Time Machine on an
unencrypted external drive.  So now I'm encrypting this 2 TB whopper.
Looks like I've got about 1 day, 3 hours, and 28 minutes to go.

So ask yourself if you have backups of your critical info.  If the
backups are up-to-date.  If the media is still good.  If it's
appropriately secured.  If you printed out a rev cert.  If you're still
using the same lame password on every website, even though you know deep
down you shouldn't be.  Etc...
