I don't think SD cards are particularly flakey, it's just that they are a bit flimsy and can be easily broken. CF cards are much tougher, but of course much bigger. I'm fortunate in that I have CF and SD cards in my camera, saving the images to both to give me back-up within the camera.
As my Canadian pal (who still won't tell me his name!) says, you can't have too many back-ups. I use a RAID array in my PC and regularly back these up to a wireless HDD (in the attic) and about once a month download the lot to DVD-RWs. Finally, any of my pictures that I think are quite good (Yes, both of them!) I send to on-line storage.
The day you think you've found perfection is the day you stop looking, then someone else will find it and move in front of you.
