Thankfully, I have three separate backup email addresses, all on different domains. It is very unlikely that all of them will be down at the same time so I'm generally reachable at all times.

Update (16 November): To the scumbag who's trying to guess my GMail password and clicking the "forgot password" link so many times - give up, doofus! I used to be a sysadmin, so my passwords all look like "rj87iy90l" and I can actually remember them.
