How do I get offsite remote backup for my NAS...on a home budget?

I'm looking for the best customer-facing remote backup solution that can back up from my network NAS drive. A lot of the customer-facing solutions like MozyHome don't support the NAS drive. Also I'm wondering...with 1 terabyte to back up, won't it take months to upload?

Two factor what???

OK, System Admins, need your help! Can you give me a basic, high level, overview of how you integrate two-factor authentication into a Windows 2008 AD network where we currently only use a username and password? And then if you can some "nitty gritty" details of how it's done that would be great. See explanation... [more inside]

Seen any good movies lately?

2 part question: 1. I used to be a member of a movie site which made recommendations based on your likes and your friends likes and movies of a similar genre, but I've forgotten what it was called. Do you know of a site like that? Maybe I can recover my membership if I can find it again! 2. Can you recommend a social network for the cinema? Preferably one with similar characteristics to the one i used to know, with a good number of European & British, as well as US, content & users.

Cheap, yet functional phone system.

So, I'm setting up a small office (3-4 stations). The roadblock I'm running into is the phone system, or lack thereof.
