I have a really good friend who insists on doing most things manually. I'm talking manual backups, manually site moves, manual updates. He's a much stronger webmaster than I am and the running joke between us is the old tortoise and the hare competition. I depend on automated processes because I'm prone to screwing things up if I do it manually , and my mistakes end up making things take twice as long as they should. Where do you guys stand? Manual? Automated? or Hybrid?
