[ubuntu] Mirror encrypted home partition to Amazon glacier?

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, My Ubuntu pc has a separate home encrypted partition with a lot of important personal data (photos etc.). I now want to backup this partition to Amazon Glacier (which is really cheap @ 1 cent/GB/month). They claim to have some kind of API, which I can't find a lot of information about. Does anybody possibly have experience on doing something like this? Could this be done when my pc is running (because the home folder is decrypted then)? If I could get this to work relatively easy this would be the killer argument for me to convince people to migrate to Ubuntu, so all tips and (Hardware)
