I'm horrible when it comes to keeping my own projects checked into my SVN server. It seems to be a twice a month event for me. So I was freaked out about losing a decent sum of work on my skateboard or on my laptops in general since some d-bag decided to break into my rental car?
Fear Not! I have a backup on my Windows Home Server and it does daily backups of my computers. I wish I would have had a backup from 5/1/2008, but I do have a backup from 4/29/2008 of my entire source code. The gyro code does need to be tweaked again but over all, this works. I know what I need to do to get it working properly.
I also have a backup of all my presentations and other source code that isn't too old.
While I did lose about 3 hours worth of airplane work (seriously, this is the best type of work since no one can bother you) on a different project, it isn't like I had a total system failure.
Windows Home Server, best 400 dollars I ever spent.
