Getting peace of mind – at a price

I confess that one of my biggest fears has been that any work I do on my MSc project will be lost in some sort of catastrophic computer disk crash.

Git – and the various free services available, such as github, offered a good way of backing the work up. But given that the project is based on the Linux kernel which is bigger than the official maximum size of a github project, it looked less than hopeful.

(That was not helped by their support staff – one of whom appeared to tell me I should delete the binaries in the kernel and I should be ok.)

So I have gone for unfuddle. It’s not free – $24 a month for a 2 GB repo – but it should do the job with no problem.
