I know that one of these days I'm going to lose my laptop and, I'd like to move to a situation where all my data is backed up to the cloud and the laptop is essentially a dumb box (I already make regular backups to a remote drive).
Ideally, I'd like the process to be as transparent as possible so that I don't have to think about it at all. What are your tips for acheiving this?
Some things I already use to this end:
- remote source control providers (unfuddle, beanstalk, github)
- google docs
I still have a load of code/photos/docs/tomboy-notes that aren't stored in the cloud though.
Also, what about my Ubuntu set-up? How can I minimise the pain in setting up a new laptop to the configuration I have mine in at the moment?
One tip per answer please.
