I don't have any laptops to throw into the mix, like Martin Fowler in a related article. But I work both at home and at two different work locations. Now how do I keep everything in sync and how do I keep myself sane?
First things first: my university machine has an excellent network connection and is allways on. That's my server and the center of my electronic life :-)
Email, important documents, source code. That's about all. Some loose bits hanging around on some harddisks (mp3s for instance). But most of it is covered.
And, yes, I backup the mail directories, the cvs repository (and the zope database) every night and upload it to a machine 4 kilometers away.
My name is Reinout van Rees and I work a lot with Python (programming language) and Django (website framework). I live in The Netherlands and I'm happily married to Annie van Rees-Kooiman.
