In my previous post I describing the method I used to store data online, I referred to what I was doing as a "backup" but it would have probably been more accurate to call it a near-real-time off-site mirror. In this post, I describe the pitfalls of my previous system and describe my much-improved latest technique.

I've been dabbling on code with the final aim of building a peer-to-peer distributed filesystem for a while now and I seem to keep hitting diversions along the way. In an internal monologue somewhat along the lines of "What would MacGyver do?", the idea for this concoction of open-source software and cloud services was born. In about 20 minutes or so of messing about (assuming you're comfortable with linux), I'll explain how you too can sleep sounder at night for $0.125/GB/month.
