Diamond Maze on Tempermanent Hold

So, the new XNA Diamond Maze is checked into SVN, but now entering tempermanent hold status.

The word tempermanent is one of my pet words, like complexibility. In the case of tempermanent, it means “something that is meant to be ‘temporary’ but will in all likelihood become ‘permanent'”, which is kind of like income tax and the tolls on the freeway in Chicago.

But! The code is there if I should ever want to pick it back up.

Speaking of backing up, I am still missing a crucial step in my backup scheme. Yes, I have a repository on my external HD, and I keep my stuff checked in. If my computer takes a dive, and the external HD doesn’t I’m good. If the external HD takes a dive, and my computer is fine, I’ve got the local copy I can revert to, and make a new repo on a new external HD.

But! If both fail, then what?

    Carbonite carbonite carbonite. It takes a while to do the initial update, but after that it’s invisible.

    Here’s a referral link for a free trial (and some free time for me if you buy in). http://www.carbonite.com/raf/signup.aspx?RAFUserUID=2731

    And yes I really do recommend it. We have a seven-day backup to a NAS here, but Carbonite’s the last-resort insurance policy if we get hit by a tornado or something.
