PolishLinux.org just published a new article on installing, configuring (step-by-step) and using Subversion at home to control text documents. Make others read it by digging it at http://digg.com/software/HOWTO_Manage_Your_Documents_with_Subversion Smiling

Here is an extract from the document:

"Version control systems are commonly used by programmers. They allow for easy team work and version management. However their benefits can easily be exploited by regular users as well. This article’s purpose is to help you take advantage of Subversion at home to improve control over your own set of documents"

Hope it will be useful to some of you. Subversion is really worth trying, even if you just have a few documents you need to access securely from a remote location and I think the description is quite straight.

Well, this was the sixth

Well, this was the sixth time Nuxified got dugg, I think, and only two of the times did it bring us down. First was a plain bandwith exceeded problem (we had alot of Ubuntu screenshots) and second was this React OS story where it wasn't a bandwith problem but the raw amount of traffic and mysql connections. I suppose the React OS story generated alot more interest compared to others we had (well it has more than 1100 diggs anyway). Oh and Digg.com keeps growing so more traffic can be expected each time!

Ought to be prepared for next time!

Nice article. For those who

Nice article.

For those who find svn (or cvs) too complicated, too slow, or too inflexible because of the client-server model, I highly recommend darcs. In the past I have used both cvs and svn, now I use darcs almost exclusively.

ah yes, version control

ah yes, version control systems... I have seen several "manage your data with CVS" style articles in the past... After svn, I wonder what will be next. Maybe git, as it allows snazzy titles. What a stupid content tracker.

anyway, this is probably useful Smiling dugg.
