Hi - I am looking to offsite my project source code, for disaster recovery management as well as for providing collabarive small team working.
I was considering assembla.com, having reviewed loads of others providing source code hosting service, from a goodle search.
Is there any other recommended service provider that one of you might want to recommend.
The service needs to be very secure, since the "source code leaves my office space", so want to ensure the service provider will absolutely keep my offsited source code safe from any prying eyes
Also i use only subversion as my source control.
Any particular recommendations? My budget is utpo $50/month for this.
I've used Assembla[^] in the past before it discontinued the free plan and it was fantastic - there's an REST API which gives you access to stuff. I experimented by writing a bug-report app which when the program crashed would submit a ticket to my project on Assembla and tag the relevant version and source-file etc. That's only the start of what you can do with it (but perhaps the most simple and useful to get up and running).
This is the first time i am going offsite with my source code, so i am bit shy/worried doing it... but have got to do it.
I have'nt got the time to manage the setup myself, although the own virtual server idea is a good one
Given i want to go offsite, is there any security concerns i must be worried about - i.e. sources getting copied without my knowledge from the offsite area, etc.
Although the service providers will say only i can view/control it via ssl access, etc, they still physically have access to it outside my office, so i am wondering if there is still scope of code theft etc that i must be aware of and provide for?
Or is it that we will have to trust that the system will work safe and think we will be safe with our source code off-sited, given that there are people out there using this code offsite idea for a while now, and they are safe with their code so far?
We use codesion (http://www.codesion.com[^]) here - very good - they support subversion and a number of other services, backup everything off site, have a web interface for managing groups and users, supply notifications, etc., etc.
...for things I could do to make a slide in a power point presentation look like a Blue Screen of Death. It will be in a part of the presentation where I mention how unstable early versions of Windows were, and it would be nice if it looked somewhat authentic (not that it will fool anyone long, I will be presenting from a Mac).
In particular, what should the message be? Though any suggestion will be welcome as I only vaguely remember what it looked like (on versions after Windows 98 it either worked fine or the computer would not run at all).
