At $DAYJOB I started using Subversion to keep my IT Documentation in a state that could be mirrored to several locations just in case the core infrastructure went down.

“Don’t keep the recovery documentation on the same volume you are trying to recover” I tell myself.

Tortoise Subversion client releases updates regularly and I have kept an archive of older software just in case I need to roll back.

I got a laugh when I checked my Subversion stash. Earliest time stamp ~2005
