Thanks for clearing that up, Mark!

If you have a look at the second paragraph on this webpage, which was
the newest Subclipse tutorial I found, and read the second paragraph, I
think you'll see why I thought TortoiseSVN needed to be part of the
equation: http://www.javahotchocolate.com/tutorials/subclipse.html. From
what you're telling me now, I'm guessing that the author just meant that
if you wanted to look at your repositiories outside of Eclipse, you'd
need something else, like TortoiseSVN.

I will start that process right now....

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm very glad I asked here before shooting
myself in the foot :-)

Hmm. I may be able to get away with the free (100 MB) account for now
but I haven't tallied up the volume of my code yet. Money is very tight
right now so I'm wondering if there are any free services where I could
put my code and still expect it to be secure and backed up? At least
until I can afford a paid service.
