Thanks for pointing that out. I usually work on
projects distributed geographically.

That's why I listen intently for threads with
clues as to how to synchronize across far away
places with small bandwidths, and how to
incrementally keep repositories mutually up
to date from far away.

Casey is right. A thousand computers in
one big room can be erased by a single
broken pipe in the men's room upstairs
from the computers.
