Additional Information

Notes on archive locations:
I'm currently using Ubuntu One which is fine for limited storage requirements. However, I find I'd rather have my own dropbox. Turns out there is an open source version that seems to work pretty good: ownCloud

I'm researching its setup and use for PiBox and related projects. More to come on this later.
