  9. http://www.dollydrive.com/dolly-clone/

  10. http://www.backblaze.com/
    Alternative to CrashPlan. Seems nice, same price (near enough) but will delete external drive files after 30 days. Sucky.

    How to split out a subdirectory of a git repository into its own branch, and then pull that into another repo. `git subtree split -P path/to/subdir -b new_branch` then `git pull /path/to/old new_branch`. Genius.

    Alternative to bootstrap, includes more widgets apparently.
  17. https://coreos.com/
    Very simple linux OS that can be used in containers (for example with docker) to facilitate simplified / consistent deployments, I think.
  18. https://www.docker.io/
    Package any app as a lightweight container. Comparable to the shipping container, the idea is that containers all behave the same, apps within them do whatever they want, standardisation is achieved.
