OK, you've piqued my interest.  What use have you found for Plan 9?

How do you guys find time for all this? I used to have a couple of racks of boxes in the basement, then I got 
married, had three kids and started a Theology PhD program.. Now anything I do at home is purely practical.

I took on some ideas for backup though, so I am sorting out a backblaze account and using Randy's fantastic sync 
thing that he mentioned. I really do not want 18 months of research to vanish.

One thing about Backblaze is they don't have redundant sites. They have only one facility so if a giant meteor takes it 
out your data is gone. Amazon's S3 is the way to go for data that matters.
