Out of the box

[box]I can’t keep things compartmentalized.  My work doesn’t stay at work, and my personal stuff doesn’t stay at home.  So I mostly work on my laptop, and I carry it back and forth.  I want to access all my information from everywhere, but at the same time I want it to be secure.  With wi-fi and 3G I can always be connected, but I haven’t quite worked out how to access my information whenever I want.

I’m not willing to trust all my data to the cloud.  But I think it needs to be somewhere on a server that I can get to from wherever I am.  Carrying it around on a hard drive in my laptop or a portable USB drive seems a little risky.  What if I drop it, or walk too close to an MRI machine?

One option would be to keep it at work or at home behind a VPN firewall.  I’m not 100% sure how to set that up inexpensively.

How do you manage your data?
