    Two good alternatives:

    1) Do the swap thing as you said; if you do it right then swapping back will just be copying over a bunch of files. I like to make installations of projects as self contained as possibly for that reason. On FreeBSD I usually make a perl/apache+mod_perl installation in /home/perl (a script installs Perl and the CPAN modules). Each project then run as their own user, with their own httpd.conf, apachectl and all. Moving a project is just a matter of rsyncing /home/foo.

      I'm tempted to JDI. I'd need to reserve a weekend or an evening for it, but I guess it could be done. What scares me most is knowing what I'll miss in the backup - My MP3's take up most of the space, so I'd have to figure out a way to store those temporarily. Perhaps I'll just buy a new computer - that's always the easiest way ;-) I bet I could just about afford a 600 or 700 Mhz pentium second hand.
      • Maybe you could just buy an extra disk. 80G go for really cheap this days, even in France. They also tend to fill-up just as fast as 40M used to a couple of years ago, darn MP3s and AVIs (not to mention people would crank up modules by the dozen)!
