Backup and save constantly. I do the latter more than the former.

I usually run an rsync to an external about once a week although I should probably set it up as a cron job so I don't have to worry about forgetting.

I live on the wild side, I don't save or back anything up. I create a program or app and if something happens while I am doing that, I should have done it faster.

Once, I was even on the verge of curing cancer, but sadly the power went out.
