Tools I'm using toward my NaNoWriMo success, because failure isn't an option, are as follows:
Lenovo ThinkPad T400 running Ubuntu 12.10 (although any Unix like operating system suits me, this happens to be what's installed at the moment.)
This laptop has one of the best keyboards ever installed on a portable computer in the history of portable computers (See Below)
I'm also using a combination of FocusWriter to do local writing, and then I'm copying and pasting my progress into Yarny.me to get a fairly accurate word count, and a second level of "off site" backups.
Finally I'm uploading a copy of my book automatically with scripts to my Pogoplug cloud file server at home, my Google Drive, and a box.com
If I some how manage to lose all of those things I deserve what happens to me.
So let's hear it Google+ what tools/software/methods are you using to write your masterpieces?http://www.xbitlabs.com/images/mobile/lenovo-thinkpad-t61/keyboard.jpg
