I have for a while been looking for better ways to include scripts in blog posts. A link to a downloadable file would be nice. Trying to get it relying on other peoples free web services so that my home server can go down/break/catch fire and all the scripts will still be available.
Tried Google docs but that forced me to change all file extensions to .txt
The free account on http://github.com seems very promising. I have only used Subversion revision control before so may take a while to get use to a GIT revision control system.
This also means I need to set up GIT on all my machines.
So for Ubuntu
$sudo apt-get install git-core
and Mac OS X
$sudo port -d selfupdate
$sudo port install git-core
My first repo is munkymorgy_scripts this is probably going to be a flat (1 level) store of the useful scripts I post.

The following link seems to suggest a good way of displaying code snippets on blogspot.com
