comment How to block Bad robots, spiders, crawlers and harvesters
Sorry, I haven't been in a position to do this in a long time... This link looks like it will help you though. It mentions fail2ban integration of a "bottrap" bsdguides.org/2012/a-simple-bot-trap-using-robots-txt I would add an invisible link on any page you want to protect in addition to the robots.txt suggestion.

You may also want to set up a honeypot... Just add an invisible link on the home page that triggers your ban if loaded. Humans will not (normally) access it as it's not visible but crawlers will.

comment Cloning my hard drive as a backup
If you clone the device (e.g. /dev/sda) you get the partition table in the clone. If you clone a partition (e.g. /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2) you must recreate them manually to restore.

comment Mirroring svn repository
@cardy I'm afraid you aren't going to find one. Such a feature would need to be built into the SVN server for it to be supported.

comment Mirroring svn repository
@cardy, in that case, there are several svn mirroring solutions listed via google search.. but I have never used any of them, so I can't recommend one. google.com/search?q=svn+mirror

comment Securing a rack in a shared server room
Also, your security should not stop at the rack. Your data may be more valuable than the equipment it runs on. Encrypt the drives of anything with valuable or sensitive data.
