I wanted to know if anyone uses Github here for hosting some of their code (non public projects) for a LONG time now I've been working on my own personnel projects, and I would store everything on a USB Key so I can work on my projects from whatever machines Iam on whether its my home desktop, or Iam travelling on with my Notebook.

I was looking around for some kind of online code repository that would allow me to upload and store my code there (PRIVATELY) and allow me to share any of my code with people that will be helping me on my various projects, so basically any thoughts on github? or possibly better recommendations?

Rent a small server VM image somewhere out in the cloud and run git/mercurial/httpd/whatever on it?

bitbucket allows private repositories for free (limited to 5 users per repository, unless you pick a payment plan).

You can run git offline, with a repository on your USB key, and push changes to your "backup" repository on Github or somewhere else whenever you are online. No perpetually running server is needed.

Mainly it's just what I use.

(Although you did mention you want private repositories - github doesn't let you have private repositories on a free plan - looks like you'd have to pay $12 per month for the same as a bitbucket free plan).

the thing is I dont want to store any of my stuff locally at the risk of losing it, or it getting damaged (I make backups from periodically, but I honestly wouldnt like to lose a single days worth of work)

If you "wouldn't like to lose a single days worth of work", you must be already performing multiple backups per day. You can replace them with trying to push your local changes to several hosted repositories, without the inconvenience of backup media; you should be able to automate such backups completely (when your changes are ready, you can run a script that does a local git commit and then, if successful, attempts a git push for each redundant remote repository).
