So I killed my kernel. Maybe a VM with checkpointing is a good way to work?

If anyone knows a clean way to checkpoint computational state in iPython/Jupyter, could they leave me a comment, or drop me an email ...please?

As we're all aware, I'm not the sharpest knife in the box. I killed my Python kerne while doing the Udacity assignments. The fact that I know no Python makes this almost predictable, I guess :)

I need to quickly figure out a way of checkpointing my work. This is the second time I've lost state, and that list of 529114 training exemplars takes a LOOONG time to uncompress. Suddenly, running the notebook  fully inside a VM sounds like a timesaver.
