Re: Backups to the cloud

Well the software works OK - but upload speed is not fast enough by one order of magnitude. I'm going to try another Internet provider but that will take time to put in place. Sigh. Things are never simple!

Re: Backups to the cloud

I'm experimenting with ArqBackup going to Amazon Glacier - will need to see what the charges are like, and also how slow the uploading is. It's got a long way to backup all the files!

Re: Backups to the cloud

I am looking at a bit more than that Draclvr but nowhere near 7TB! This guy has loads of photos and videos apparently (that he's taken.)

Re: Kristi from credit card services

It must cost them something to inflict this pain on people - not enough obviously.

Re: Backups to the cloud

I spoke with a guy at work who uses Amazon S3 to backup his stuff to - I'm glad I don't have as many files as he does as he has 7TB backed up to the cloud!

Backups to the cloud

Not sure if this fits in this room or the general one. I backup the Mac I have to external hard drives, keeping some off site for security. I've started looking at also backing up some of the files to the cloud as well for additional peace of mind. What experiences have people had with backing up to...

Re: Harold Halibut

I've never played them but there were some games with titles like "Echo .." I think set beneath the waves.

Thanks for mentioning this Kickstarter Lady K! I'm not as aware as I used to be of Kickstarters for Adventure games.

Cutting down the working week

As I approach retirement I've cut down the days I work from 5 to 4, to get used to having to work even less!

Has anyone else done this? How did it go for you? Any lessons learnt?

Re: Off on another cruise

Sorry Lady Kestrel, that was in Catherine's Palace in St Petersburg and we were being marched through. The paintings were used in an unusual way, almost more as tiled wallpaper than as art gallery. There was a name for that style of using pictures but I've forgotten it!

Thanks for looking!
