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!

Re: Off on another cruise

I'm back - and now enjoying working a 4-day rather than a 5-day week!

I've written up and posted pictures from the most recent cruise at http://www.alofmethbin.com/Articles/Diary/2017/Baltics/index.html .

Good to be back!

Off on another cruise

My wife and I are off on another cruise tomorrow, this time to the Baltics. So I'll be quieter than my normal quiet for the next fortnight! Visiting foreign ports is nice. Making friends as you eat meals in a posh restaurant is nice. Not having to go to work each day is nice. But I really love is ge...
