I’m pleased to say that we finally have a comprehensive backup system for our home network, an important part of computer administration which up to now has been slightly disparate and disjointed. The new hardware – an external 160GB Seagate hard drive connected via USB. We also picked up some DVD+Rs to replace the current CD-R regime for certain documents that can be stored off-site.
Interesting, when taking into account the documents stored on all 4 PCs (including photos, music and video) the total cost only comes to a little over 20GB which leaves plenty of room for expansion!
I hope everyone has been sticking with The Apprentice too – very good episode tonight I thought. Especially Margaret ‘Mother Hen’ Mountford’s comment (sorry, just what we call her ) that they were dealing with “A winger, a liar and a planner”! The weaker ones are definitely being whittled down now (after a couple of unfair firings earlier) which should lead to an exciting climax. I think Ruth is the strongest at the moment, with Ansell also impressing to some extent. Paul… well, he has a chance.
Oh, and that wonderful moment in life when a vending machine gives you extra change? I got 50p from that today
I watched The Apprentice, shocking i know! And to be honest, it was quite good. I might be watching next week’s edition too.
Bye xx (not in that way tho!)
Last time I used one, the vending machine stole 90p from me.
I once got an extra chocolate bar free
After it buggered up and got stuck…
Nic if you had done like i said and licked it it wouldn’t have!
Once I wanted to but some Rowntreees Fruit pastels…. i put 30/35p in the machine, and it didn’t stop spinning…i ended up getting 6 packets!!! great!
It’s a shame Rob’s blog wasn’t backed up and is now ‘lost’ in cyberspace Couldn’t say it on his website obviously, so I wanna say ‘yay’ to Rob’s new design!
Btw, I watched BBC2 this morning (one off I swear) and saw the Red Dalek in that Dr Who film!
What?! How?! Aghh!!
Hurrah for Red Daleks though
That’s a thing!
Somehow when getting the new look done the blog file went missing, and I can’t remember getting rid of it, for one my FTP wouldn’t let me delete the whole folder without asking first, so I wasn’t sure how it had gone :S
Luckily the hosting company had a full backup of the blog
Hooray for backups
What the Doctor Who from ’65 with Peter Cushing? Well I saw that yesterday (too?) and I couldn’t stop thinking of you! Twas a fabulous Red Dalek!
…and the CAPTCHA as I enter this is so close to being TARDIS!
