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
