Has anyone tried the Carbonite backup thing speaking of cloud storage? They advertise unlimited storage. I ownder if there is any hidden limitation to that. I could easily feed them over 4 TB. It would just take several years at my DSL upload speed.

And since I'm on AT&T I'd hit my cap both uploading and downloading in the event that I did ever need it.

and that's how they keep you from abusing 'unlimited.' :-)

Our office uses MozyPro. Not unlimited. But seems to be working just fine.

Hmm... conducting tattoo ink forming a real circuit within a body...

I just back up all my data at home to a computer at work, and vice versa.
No one with any amount of computer talent should be paying for third party storage unless you're spending someone else's money.

I have so many terabytes of stuff though. Some of it needs to be backed upa and some of it needs to be archived because I probably won't need it anymore, but I might. I dunno what media is the best for doing that. I hate optical, nobody uses tape, but I can see digging out some hard drives in a few years and having them not spin up or something like that. So I dunno...

you know what still works? set up a tracker pointing to "wild crazy porn xxx.rar" and encrypt everything and people will make your backups for you via bittorrent.

Welcome back bella.

IG - why should I pay for another computer when work will pay for Mozy?

That probably falls into the "spending someone else's money" category -- unless you're one of the people whose take-home pay is directly related to the company's bottom line...

IG - Pre-tax or after-tax. It's an interesting conversation.

That depends on how creative you want to get with Schedule C, doesn't it.
I hear that the nice folks from the IRS are so very kind and friendly when they show up for an audit.

Yeah, we got caught in the storm on I-278; a handful of dickheads just ahead of us deccided to stop under the 695 overpass, for shelter, and totally shut down traffic.

Not that there was anything wrong with just sitting and watching; that was by far the most powerful hailstorm I've ever seen, although not the scariest; that prize is still held by one that I got stuck in within half a mile of the summit of Katahdin...
