Trying Out A Potentially Useful Online Back-Up System – Mozy

Now, everyone I know is at least SLIGHTLY bad at backing up their work. Most are really bad. Why? Because backups are boring to do, complicated (as they might require changing DVD’s, tapes or similar) and, well, not something you’d want to spend time doing. Recently there has been a trend to use on-line backups. They have a couple of good sides, and a couple of bad sides. The good sides are, amongst others, that they are easy to use, don’t require any changing of disks/tapes, relatively cheap, and, if you have a speedy internet connection, quick. The bad parts are that you really can’t be sure where your data is stored, what kind of backups THEY are doing on the data, and it is hard to get your data back if your Internet connection is broken, something it might be if your computer is down. A lot can be said about this, but I decided to actually test one on-line service that offers some storage (2GB) for free. The service is Mozy.

At the moment I’m running a back-up of my most important files, and will get back with more information later on…

Oh, and in the interest of full disclosure: If you click the link above and register, I get a little bit of more on-line space because of the referal. If you don’t want that, you can click here instead: Mozy

Diverse Om Hur Du Manipuleras På har två artiklar om manipulation. En helt färsk om hur du luras att handla i butiken, och en äldre där hur telefonförsäljare lurar dig. Inga stora nyheter i någon av dem, men de är läsvärda. Den om butikernas knep för att få dig att handla är måhända lite för grundlig, nästan naiv, men den om telefonförsäljaren tar elegant upp några av grunderna inom manipulationstekniker. Komprimerad och bra läsning.
