Doing a Manual Backup Automatically, Part IV

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

Even though I have a backup drive on my PC, and it backups files every so often, I enjoy having a second backup copy, what I call a manual backup or mirror of my important work files.

Doing a Manual Backup Automatically, Part III

Even with the automation the DOS prompt and robocopy bring to the file duplication process, it would stil be nice if the computer performed that task for you, automatically and on a schedule. In Windows, that chore falls to the Task Scheduler program.

Apple’s Fusion Drive

Filed under: News — admin @ 2:44 pm

Beyond the iPad mini, today Apple announced a new hybrid SSD and HDD called the Fusion drive. Apparently it uses basic Hard Disk drive (HDD) technology bolstered with Solid State drive (SSD) technology. Don’t know how that would work.

Based on my knowledge (and personal experience in) computer history, it sounds like a fad. It’s seems like a half-step between traditional hard drives and the SSDs of tomorrow.

Other famous half-steps:

• Expanded Memory in DOS.

• Stacker and Double Space to expand hard drive storage

• TSRs or memory-resident programs

Oh, the list goes on.

Backup! It’s so important! I’ve written about it lots. But recently I received an email question, “How can I backup my stuff to a thumb drive?” It’s a decent question.

Google Gone?

Filed under: News — admin @ 5:06 pm

The article says that Google may disappear in a few years. Poppycock. But one thing worth picking up, is that ad revenue from mobile devices is increasing. As I’ve long predicted, there will be a massive shift from desktop computers to mobile devices over the next few years. So in five years, Google may not be gone, but a majority of people will be using it on tablets and cell phones, not computers.


My Office 2012

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

In 2002 I divorced and moved out of my house. The new house needed an office, and the home I finally bought featured a single-car garage that had been converted into an office for the previous owner. Perfect.
