I heard it doesn't have a name so death can't find it, it doesn't have a home or people to care for. it's not afraid of anything, men least of all. It's fast and strong like a big wind. It can hear for a hundred miles and see a hundred miles underwater. It can hide in the shadow of a noon sun. It could be right behind you and you wouldn't know it 'til you're dead.

I hope the home button isn't in the middle of the tablet, as has been shown in all the mock ups; it makes sense on the iphone (where the thumb lands innit) but wouldn't on a tablet (on the same principle)

Pulled the trigger on a Kaby Lake MBP 15", LG 4K monitor, and $pent my way into USB-C. Easily converted to the new keyboard and am justifying all the expense because my eyes are so much more happier now with the new monitor.

I've had my new imac i7 27" 512 ssd beast sitting here to my left as I've been reinstalling all software and not pulling the trigger on switching over until I finish a few projects on my current computer (2008 mac pro) while being a bit terrified of the daunting task of moving iTunes and Lightroom catalogs over and maintaining the libraries/catalogs. It looks nice but haven't used it yet! Got the numeric version of the keyboard, I like it.

So: putting all my files in Dropbox, signing up for Dropbox Plus, then using Time Machine to create a local backup of all my files a good way to have all my stuff everywhere and also have a backup that I control? Good idea?

the ghost of markers, Monday, 3 July 2017 18:26 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Maybe something like Backblaze instead of a local backup?

the ghost of markers, Monday, 3 July 2017 18:33 (three weeks ago) Permalink

No local backup means waiting like a day to restore your system if something happens

I've heard a lot of "Dropbox is not a backup" talk but as long as you're making a local backup too..? Seems like it could work. That said afaik Dropbox's "memory" only goes back 30 days so it's only useful as a snapshot of what you've got right now. Backup plans like Crashplan etc give you Time-Machine-like monthly snapshots reaching back as far into the past as you want to go.

You might want to think about whether you need to access, say, all your OS X apps and system files "anywhere"..

illegal economic migration (Tracer Hand), Monday, 3 July 2017 18:43 (three weeks ago) Permalink

i don't trust time machine tbh. too many times it's said "sorry your backup disk is fucked i have to start again". and presumably it's going to be rewritten from the ground up for APFS.

a good minimal strategy is a complete local _clone_ of your entire drive + something in the cloud that you can set and forget for historical archives of your home folder, e.g. backblaze or crashplan.

the clone allows you to get back up and running quickly in the event of drive failure. the archives are archives.

π” π”žπ”’π”¨ (caek), Monday, 3 July 2017 19:49 (three weeks ago) Permalink

in my old mac pro I had a system where the system disk cloned daily to a second drive and all my other disks backed up via Time Machine. I didn't have anything offline though.

Right now I have a 4 drive owc thunderbay attached to this fancy new iMac and currently everything it backing up to Time Machine and I'm trying Backblaze as well, which should take a million years.

I've also transitioned a lot of work into dropbox so I have that layer of security.

I think what I'll do eventually is get another giant external drive and clone the first one. Then I'll feel kinda secure.

dan selzer, Monday, 3 July 2017 22:42 (three weeks ago) Permalink

I've done the full drive backup thing but tbh Time Machine has never failed me. maybe I'm lucky! I've done the clean OS install -> restore from Time Machine thing probably a half dozen times

mh, Tuesday, 4 July 2017 01:05 (three weeks ago) Permalink

I can't believe all you guys are putting your trust in the cloud with these different companies. Very brave!

calstars, Tuesday, 4 July 2017 01:10 (three weeks ago) Permalink

do you mean brave as in data integrity (losing data, reliable backup) or as in data privacy? the latter is a little bit of a concern, the former less so

tbh dropbox is more of a mirroring service than a full backup. I've thrown parts of my home directory on it (documents, config files, text files, things I want to share between computers) but it's more of an availability mechanism than a backup

my workplace now has the full Microsoft Office cloud subscription and we're approved to use OneDrive for saving corporate files, so I'd assume it's passed a zillion auditing checklists. if corporate thinks it's ok for somewhat sensitive data, and they're still as slow-moving as ever, it's pretty much status quo

mh, Tuesday, 4 July 2017 01:21 (three weeks ago) Permalink

our corporate IT overlords have been begging us to move to OneDrive and I've tested it, and maybe would switch if Dropbox wasn't a million times easier. Though I think OneDrive JUST added the ability to use a contextual menu to share a link, as opposed to open the directory up in a browser.

dan selzer, Tuesday, 4 July 2017 02:14 (three weeks ago) Permalink

for sure, even dropbox is changing as they become more corporate. they're dropping the ability to use their service as a generic file share to make it more palatable to copyright/corporate use as it is

mh, Tuesday, 4 July 2017 02:39 (three weeks ago) Permalink

I have a local clone of my mbp and a separate time machine backup. And use backblaze to back up the clone and other separate drives of archive data. I decided a couple of years ago I didn't want to worry about data loss any more.

wtev, Tuesday, 4 July 2017 05:50 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Any random cloud company is more trustworthy than time machine.

π” π”žπ”’π”¨ (caek), Tuesday, 4 July 2017 06:17 (three weeks ago) Permalink

I used a combo of time machine, dropbox, crashplan.

Jeff, Tuesday, 4 July 2017 09:43 (three weeks ago) Permalink

assuming money and bandwidth aren't concerns i would go with local backups + offsite. you never know when a freak fire/electrical incident will fry your hardware

Nhex, Wednesday, 5 July 2017 08:21 (two weeks ago) Permalink

it's going to take a year to backup everything, but I'm liking Backblaze.
