I hear this all the time – my backups are taking too long (alternative – my backups are too slow). Most of the time, the backups take too long because of the massive amounts of data the people back up. Why are we backing up so much data now? Well, it’s because we store more – and one of the reason we can store so much more data is because storage is cheap.
I’ve always been the type of person whose mind just refuses to settle down. It’s always going, thinking, planning, imagining. I think that’s why I’m addicted to lists….I think of all this stuff to do and in my head it’s awesome…but if it doesn’t make it to paper it never happens because I’m always thinking and planning. Infinite loop. I started meditating a few months ago, and I’m getting better at calming my mind, about
How is the history of the Native nations taught to us in America? I think people are more informed on the origin of their Indian sport mascots than they are on the history of this country. This is via Indian Country Today. Be sure to go to their site to get all the details to this list: Columbus NEVER landed in the Upper 48—Ever Basically Everything About Pocahontas The First Thanksgiving What is a Redskin?
We all talk about backups. We all know we are supposed to have backups. But what are backups? Here’s my definition, from experience and talking to lots of y’all: Backups: Copying the data created and captured by applications and devices to a different location, so that it can be restored in the case something happens to the original copy of the data. So backups are pretty easy right? All you need to do make a copy
I’m writing a blog post right now, and totally jamming to a concert on AXS – All My Friends: Celebrating the Songs and Voice of Gregg Allman. Man this show is amazing, you need to check it out. Perfect for a cold dreary Sunday morning – jamming out, drinking coffee, cuddling with Fred the Dog, and writing. If I’m working and plowing through things, Rush is my go-to music, and I’ve also been going to
My daughter Brianna asked me this morning what is the first story I didn’t want to leave. She blogged about it, and challenged me to do the same. And I’m sitting here trying to get started – but I don’t want to feel the feels. Darn kids. My first stories were books. Back in the olden days, we had movies, but we had to wait for them to come on TV once a year, we didn’t
MTV featured four up and coming Native artists in a show called Rebel Music. You can only watch it on Facebook, go check it out here. The four artists also have a new single that is on this site. A little frustrating that both of the videos are not embedable. What I love about these videos is the reference to 7th generation. My children are 7th generation from removal. I love that these kids are
I originally posted this on the Dell Tech Center, but decided it to re-blog it here, freshen up the content a little, and use it as the base for some other technical backup and recovery blog posts I’d like to write this month. I get asked this question a lot. What is AppAssure? Since I won’t be at the Dell User Forum this year, I thought I’d write out what I usually tell people
I’ve been “doing” social media for large companies for around seven years now. Five years ago, I wrote this post: “Is ROI an evil MBA term? More on the ROI of blogging“. Man I had some good ideas on how to measure the ROI of blogging in that post! A key theme I talked about (that I believe is still very valid) was if our organizational resources are more and more human (vs machines, objects, etc.),
Today is Veteran’s Day in the US, it’s called Remembrance Day in other countries. Please forgive me for this post, it’s not the typical thank you for your service post. It’s more: let’s remember that we send our young people into combat to do some really hard things; let’s make sure they come home, and make sure we support them with everything then need when they get back safely. I always remember my Uncle, Robert Leo
