Imaging and Online Backup for Maximum Protection against Data Loss

One of the best features added in Vista and now in Windows 7 is system imaging. System imaging is the best way to back any computer system. I have backed my system up using this utility and I'm lucky to have not had to restore yet. I've used other products with great success in the past especially when upgrading to larger hard disk drives.

The downside to imaging is that it does take some time and usually requires a second or external hard drive. You can also image to DVD's but this will require several disks. I just upgraded from Office 2007 to 2010 and make a system image in case something goes wrong. By the way it didn't and I really like the new office. Outlook is a lot quicker.
The issue I have with external USB drives is as a tech I tend to carry them around with me from time to time and they do not seem to last very long. If you have a fire, flood or other disaster at your home or business your external hard drive will probably be lost with your computer along with external hard drive and the data on it.
With an online backup service your data is encrypted and then copied off-site to a remote location preferably a data center. The Fast PC Networks online systems is located in four data centers through out the country. Our service also gives you the option to have your data replicated to a second data center. Where and the quality of the facility where your data is stored should also be taken into consideration. Data Center storage facilities should have multiple levels of security and properly trained staffing. Most hacking occurs because of social engineering. Data centers usually have redundant network connections. We consider backups a business critical application. FastPCNet also deploys its backkup servers in clusters, three per data center so if we have to perform upgrades or maintenance we still have two servers online to balance the load.
To protect your machine you should image it every 3-6 months or when you make major changes to the system like installing new software, then use an online backup service to save your machine image and the files you change on a regular basis.

Saudi Gazette - New oil fields saved for future generations: King

Saudi Gazette - New oil fields saved for future generations: King
Is this their way of saying it's over? Has Saudi Arabia peaked? Saudi Arabia is not that big a country, how much oil can possibly be left? How much conventional versus unconventional oil do they have left? Are we starting to really see peak oil?

So now with all the Apple iPhone 4 problems will the Stock Price rise if Steve Jobs retires or dies?

Oh how things can quickly turn. Do you remember when Apples stock dipped when Steve Jobs was sick?
Software glitches, design flaws and doors being kicked in. Steve's arrogant comments about how end users hold the iPhone and his AT&T bashing. I can't look at the news and not see Apple bashing.
Steve - Just fall on the sword, admit your wrong and fix the problems. Try to do what can be done to make it up to the endusers like giving everybody $50 in iTunes or something. Make Apple cool again!

4.01 seems like less drops, and the bars look weird

I added the update and made two call inside my home office. Was on quick for one and the 2nd call was long distance and dropped after two minutes. Called back while outside and held call. Walked into office and was able to complete a six minute phone call. This is so sad that I'm happy to stay on the phone and not have a call drop. Put the ego's aside and please fix the problems.

New Cap for Macondo Delayed 24-48 hours pending pressure tests, Matt Simmons Please be wrong

I guess we will finally find out if BP fractured the well bore. High pressure will mean the well bore is probably intact. Low pressure will mean that there are leaks which will complicate stopping the blowout once and for all. I give Matt Simmons credit, he was the first to say this is much bigger than BP is reporting. He is also saying that BP fractured the sea floor possibly causing several other leaks which may be leaking a lot more oil that the riser pipe that we are being shown on the Internet. This is one time I hope that Matt is wrong, but he said the spill was bigger and that the containment efforts tried would fail which they all have so far.
Matt Simmons, you are a very smart man. I just wish you could be wrong this time. I know you say the relief wells only have a 0%-5% chance of working. It would be nice if your wrong just this once. And yes, "This is Peak Oil."

Fun Day at the Mall but not at the Apple store

I droped by the Verizon Kiosk and saw the new Droid X. It is thin and the screen looks amazing. It will be available this Thursday and it looks like they will go fast. Even in this prolonged recession all the premium smart phones seem to be doing really well. The market still has a bunch of stinkers.
I dropped by the Apple Store, Iphone 4's are not to be found unless you have reservation. It will probably be that way for another month or so. I asked about all the dropped calls which has been getting out of hand for me the last couple of weeks. I now start my phone conversations with a warning that I'm on an Apple Iphone and the call may drop. The nice young lady in the Apple store told me to turn off 3g. I walked out of the store.

What makes a data center Tier4?

To get to Tier4 status a dual power design is required with two primary feeds. If a data center is a true Tier4 it will have S+S or 2(n+1) design. If a data center is using an ATS which is a single point of failure then they are not Tier4 or Tier4 designed. The other requirement where a lot of facilities fall short is being in a stand alone building. Tier3 and Tier4 design require the data center be in a stand alone building - not multi tenant.
If your business is looking for public colocation you are only going to find that there is only two Uptime Institute certified facilities in the United States. One is a Tier2 DR facility is Oklahoma and a Tier3 in Virginia. Almost all the Tier3 and Tier4 designed and certified facilities are corporate owned. In my opinion most of the better public colocation facilities are Tier2 with Tier3 design. This is not a bad thing, a facility might be stuck at Tier2 because of being in a multi tenant building but has Tier3 design and infrastructure. The Uptime Institute certification only covers inside the four wall of the data center. The Tier certification does not take into account the outside of the building and how infrastructure is brought into the building or other variables in the area of the facility.

The Update to the Chase Bank app for Iphone is awesome!

I can now use the camera on my Iphone to make deposits to my chase accounts. No more trips to the bank or ATM for deposits. I was happy with their ATM features I'm very happy with their Iphone app. There are so many useless Iphone apps but this one is great. I hope more companies create apps that make life easier for their customers.
