piranha: red origami crane (Default)

well, that was totally painless. a couple of days ago i bought tiger and a 300GB drive, yesterday i backed up drynwyn, and today i upgraded the system. the only thing that didn't work right away was ssh -- for some reason the upgrade changed the settings, and hosed the hosts file.

if only every upgrade were so easy.

i am happy we have a large backup drive now. it's a maxtor one-touch II with both USB and firewire interface, so it'll work on all of our systems. after the initial full backups i'll probably leave it connected to aegis, and run daily changed-files backups via rsync.

and it has a blue light. blue! it looks way cool at night when the lights are out. :)

One of my Seagate external drives has a blue light (the other two have amber ones), but I've got them all so full of video-footage-in-need-of-editing that there's not really any room for backups as well.
