Exercise: I waked a couple of miles this morning. I usually take Monday and Tuesday off but this week will be a little different.

Weather: It is cooling off a little here and other places too(places I might go next) and my wheels are itching to roll 🙂 So it won’t be long till I move to my winter areas ….. 🙂

I am lazy today

I am not posting any photos today, I am just being lazy as can be!

I walked about 2 miles this morning, just enough to say I walked. Carol that I have walked with left this morning so it is just me now for exercise.

I did the Big fall Windows 10 update yesterday and everything seems to have went well ….. so far!

I talked about trying Bitwarden password manager a while back and I have decided to stay with Lastpass, it is pretty refined. However if Lastpass act up or it gets to costly I will move too Bitwarden, it is a pretty fair password manager.

Exercise: Carol and I walked 2.8 miles this morning.

Backup Files: Yesterday I took a ride into the city to pick up my mail from the post-office and stopped by Walmart on my way out and brought a 256 gig USB stick to have a second backup for my photos. The stick is the older USB 2 and it took me about 8 hours to copy 160 Gigs of photos to it! I was thinking well all this ain’t worth the time but than I thought this is over 10 years of photos …. so a few hours to backup ain’t that bad. Still life would be better if the stick was a USB 3 but that won’t be happening at the cost they are now.

After buying a new computer a couple years ago with only a 256 gig hard drive I have kept only one copy of my photos on a backup drive because there is not room for them on the computer. And at any rate I decided I should have at least two copies of all photos so I now have them on a backup hard drive and the USB stick. If I keep both the hard drive and the USB stick in sync it should not be too time consuming to keep double copies.

I would like to back up online too somewhere but that could be costly and time consuming. I would have to find a place where I could upload 160 gig pretty fast and that may not be easy. Most places with a nice high speed connection won’t let you walk in and help yourself. Plus I would have to have a place I could trust to upload to and that would not be easy either. After those two things there would be cost …. So the online thing is not happening just now!
