Pictures: These shots where taken about 10 year ago.



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!
