  2. Re: I could not believe this when I read this on the Microsoft site!

    Think about this -- the audience is store employees. Stores that sell brand-new stuff, and with every new boatload that gets stocked on the shelves, the employees will be the ones that will have to...

    [ubuntu] Re: Best Backup method

    I've been happy using rsnapshot for several years now. I run it on an Ubuntu box, and use it to pull from a Windows share on my "server".
