True, but by having a "real time" image of my entire HDD, if the one in my iMac or MacBook Pro ever does crash, I just need to replace it, connect my Time Machine HDD and perform a complete restore of my entire system at the time just before it failed (as opposed to how it was when I last remembered to image my computer) so I effectively pick up right where I left off.

So this Time Machine is an external drive separate from the main HDD? I was assuming (perhaps incorrectly) it was just a data back-up program.

Yes, it backs up to an external HDD on an hour by hour basis. So it effectively does a full backup the first time it runs, then performs incremental backups going forward (deleting the oldest incremental backups when it runs out of space, but with my 1TB HDD, I usually have a few weeks worth of data on hand).

So you not only have a full backup of your entire dataset, you also have reversion backups which I admit have saved my arse when I make a major mistake in a file, so I can just recover an earlier edition and start over or I make a change to a file, save it, and decide I don't like that change, so I can recover the version of the file before I made that change.

Does it require a hard-wire connection, or can you do these incremental updates over a wireless network?

You can perform wireless backups via a HDD connected to an Apple Airport Extreme wireless router/gateway and Apple also offers "Time Capsule" which is an Airport Extreme with a built-in 1TB or 2TB HDD.

I use a 1TB Time Capsule so it can support both of my Macs and provide Internet routing and wireless access point.

Well, it's night-time in my hemisphere right now; I dread what the morning light will reveal. Still, a hot towel does wonders to re-hydrate and wipe off dried dead insects

Yeah, saturate the towel with hot water, lay it on the offending surface for a few minutes...wipe clean. It's a lot easier on the paint & plastic than solvents.

You're getting me in the mood to go outside and clean the Suzuki now, dark or not.

I suppose that's fair revenge for her incinerating Michele's Gallardo.

Thankfully, Marisa does not exist in the same universe as my Suzuki...and the Bandit does not have a catalytic convertor.

I got my new PC today, and it took me a little bit to get everything setup the way I wanted too but I'm happy nonetheless.

at 1600+ Euro's it pretty much used up all my vacation bonus and some of the regular cash flow but it was well worth the money I think.

I just spent the day with my brother seeing Iron Man 2 and then had a round of go-karting. Second place, 12 laps, and a best time of just under 40 seconds round the track at the end of the session. These may have been electric karts, but I had to at least have been doing seventy on the straights.

I haven't posted this before now because it felt a lot like blowing my own trumpet and that embarrassed me somewhat, but I ought to mention it before the time passes: any of the gamers on the forum might be interested to see that I have an article printed in issue 76 of the Retro Gamer magazine. It's only a short puff-piece of a few hundred words, but it's on its own two-page spread and is, hopefully, the first of many.

its the 5 door SEL version i chose the 1.2 6 speed engine because it has a higher top speed than the 5 speed 1.4(not by a lot admittedly just +8 mph!) and the road tax(based on Co 2 output) and insurance group is lower

Well since he had the sense to not buy that "horrid little BlueMotion" model, I'll allow him stops to fill his car's tank (and empty his own, if necessary).

53 mpg combined average mileage on a 9.9 imp gallon (45Ltr) tank = about 524 miles range though mileage may vary according to driving conditions, so in theory i'd be 100 miles short but Hammond managed it in a VW which shouldn't have made it, so maybe it is possible !

ahahaha~ eh!? I graduated high school how the hell did that happen?

I'm actually a hardcore otaku who likes maids more than having three meals in a day and I only read books related to maids. Also, I only visit maid cafes. Of course I also collect maid figurines, I play games which feature maids and it turns me on so much that I'll wear the maid uniforms and jump in joy.

Yeah, for such an important document, you'd expect it to hold more of a presence, but nope. Just a piece of paper you can put into a little book-like thing, or maybe frame it. I was really disappointed with mine. Not to diminish the feeling though. Congratulations. Graduating is a big step.

All packed and ready to fly out to San Francisco tomorrow... need to go and make sure a mate actually puts in a showing at his own wedding, preferably sober and with his pants on the right way around. Also should be meeting up with a longtime mate from dA as well which should be cool.

The hotel we're at apparently has wifi but I'll be browsing iPhone only, if at all... which makes forum replying a pain in the arse. Failing that I'll be back in a week to defend my own, Jethro and Monty's honor

Would have liked to spend a bit longer away and explore SF a bit but uni assessment says otherwise. Here's to hoping some of QANTAS' maintinence issued don't come to bite me in the arse.

I gave up after the fourth season, but listening to folks who watched the entire series:

Spoiler:

It appears the "sideways universe" arc was after they were all dead, but that the "Island Adventures" were all real and not some dream/death experience. So they did actually survive the crash.

Like "The X-Files", the producers specifically chose not to answer many of the questions about the "mythology of the show" in the series finale (which is what I figured would happen and why I stopped watching), so for things like the Polar Bear and why The Others wanted Walt's son and such, you're speculation is as valid as anyone else's speculation.

Enjoying the French Open. So far not many upsets, but I'm hoping the next round will shake up the tourney a bit.

Working on getting pictures, 1080p resolution to an iPhone 3G camera isn't all that great.
