Using Carbonite to Back up Our Blog
Ann earlier told us that she has subscribed to Carbonite, the on-line backup service. She has the Penrose Mornings blog backed up in case any of us crashes. In an article in the April 2 USA Today, Jefferson Graham reviews the use of the Carbonite service. For now, the backup rate is rather slow if someone wants to back up an entire hard drive, but would be much faster for smaller numbers of GBs. I had hoped to sign up for it ($49 per year, unlimited storage, and ability to store any kind of file), but so far Carbonite is just for the unenlightened folks who still use PCs and not for the 5% who have seen the light and use Macs. Since maintaining and preserving our blog is a critical matter, I'm trying to keep us up to date on backing up. I'm looking forward to considering reorganizing and printing options as we go along. For now, we just can't afford to lose what we already have. You can read the article here.
