SpreadHello

SpreadHello is a newly created community site for promoting the use / enjoyment of Hello – the Picasa add-on that allows you to publish your photo’s straight to your Blogger blog, or share them with friends / family quickly and easily….

I looks like a great site, and I wish Yogarine the very best of luck with it – I strongly recommend it to you if you are a Picasa or Hello user – try it…… what’s the worst that could happen???

SyncBackSE – A week on from Install

Well, after a week or so of running SyncBackSE at home to backup my PC and Laptop. I have to say that I’m very impressed. The software is an absolute doddle to install and configure, the backups are reliable (as far as I can see anyway….) and the performance hit is non-existant (partly as all the backups run at about 3am when I’m fast asleep!!)

It took me all of 20 minutes to configure about 7 different backups / synch jobs to ensure that I have multiple copies of all my key data – spread across multiple spindles and kept in sync automagically.

I’ve not really tried the advanced options like AES encryption or FTP as everything is on my LAN at the moment – but I may well have a play with it to backup this site each night.

I’d really like a feature to allow me to keep multiple backups – on a weekly or monthly basis, so I backup this site nightly – but the software automatically puts the files in a folder based on date / day of the week / some other criteria I specify and clears down old copies on a schedule I specify as well….. e.g. A folder structure like this:

Backups
······Data
·········Blog
··················1
··················2
··················3
··················etc.
············OfficeDocs
············Website
··················1
··················2
··················3
··················etc.
······Music
······Photos
······Profiles

Now that’d be cool…… you could keep a rolling month or week of backups – and roll back to any given point of time you chose.

On the whole though, for the price, I have to say that I’m extremely impressed.

Update

So I’ve been a bit slack in updating this really….. I guess I should try a bit harder!!

There’s a some good things going on at the moment, work is keeping me moderately busy – but leaving enough time for this too!!

I’ve found a couple of cool tools recently – www.tagcloud.com is nice – if a little slow to use – but maybe that’s just the sucky connection at work….. we shall see!! Thanks to Frank for the link!!

I’m also really liking Google Earth – but it’s a bit CPU hungry on my old 1.7GHz PC at work :-p
