I have mine under the bed, in the loft and in the cupboard. Well you can't be too certain these days.Kory wrote: ↑29 Nov 2017, 1:49pmThis is the way to do it. I have all my music on two 2TB hard drives (one at home, one in the trunk of my car) and an account with Backblaze, which uploads everything to a remote server. If you don't have your data in at least 3 different places, you're tempting fate.threecoffins wrote: ↑26 May 2017, 3:58pmI never have the cash for backup HDs or I would clone my media drive.

But I don't trust myself to be that responsible.threecoffins wrote: ↑26 May 2017, 2:41pmFuck. You'd think archiving would be easier in this day and age. Few people realize how all their optical media is basically on a slow self destruct.Dr. Medulla wrote: ↑26 May 2017, 12:08pmBack in February, my external hd that held all my ripped music, movies, and tv shows went splat. Disheartening, but I still had disc copies of almost everything else, so I got a new drive and started the long process of ripping everything again. I finally finished a couple days ago. Now I'm going thru a process of backing up everything onto 50GB blu-ray discs, so that when this drive eventually fails, it'll be easier to restore. I figure it'll be about 70 of those discs and a good three weeks of burning those. Fun and tears with technology, kids.

So how do you lot find your avatar pics? 125x125 is pretty small. Do you re-size/crop them or is there an easier way to find them without looking at hundreds of Google images to find one small enough? No idea how I did it in the past, think I just lucked out and found ones small enough...
