Dragons and Data in the Clouds

The Pits: I realized that CrashPlan, the cloud backup service I’ve been using for a few years, is changing their plan structure and sometime between now and February 2018 all of my cloud data will be wiped and I’ll have to start over from scratch. Fortunately, I’ve kept local backups of pretty much all my data, but it’s all spread across numerous drives. It’s going to take awhile to consolidate my files before February.

The Peaks: Weston was excited to finish the LEGO dragon he’d gotten for his birthday.

I got off work early to get the yard mowed and go pick up the boys. I finished reading the eBook of The Ringworld Engineers by Larry Niven. I started this book immediately after finishing Ringworld. I enjoyed the first one more than the sequel, but they were both fun reads.

I also finished listening to the audiobook of But What If We’re Wrong? by Chuck Klosterman. This was a very interesting thought experiment that ranged from music to history to multiverses. The book turned me on to Is Our Universe The Only Universe TED Talk. It’s safe to say that if you don’t enjoy that video, you won’t enjoy this book. Thanks to Jennifer for recommending this book, despite not having read it herself beforehand.
