comment FireWire external drive for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
You are absolutely right about tape backups. I can't afford them though. The external hard drives will crash every once in a while but they're cheap to replace and have big capacity. Also, Ubuntu will run autofsck on these drives on boot up allowing me to be lazy. My uptime has to be short with weekly reboots but oh well... I'd rather reboot often and know that my backup media is good than not reboot and have a long uptime.

eSata is really awesome! I've read somewhere that it's three times as fast as USB 2. That's probably what I'll use in the future for backups to external hard drives.

comment Notepad++ shortcuts not getting copied to the second computer where I want to replicate my settings
Thanks, I need to build a script to put everything in the right place. Funny thing is when I installed Notepad++ on Windows Server 2008 R2 I checked the "Do not use %APPDATA%" option. I guess this option is useless on later Win versions.
