comment FileZilla and Putty - Trouble connecting to a remote server
Had this issue. Turned out I was trying to connect to the local IP for SFTP, but using the proper public IP with SSH. That was dumb. I hope my stupidity helps someone, some day.

comment Are USB sticks a good backup medium?
Thunderbolt is a proprietary interface. Only macs can use that. It will never take over from USB.

comment Are USB sticks a good backup medium?
why would USB be gone in ten years? Is there something coming out that replaces it? It seems to have replaced everything else already (e.g. floppy drives, cd drives).

I've actually taken advantage of "flickr" for off-site photo backups. They have 100GB for free. It won't be enough to hold all my images forever, but for now it is ample. I am more concerned with my local backup.

To be brutally honest I generally wait until I have enough to justify filling a new backup, then I write everything to it. So it's one big write, then I never read from it again, hopefully.
