To anyone who may be reading this blog, I have decided to make some changes to comments. The changes I have made are:
- You must now be registered and logged in to WordPress.com to comment
- Posts older than 30 days will be locked for new comments
Not many people are here anyway, and I’m tired of deleting tons of spam comments.
Your computer may be working fine right now, but what would happen if your hard drive were to just break, right now? Would you have a backup of all your important data? What if your house burned down and you lost all your local backups?
If you have ever lost data, you know how frustrating it can be (or even devastating, depending on what you lost). No matter how you backup currently, you should always have your most important data backed up somewhere offsite, which is what iDrive is offering for free. If you sign up for the free account, you get 5gb of storage, which is enough space for your most important files. It even stores multiple versions (which don’t count towards your 5gb) so if some of your files corrupt (and get uploaded to your iDrive account) you can recover the old versions.
Sign up for a free iDrive account at this link.
If you like technology but need a community to talk tech with, you should consider joining a forum dedicated to technology. There are a lot of big tech forums already, but a smaller community can be really helpful at times. A new forum has been started by a member of the iFans website and needs more members.
The website is called All Tech Talk. It’s, as I mentioned before, a fairly new forum (it has only been up a few weeks) and it’s growing pretty rapidly.
It has great members and the administrators and moderators actually listen to member feedback, unlike some larger forums I know of.
And it has an arcade! Who doesn’t like playing random games while browsing the web?
You can sign up with the following link:
DISCLAIMER: I am a member of this forum and, to be honest, trying to get referrals, but the forum IS really nice and you should sign up if you’re interested 🙂
Hello to all of my readers.
Just a quick update about my previous website, http://lhamil64.x10hosting.com.
If any of you have this website, or any files/pages from this website bookmarked, please update them to point to this WordPress.com blog. My x10hosting account has been suspended because I no longer use it. There is no way for me to access these files ever again. I think I updated the Programs page to point to other locations for the files, but if not I will be correcting it shortly.
To anyone wondering whether you should sign up for this hosting, I’d say it depends on what you want to do. Definitely read the TOS, because you are not allowed to use this site for file hosting unless it’s directly related to your website. This is what got me suspended, because I left my wordpress install there when I abandoned the site. If you just want a basic website (or even a small blog or forum) this is an OK service. Note however, that if you don’t log in to the forums every 30 days, you account is temporarily suspended until you log in and un-suspend it. You do get warnings before you’re suspended (for this anyway. I was not warned about my permanent suspension).
If you are planning on hosting a large site, I would not recommend this service. You only get 3 MySQL databases, and everything else is limited as well. Although I would recommend not using a free host if you are looking to host a large website.
Thanks for reading,
It’s officially 2011 where I live. What were your favorite moments of 2010? Any plans for 2011?
First off, I would like to say Happy 2010 and a happy start of a new decade. Second, I would like to say sorry for the outage for the past couple days. I’m not sure why this happened but I could not access the site at all, not within my browser nor via ftp.
