Basics - You Know About Backups. Now, Do It Online. -

Online backup services are proliferating as users are discovering that
it can cost less than a fancy cup of coffee to keep a second or third
copy of your working data. The number of good services is expanding
rapidly and the marketplace is splitting into niches as the companies
develop features for businesses and home users. Further good news:
prices are dropping and options are multiplying.

The idea is simple. The user installs some software, chooses a schedule
and then makes sure the computer can connect to the Internet at the
right time. The software uploads only new files and any modifications
made since the last backup session. In some cases, it even acts as an
archive and stores former versions in case they're needed later.

A note to all commenters
I have removed the comment box for now. It was just getting very ugly going back and forth. I don't like the ad hominem attacks. I don't appreciate people borrowing other people's names to post insults about someone's supposed sexuality. And I see no reason why I should provide space for people to insult me and my family. I don't have time to patrol through many comments and delete such comments so, as Barack Obama would say, I'm taking a hatchet to the problem instead of a scalpel.

When I get time, I will look for another commenting mechanism that will allow more control, preferably one that has commenters register. 

If any of you know of such a system, please send me a link.

I'm sorry to do this for all you who stick to commenting on issues rather than personal attacks.


9/11 Truth

Pilots for 9/11 Truth is an organization of aviation professionals and pilots throughout the globe who have gathered together for one purpose. We are committed to seeking the truth surrounding the events of the 11th of September 2001. Our main focus concentrates on the four flights, maneuvers performed and the reported pilots. We do not offer theory or point blame at this point in time. However, we are focused on determining the truth of that fateful day based on solid data and facts -- since 9/11/2001 is the catalyst for many of the events shaping our world today -- and the United States Government doesn't seem to be very forthcoming with answers or facts.

Welcome to Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth

We're just regular quasi-intellectual folks, with pseudo-intellectual opinions about a variety of seemingly important things. This blog was born out of a frustration that comes from having something to say, but no way to say it and no one to listen. Thought is relevant... Perspectives are relevant... Ideas are relevant and "we are the ones we've been waiting for".
