Backup Your Macintosh

Backup Your Macintosh

The Sitening blog has a tutorial on how to backup your Mac intelligently. It’s well considered and goes through steps, what to expect, and some of the tricks you might encounter along the way.

Last week Jon wrote about the horrifying experience everyone eventually has to deal with – data loss. His wife’s hard drive failed – and without a current backup to rely upon – he went through two data recovery companies and two thousand dollars to retrieve 80 gigs of home movies, pictures, and a career’s worth of graphic design files.

My stomach turned just a little when I read this, because I’m not sure the last backup I took. After reading this through, I’m surely going to implement a better backup regimen, and I’ll use this guide to do it.

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
