Mozy - 2GB Free Online Backup

Mozy Backup LogoI came across Mozy a few months ago, but their release of a Mac OS X version of their software caught my eye.

Mozy.com will automatically backup whatever files you select on a regular basis. They are offering 2GB for free, so you can try out the service without making a big committment. They do ask for some demographic information in order to receive the free space.

Unlimited backup space is available for around $5 per month.

With all the different options available, there really is no reason you shouldn't ne backing up your files. Mozy provides yet another "set it and forget it" option.

If you would like assistance setting up Mozy on your computer, drop me an email at techiq@welchwrite.com or call me at 818-601-0051 and we can set up an appointment for an on-site visit.

Check out http://www.MyOtherDrive.com for online storage. Their online backup is industrial strength including unattended backup operation and 128-bit encryption.

Their file sharing is likely the most advanced on the Internet. They support both public and private file sharing. Their private sharing allows users to control who can view their shared files. That prevents shared personal photos and videos from leaking out on the Internet.

Recently, they added a feature that I believe no other file sharing site has - the ability to move and copy files between accounts. The work is all done on the backend, saving precious bandwidth, and speedy as there is no upload or download required.

Onion Pi makes your web traffic anonymous via Open Electronics

Hmmm, might be an easy (and relatively cheap) way to play around with Tor and learn a bit more about this anonymizing service. -- Douglas Adafruit’s Onion Pi is a Tor proxy that makes your web traffic anonymous, allowing you to use the internet free of snoopers and any kind of surveillance. Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience. Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.

How to Build a Raspberry Pi-Powered Digital Photo Frame via Tom's Hardware

A digital photo frame is a small screen that can sit on your desk in your office or in your kitchen displaying your favorite pictures, changing at regular intervals. The first commercial digital photo frame was introduced in the 1990s shortly after the digital camera. Digital photo frames made a comeback in popularity during 2020, perhaps because people were staying at home more. In this tutorial, we’ll turn our Raspberry Pi into a digital photo frame using MagicMirror and the GooglePhotos module. Please note, we will skip installation of the 2-way mirror in the original Magic Mirror project. Consider this project, “Magic Mirror, without the mirror.” Read How to Build a Raspberry Pi-Powered Digital Photo Frame via Tom's Hardware An interesting link found among my daily reading
