1-4-2019 is National trivia day in the US.

Did you know that Betty White is older than sliced bread?






She was born in 1921 and sliced bread was not made / sold until 1928.

You are flying, at least not driving, for your holiday?

Looks like some parts of the west could be rough for driving.

If I decide to stay down there for a month or longer, I might consider driving. Even putting the potential bad weather aside, I still have a hard time seeing myself driving 12 hours a day for 3 days. Adding bad weather to that, makes it even less desirable. Even though my car is pretty new, one of my biggest worries would be breaking down in the middle of nowhere.

That said, flying there (door to door) is pretty much an all day adventure, but a less stressful one.

From here flying anywhere is always an all day adventure. Often it involves going in the opposite compass direction to hit a hub.

There is no way I would choose the 12 hour days in a car.

Our departure day starts with alarms going off at 4am. Since I'm rarely asleep before midnight, I may have to try and snooze on the plane.

Don't forget a high filtration mask; some idiot will travel with a cold or the flu.

Something one would wear on the plane?

I've not done it but I have seen people wearing the yellow ones that hook over your ears. The ones like the doctors on TV wear.

I can't image breathing through that thing for a 4 hour flight. My glasses start to steam up after 10 miuntes.

I'm actually thinking of getting a flu shot before leaving.

At my age I get a flu shot every year. I also minimize eating out for Jan and Feb.

Gotta do some work later today. A host where I had a couple of accounts closed suddenly. Thankfully I have full backups.

Backups can be life-savers! I have a couple of stories on backups that saved my job, way back when working for someone else. Very shocking and relieved at the same time.

Shocking story 1) taking a very large file that took months of work, removing parts before and after the spot that needed reworking, modifying it, then choosing "save", rather than "Save As". A split second later, I realized what I had done - overwritten the main file with only a small part. I literally lost my breath and got tunnel vision.

We had a tape backup at that point, thank the stars. It took an hour to restore the original file, and no one even knew what happened. But, without that backup I would have been up that proverbial "creek", without a paddle. And, looking for another job for sure.

I thought I might be only one who ever did that. Heck I might even do it again even though:

Now I make a full copy of the directory before I start.
Do the save as thing as soon as I open the file.
And make sequentially numbered backups after each successful tweak.

Even with all that I'm sure to screw it up again someday.

Getting the flu shot tomorrow. I'm hoping it's not too late because my two boys are both complaining about stomach pains. I've seen first hand how much they eat, and it's a lot - that's my diagnosis.

Besides an external drive I use for standard backup of data files, I've got another option I really like. It's not a new option by any means, but it sure is convenient in the event of a system hard drive crash.

I use a BlacX toaster which fits one standard internal drive into it. Using Acronis, I can "clone" my system's hard drive on to the toaster drive periodically and then just swap out the crash drive with the toaster backup drive.

I do this about once per week, especially if there are any OS updates and/or software updates or installs made. I can add data files to the toaster drive from the data file backup. There might be a couple of issues with a clone backup, depending on your system, but it's pretty much 99% workable. One known issue I recall was with QuickBooks, but it was an easily searchable issue with an easy resolve.
