Backup

Hot Dogs sell, even at 10am

So I’m up oddly early after having a few brews at the english pub.
Hey everyone, look like you’re in England in front of the red phone booth, er, telephone kiosk

The happy hour peeps

I get up, and since there’s no TV or coffee, I do some stuff for clients. I’m sure they like getting emails at 4am with updates to their site. I certainly like working at my leisure.

My desktop is a mess, and I realize, hmmm, I haven’t backed up in a while as I put things in their proper places and name files with meaningful names.

I’m sad to see my laptop’s 55.88 GB drive has a mere 1.37 GB left.

This is going to be an issue, as Photoshop sure does like its scratch disk space. I hate the thought of having to separate my stuff from this one place:

  • I have a snapshot or the master files of most everything I’ve worked on over the past 6 years
  • I have 18 gigs of music
  • Every digital photo I’ve taken 5+ gigs
  • Email is well over a gig
  • My site? A paltry 165 MB
  • Every installer for the Mac and PC applications I use most. 2.1 gigs
  • Movies of various things I’ve either made or collected 5 gigs
  • Pilfered sites, grabs of site designs, icons from around the world, fonts galore, and random sound effects
  • and lastly, a boatload (5 gigs) of installed applications, most of which I really do use…

So my firewire drive is chock full as it is, I suppose it’s time to upgrade that and archive properly.

  1. Two new studies show why some people are more attractive for members of the opposite sex than others.
    The University of Florida, Florida State University found that physically attractive people almost instantly attract the attention of the interlocutor, sobesednitsy with them, literally, it is difficult to make eye. This conclusion was reached by a series of psychological experiments, which were determined by the people who believe in sending the first seconds after the acquaintance. Here, a curious feature: single, unmarried experimental preferred to look at the guys, beauty opposite sex, and family, people most often by representatives of their sex.
    The authors believe that this feature developed a behavior as a result of the evolution: a man trying to find a decent pair to acquire offspring. If this is resolved, he wondered potential rivals. Detailed information about this magazine will be published Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.
    In turn, a joint study of the Rockefeller University, Rockefeller University and Duke University, Duke University in North Carolina revealed that women are perceived differently by men smell. During experiments studied the perception of women one of the ingredients of male pheromone-androstenona smell, which is contained in urine or sweat.
    The results were startling: women are part of this repugnant odor, and the other part is very attractive, resembling the smell of vanilla, and the third group have not felt any smell. The authors argue that the reason is that the differences in the receptor responsible for the olfactory system, from different people are different.
    It has long been proven that mammals (including human) odor is one way of attracting the attention of representatives of the opposite sex. A detailed article about the journal Nature will publish.
