@backblaze It would be great if you had a Web page that listed which metadata you back up and restore and which you don't plan to support.
Any @spamsieve users who are beta testing Postbox 2.5, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
@wklj Hmm. I haven't used the Radar. Just noticed very different temp and precip % numbers. Also maybe a different cutoff for the rain icon.
I like the My-Cast interface, but the actual forecasts never seem to be consistent with TWC, Apple, and others (which tend to agree).
@backblaze Seriously? You don't think a data backup service should save my files' dates and permissions?
@mhenders Doesn't seem like that would change the likelihood of losing the file that you want, and Arq already does its own versioning.
@mhenders Although, it's not actually equivalent, because I might *need* the old version that S3 lost.
@mhenders Yes, I'm using RRS. I set up an e-mail notification for lost files. Does Arc tell you when it's replacing them?
@janineanne Well, ideally I would want 800+GB in S3, so it doesn't even seem cheap.
@reitshamer Looking forward to it.
I love Arq in theory. UI needs more flexibility. S3 is expensive.
@danielpunkass Yeah, CrashPlan doesn't like disconnected drives either, though it's not that bad.
@nonliteral I've been using CrashPlan for 2 years or so. Haven't had that particular problem, though I've seen mentions of it from others.
@danielpunkass Also, not keeping versions longer than 30 days? No mention of what metadata it preserves? Does not inspire confidence.
@danielpunkass I can deal with losing xattrs, but not supporting timestamps or symlinks says to me the developers are incompetent.
I tested nearly all of them at one point and much preferred CrashPlan. Things look good now, but waiting for explanation about this morning.
CrashPlan says "Unable to restore due to a backup archive I/O error." Can't search or browse to restore anything.
@siracusa And, crucially, no iDisk in iCloud.
@mikeash Do you recommend "Code Quality"?
@mikeabdullah Yeah, we need some sort of combination of NSFileHandler and NSStream…
@kcase Nice to see some OmniWeb development.
@morrick Agreed. "X 10.0" never really made sense, anyway: like an ATM machine or AC current.
@danielpunkass But isn't the "X" the problem rather than the "Mac"?
@nriley Cool. I should take some photos of my floppies from that era. I think my oldest copy of BBEdit is on a CD, though.
All of a sudden, people (who don't listen to Hypercritical) are asking me about which toaster to buy.
Word 2011: You're warning me about making a 10K clipboard of plain text available to other applications? Really?
@tbridge Great. Please e-mail email@example.com.
Good to see, I guess, that I'm now receiving more crash reports from Lion than Tiger.
@markaufflick Maybe they just do something really simple and make you break your own cycles, etc.?
@mikeash Yep, sounds to me like compiler-supported -retain and -release.
@dokas Right. What I mean is that you can tell he knows exactly what he wants to do and doesn't plan on remaining a consultant.
