Backup your data for free

I ran across this on ScottH’s post today. The Mozy.com gives you 2GB of backup storage for free.


Currently, I use the free SyncBack utility to backup the stuff to an extra hard-drive on the local machine. I’ve thought of using GMail Drive as a remote backup option but then I would have had to muck around with all the syncing. Plus it’s basically a hack with the 10MB and .zip/.exe blocking limitations of GMail.


Mozy on the other hand makes it all a breeze! The initial setup identified all my stuff like IE/Firefox favorites, contacts and email, My Documents, Visual Studio projects, the list goes on. I can also set when it should sync and how much bandwidth it should take etc. Cool!

Double your reading rate

I’m always on the lookout for productivity tips that help me be a better myself.

I used to love Steve Pavlina but most of his posts in the last six months or so have been quite bland.

Enter Scott Young. This article on doubling your reading rate is good. I’m hoping is other stuff is the same.

Aside: Moving to a new house (my very own one!), the baby and some other stuff have been disrupting my usual flow. Hopefully you’ll be hearing more from me again…

Super secret project and the MVP Summit 2007 so far

I just got back from the session by Don and ChrisAn and they did ‘partially’ talk about the super secret project they’ve been working on.


I’ve captured the whole session on video and will have them up once I get it cleared.


The MVP Summit has so far been ‘wicked’. I’ve met some of the biggest legends who have created the world that I live in and pays for me. BillG started off with his keynote, followed by Soma and then Anders took us through all the crazy stuff in C# 3.0 with Don and ChrisAn finishing off what has been a great day.


Tomorrow, I can’t wait to meet ScottGu!
