A reminder to all creative people:

If the RIAA's recent actions have reminded us of anything, it's that you cannot guarantee you have a copy of any of your work unless you have backups of it on your own system.

The 'cloud' is someone else's computer, and there is ample evidence that the someone else who owns that computer does not care at all about the hours of passion you've poured into things you make.

Act accordingly.

This probably means we contributors can get our DVD copies soon!

internetofshit gets it:

"people have been abused via thermostats and smart lights.... but please, buy our flying internet camera."

And no matter how you shield it, anything causing an air influx strong enough to propel itself will be able to yank long hair into it. *fans* these days regardless of safeguards still yank on hair.

Ok, cool. That makes the decision easy - my facebook goes away at the end of the year. A picture of a dog with part of it's face shot off and two instances of that video of the guy recently blowing his head off is quite enough, thanks. Even with only 10 friends, mostly family, that shit comes up. I'm done.

I think I've already had it with blogger. If you're logged in under two different browsers, it freaks out.

FYI and note to self: If you're upgrading your syncthing instance across a large version number (ex: 1.3.3 to 1.9.0) be prepared for the internal database upgrade to take awhile. Like upwards of 10 minutes, so don't freak out that it crashed.
