This is why I hate TV. Bone-headed moves from network execs who don’t understand why what they’re doing hurts them in the long run. Of course, there are a few TV shows I love. It’s just TV in general I hate.

Formatting the Drobo for Time Machine Backups |... →
I had a client who ran into the problem of Time Machine not knowing when to start throwing stuff away because Drobo is lying to the system about how much space it has, and therefore Time Machine didn’t know that the drive was getting full. Hence the massive red lights on the drobo, saying that you need to upgrade your storage space. Looks like creating a .sparseimage to back up to is the...

Sirius XM eyes bankruptcy →
I used to really enjoy my Sirius radio in the car, but eventually podcasts and music from my iPod supplanted it, and I dropped it. The one thing I missed was coming across new music in the random play of the station.
