I was hoping, now that UbuntuOne has a (beta) Windows client, that I’d have a good cross-platform cloud spot to save files to.  Well, that’s not working out so far.  the syncing, on BOTH the Windows side AND the Linux side is painfully slow, if it happens at all.  I’ve had to kill the sync daemon on the Linux side to get it to acknowledge that it is indeed not “up-to-date” and download what’s missing.  On the Windows side, it just seems to creep along taking FOREVER to update – even with tweaking the available upload/download speed settings.  As much as I’d like to, I don’t think that I can even blame this on the Windows client.  Another that that I’ve noticed that there seems to be a noticeable slowdown, on both machines, when running the UbuntuOne client.

The other issue is the apparent lack of encryption of the stored data.  I know that’s pretty common for most of the cloud options, but it would be nice to have.

I guess I’ll stick to my personal server folder with SSH access and encryption/decryption locally.

Listening to the reading of the names, and the vast diversity it represents, points out what’s so great about this country.

Payback Time…

A while back, I masterminded the foiling of a coworkers cube.  Now, on his last day here, he’s paid me back.  Not as thorough as the foiling was, but good nonetheless.

I’m not sure if I’m the cause, but he’s been here at Creighton for around 10 years.  I move to the cube next to him, foil his cube while he’s on his honeymoon, and he decides to leave 2 months later…  Nah, it’s just a coincidence.
