River stander

Here’s LRN2 in a river again.  This time, he’s standing.  Great Art once again taken at Calaveras Big Trees State Park and part of my famous Camping and Vacation series.

Another day.  Got a few things done at work, but mostly went to meetings.  Tuesdays are like that.  So I guess that’s the same thing as working, no?

I received my new SATA drive enclosure from Amazon today.  Got the old Terabyte drive from Old Larry installed in it in just a few minutes and got it formatted and set up on my new router in short order.  Now I’m trying to get Time Machine to talk to it so I don’t have to plug the machine into my 500GB external drive up in the office to make it back up.  Success so far is limited, but I still expect to prevail.  We’ll see.

Update a few minutes later – I’m trying for the third time, and I think this one is going to work.  Had to create a sparse bundle with a certain name and then copy it over to the server.  So far, it’s gotten much farther than before.  Keep your fingers crossed, Loyal Readers!

Anyway.  It’s been another quiet evening.  LRN4 is on the phone getting help with one of our friends who is in the hospital and not doing well.  LRN2 is at Young Men.  And I’m fiddling around with computers, as usual.

Update a few more minutes later – It’s working!  I’m not sure my sparse bundle correctly limits the amount of space it will take up, but we’ll see.  I’m cautiously optimistic.  Sure is going slowly, though.  Which is to be expected, since I’m doing it wirelessly.  Only have to copy 260 GB of data, which corresponds to 1.3 million files.  What do I have in all those files?  I’ll let it run all night, and if it doesn’t finish, I’ll interrupt it and let it finish tomorrow night.  What could possibly go wrong?

Anyway.  Time for dessert.  I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this shocking Muppet violence news: Elmo attack!  Key information – Elmo won.

See you tomorrow.
