So I kinda, well, chickened out today. I did my entire backup – twice actually, once on my office Drobo, the other on my home Maxtor NAS. As an aside, I’d like to give a special big heartfelt “thank you” to the folks at Norton Security Center who found a way to protect me by preventing me from finding my NAS on my home network for an hour or so. The helpfulness and security I now bask in is wonderful. Yes, the sarcasm is at an all-time high right now.
Anyhow, I’m still in my awkward Vista stage, and was trying to get a video I captured yesterday for a friend of mine online. Windows Media Player is crashing on me, so I tried using one of the built-in Sony applications to preview the video clip I made. Here’s the error I saw:
Ok, fess up. I’m on candid camera, right? Right?
Ahh, the wonders of PC ownership, ohh how I miss it.
Most of Sony’s machines seem to work quite well with Linux. Perhaps it’s time to give Ubuntu, Fedora, SuSE or CentOS a try….
