Light On Light Through

You'll hear a little of this and lot of that on Light On Light Through - my reviews of great television series and movies, my interviews with authors and creative media people and their interviews of me, my media theory and political commentary, thoughts about my favorite cars and food and space travel, discussions of my music, and a few of my readings from my science fiction stories. In the first years, starting in 2006, I put up a new episode at least once a month.  More recently, it became more or less often than once a month, usually less often.  But in the Summer of 2020, I began getting more in the mood to podcast, and on 17 October 2023, I began publishing a new episode of the podcast every Tuesday at 12:01 pm -- a minute after Noon (New York time).  - Paul Levinson

Calling for Backup

The one advantage that old-fashioned paper has over our marvelous computers is that paper doesn't crash.  A sudden, unexpected failure of your computer, with a loss of your data, is the Achilles heel of the digital revolution.  That's why backup is so crucial.

And, of the all the kinds of backup you can use, I'd say online backup is the best - because it's totally independent of your own computer, home, or office.  With your data saved totally off the premises, you have the most amount of security.

IDrive-E offers encrypted, secure online backups for up to 2 GB of your data - for free!   You can't beat that price.  And, of course, if you need more storage, you can easily upgrade to unlimited storaged with a paid, pro account.

I learned the value of data storage online years ago.   I was writing one of my novels, Borrowed Tides, at our cottage on Cape Cod.  I made backups on two disks, and of course I had what I had written on my hard drive, too.   But by the time I got back home, the two disks had fallen into a puddle, and the computer had crashed.  Fortunately, I had uploaded my chapters to an online system...

Yet another good posting!

I have been reading about the online backup industry for a while now.

Online backup is maturing and slowly getting the attention of the general consumer.

One website worth mentioning is the backup review site:

This very informative site, not only posts up to date news and articles from the industry, but also lists about 400 online backup companies and ranks the top 25 on a monthly basis and features a CEO Spotlight page, where senior management people from the industry are interviewed.

I enjoy reading your posts. Keep it up!
