re: Backing up my machines - Korkstand

Typically, a significant amount of "your data" literally hides in a variety of places...[/quote]Yeah, especially with SSDs becoming more common and people use HDDs for extra storage.

re: Backing up my machines - Korkstand
It's tough to beat the convenience of something like [link=(http://www.code42.com/crashplan/)]Crashplan[/link], unlimited backup for $60/year (or $150/year for multiple computers). Or you can use it for free to backup locally computer to computer with no cloud storage. ...

[quote]Like I said, this is the lifestyle choice that I'm comfortable with. It works for my situation. I'm not asking or trying to convince people to live this way. I choose it based on principle. [/quote]Do your principles include not fricking over people you don't even know? Because that's what you...

[quote]Big Scrub TX[/quote]I'm sorry if I've come across as a dick or like I'm giving you shite. I didn't mean it, if so. I just wanted to point out that, while some of your complaints might actually be bugs, most of them seem to be either nitpicks or you simply being averse to change itself rather t...

[quote]Ever since the update, that is hit or miss (mostly miss). I now usually have to manually get out the phone and make several attempts to get it started...oftentimes having to force stop the app. This is one of the reasons I waited so long to install the update...I had more than one friend tell...

[quote]Well, they have a lot of those. I'm assuming you know way more about coding then my zero, but it seems hard for me to believe that binary options that are essentially aesthetic add that much complexity.[/quote]I'm not a pro by any means, but I know a bit. But here is a quick rundown on option...

re: Lollipop frustration - Korkstand
[quote]Admittedly, it wasn't a message notification...it was a "lesser" notification having to do with an app or something.[/quote]Ah, well, I guess that's possible if there was no private information. But that just goes to show that even such a mild level of granularity can result in unexpected beh...

[quote]He said they were absurd because it sounds weird to him that it doesn't exist since he has had it on iOS since forever.

[quote]That's what I assumed...until I dismissed one today.[/quote]I just tried it and I could not dismiss a notification banner with hidden content. Are you sure the lock icon was locked?

[quote]I'm fine with subtle, small notification icons on the lockscreen alert bar at the top, but that's about it. That's actually how it used to be.

re: Lollipop frustration - Korkstand
[quote]I used exchange on iOS for 6 years. It is integrated into the native e-mail app similarly. Unless things have changed, you can choose notification sounds by email account, and turn alerts on or off (or toggle badge/banner). Maybe that's why I find the complaining so absurd, since I've never h...
