Off site backups

September 19, 2007

I though maybe a serious post.  I was recently quoted £5,000 for offsite storage of backup media i.e. a couple of tapes.  I asked how much it was to retrieve it on demand – answer “well, that would depend”.  What is wrong the a bank safety deposit box, is it not secure enough?  ” I don’t think banks have fire suppression”   Me: “I don’t think this is a good deal” 

Small business get guys like this calling all the time, they don’t have a clue about SME business requirements.  What about an offer that suit our budget?  I love offsite storage, but I have not yet heard of one offer that has been properly positioned.  Have you?

14 mile run – happy days

September 19, 2007

So, managed a 14 mile run without major knee trouble.  Big curry to celebrate!  Thank the lord for Physio!

Still here – and nursing my knee!

I am still training for Berlin.  I have been sulking whilst in physio trying to fix my knee.  At last it seems to be on the mend – touch-wood.  I will do a 13 mile run on Thursday and that will be the longest run before the marathon!  Om another note, I am really happy about my web products, they are getting really good feedback from users and one is growing in Google SERPS as we had hoped – which is really great news for my non-profit!
