Your Hands Were Made For Punching According To New Study 240 240

They are capable of delicate surgery, creating beautiful works of art, and comforting someone feeling down, but according to a new study your hands evolved to smash someone in the face. From the article: "Human hands evolved so that men could make fists and fight, and not just for manual dexterity, new research finds. The study, published in the Journal of Experimental Biology, adds to a growing body of evidence that humans are among the most aggressive and violent animals on the planet. 'With the notable exception of bonobos, great apes are a relatively aggressive group of mammals,' lead author David Carrier told Discovery News. 'Although some primatologists may argue that chimpanzees are the most aggressive apes, I think the evidence suggests that humans are substantially more violent.''"

My pipe is rather slow, but it's more than fast enough to use move terrabytes of data upstream. Most pipes over here in Europe are big enough for that, same for Asia, don't know what the deal is for the States/Canada/Australia. The thing is, the first full backup of all that data might take a while, but once it's done you only have to worry about new data.

I'm a photographer as well and I use Crashplan (they supported linux) and they're priced similarly (even cheaper I think). The application they provide supports backing up your data to their cloud *AND* other media. The way it works for me is as following:

- Backup to cloud (offsite online backup, new data gets priority)
- Backup to local NAS (onsite backup)
- Weekly backup to portable drive (offsite offline backup)

All with one application.
