+ - Best Backup Solution For OS X?

Submitted by SpartanVII
SpartanVII (838669) writes "I purchased a Mac roughly two years ago and have made the switch with a fair amount of ease. However, one thing that has troubled me is how best to backup my important data to an external hard drive. Right now I have rigged up an Automator workflow that runs every night, but I have also seen software options like SuperDuper and Knox. Since the Automator workflow lacks much of the flexibility and features available with these apps, I am ready to try something else. What app have you come across that provides the best backup solution?"

+ - NASA plans Permanent Station on Moon after 2020

Submitted by ArieKremen
ArieKremen (733795) writes "The New York Times reports NASA's deputy administrator, Shana Dale, saying, that the United States would develop rockets and spacecraft to get people to the Moon and establish a rudimentary base, to be started soon after astronauts return there around 2020. NASA officials said the agency envisioned a base at one of the lunar poles, to take advantage of the near-constant sunlight for solar-power generation, and giving it an "open architecture" design to which others can add the capabilities they want.
According to this time frame, most of us are likely to be around to see Sci-Fi turn fact."

Submitted by indigest
indigest (974861) writes "NASA announced plans today to build a permanent base on the moon by 2024. The tentative plans are to build the base on one of the moon's poles, which constantly receive light from the sun and have less daily temperature fluctuation. The base would then be used as a launching site for future space explorations."

moore.dustin writes "The two companies look to be a collision course that could have far reaching effects that shape of Internet over the years. Will Web 2.0 also have its important legal battles like the Napster case years ago?

From the article:
Yet, as lawyers prepare for battle, they do so on uncertain legal ground. The legislation at the heart of the debate, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, was written years before social networking sites such as MySpace even existed.

That fact has injected considerable uncertainty into the matter, according to copyright experts, and helps explain why lawyers from both sides are proclaiming that the DMCA, as it is known, is on their side."

PsychoKiller (20824) writes "Hans Reiser has pleaded not guilty. From the SFGate website: In an unusual move, the computer programmer invoked his right to have a preliminary hearing within 10 days. Judge Trina Thompson Stanley scheduled the hearing for Dec. 11, after which Judge Julie Conger will decide whether there is enough evidence to hold Reiser over for trial."

If builders built buildings the way programmers wrote programs, then the first woodpecker to come along would destroy civilization.
