I use something like this as part of my backup DATE=$(date +%C%y%m%d%H%M)
rsync --del --backup --backup-dir=../changedfiles_$DATE
The whole backup also goes to S3 glacier.
As an added step - I don't delete pictures from my camera unless they match the checksum of files in the _backup_ - not the original copy (via a script).
That way, once they're first copied from the camera, a single failure in the original, PC copy or backup copy will all result in the camera version remaining and I can check what has gone wrong.
I've wondered whether I should have a separate profile for each social site as a way to isolate them.
I turn off 3rd party cookies, but I heard that there was an exclusion for sites that you had logged into and received cookies from.
Meaning, 3rd-party ad site could not send you cookies, but Facebook still could if you'd signed in to it earlier.
More drastic isolation of browser instances is another option (I've wondered about sandboxie but not tried it).
But why doesn't Android sandbox apps in a way that the app is unaware of? Just present all apps with an empty contact list, a fake GPS location, an empty drive, etc and the user grants permissions to substitute the real ones as needed. That way, all apps could be installed and you'd get a popup such as "this app wants your location" in a similar way to IOS, only this way the app would keep working if you said no.
There's a webcam mounted inside the box near the window if anyone want's to check out the view (the pile of boxes placed there to represent the one's he's said to have placed there to rest the rifle on).
that would probably take too many volts of time
Light-years of time.
Maybe even parsecs.
the concept of instantaneous control with the ansible
Fun fact: there is an anagram of 'ansible' that's connected to much of the discussion here.
Personally, I love the idea of autonomous vehicles, but what about privacy?
Well, one advantage of self-driving cars is that they can be fitted with curtains...
For the scenario you describe, Dropbox, at least, allows restoring of deleted files for a while after, so you'd have to both delete your files and then lose your Dropbox account to lose everything.
I don't rely on anything like this myself, BTW, incremental encrypted DAR files stored in Amazon Glacier is my current offline storage (as well as encrypted local backups).
Keep at least one local backup.
And that's actually one big strength of services like Dropbox and Box. To have automatically synced local backups, all you need to do is install the client on more than one computer!
So even if their servers vanish, you're left with multiple local up-to-date copies.
And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll.
