+ - What is Your Off-site Backup Strategy? 2

Submitted by Giarc
Giarc (1203374) writes "I am rethinking our current backup strategy of the off-site storage of tapes. I have looked into Iron Mountain, but with us being a small/medium sized company I think that is overkill. I was, however, thinking of using a courier service to pick up the nightly backup and drop off the previous night. as well as store archival tapes in their warehouse. Problems I see with this method is that it environment may not be the greatest nor the transport mode. But it is better than the tape sitting on the front seat of my Saturn and on my counter, when I do remember to bring the tape in. What is your off-site strategy?"

+ - Jury awards $220,000 to RIAA in P2P case-> 1

Submitted by Conrad
Conrad (666) writes "The Capitol Records v. Jammie Thomas verdict is in, with a jury finding her liable of willful copyright infringement for all 24 songs. At $9,250 per song, the grand total is $222,000. The RIAA is pleased with the verdict: 'The plaintiffs' legal team spent a few minutes talking to the jury after the verdict was announced, finally emerging from the courthouse to take questions from the media. The first question asked of Gabriel was whether the RIAA would enforce and try to collect the judgment. Gabriel replied that he hadn't had the chance to talk to the client about that yet. He said that the jury did not explain how they arrived at the $9,250 figure, but that they expressed to the legal team that the case was "clear and well-presented." Gabriel also noted the magnitude of the case in response to a question. "We appreciate the opportunity to put out in daylight the facts and evidence collected in this case," he replied. "This does send a message, we hope, that both downloading and distributing music is no joke." When asked if there was an end game in sight for the series of lawsuits, Gabriel said that it was up to the RIAA to decide.'"

The only way to connect is to use a direct IP address. In fact Cox knows it has a problem and if you call their tech support line they specifically acknowledge that customers cannot connect to Google. This seems awfully suspicious... Metered internet access?(!)"
