    Hi all,

    Gearing up for the season, I am running some site maintenance at the moment, over the next few days there may be some quirks to the site, including the theme changing to a messy one for a while whilst I build out the newer version of the theme and system.

    I am finialising the setup of this years tipping competition as well and will have that open for registrations by the weekend.

    Please bear with me whilst I complete all the work between managing both kids and a busy workload :)

    Hopefully the iOS app is ready soon for you all too.

    Dan

            For the geeks here thought I would show you our current backup server, this lives in my house, it logs in remotely to the Silvertails server and takes a database and file backup every day. Incremental backups every other day.
            image.jpeg
            It's just a raspberry pi and is currently living on top of the outlet upstairs in my room, until I find a better location that won't see it unplugged by the cleaner again grrrrr.
            image.jpeg

            Once the backup is taken a secondary pi gets a backup inside my network and once a month those backups go to another storage location based in the US.

            This way we should never lose much data if we are hacked again.

            The secondary pi is also a staging server for Silvertails but is sllllloooowww.

            Anyway geek stuff

            @globaleagle this is your sort of stuff

                I like how Silvertails fits in the palm of my hand when backed up. If I am ever back in oz and on the NBN Silvertails will be hosted of a cluster of those little machines

                  Amazing technology, just to think I saw the Qantas computer system in about 1980, it was about the size of a basketball court !!

                  My first ever computer, bought in 1982, which ran the accounting side of the business had an amazing, unbelievable 10Mb hard drive.

                  AND, cost about $10k ( which is about $25k in today's money).

                  Awesome little device. Until I got a new QNAP system I used to use one as a media centre.

                  I've since given it to my nephew as an introduction to computing. Budding little programmer there.
