jerv’s story

After nearly six years of wise-cracking on Answerbag, taking over the Computer and Auto sections, debating politics and religion, and generally doing my thing, I decided it was time to move on, so here I am!

In a former life, I was an Electricians Mate in the US Navy, but much of my time since then has been spent in the manufacturing industry, usually as a machinist.

I like to make snarky remarks and can occasionally get a little wild, but I’m generally a nice guy; I only bite if you are asking to be bitten.

”[T]here are known knowns; there are things we know that we know.
There are known unknowns; that is to say, there are things that we now know we don’t know.
But there are also unknown unknowns – there are things we do not know we don’t know.” – Donald Rumsfeld

We think it is just his hard drive dieing.
I researched some more. Should I get another NexStar3 (external hard drive) to back him up to? I also read I can back up to CD’s or Flash drive but I think that would take a very long time, if I could, like you say, even find all the files he needs to save (program files).

I have a NexStar3 I back up to monthly. I back up my documents file to a flash weekly.

O master, we must hang out, and you must teach me your ways.

Hey there Jerv, do you know the answer to this question?

My wife downloads music via Vuze on her current laptop. Birp.FM only releases their playlists through torrents. So can iPad handle such a program? Thanks.
