New Home Server

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been in the process of setting up a new home server. The previous one was an old Beige G3 (266MHz) running Mac OS X 10.2 that was starting to show it’s age. The new system is a much more capable B&W G3 (400MHz) running Mac OS X 10.4. Despite […]

So here’s what I’m contemplating: Acronis True Image 8.0 ($39.99) – I’m leaning towards this rather than the infamous Norton Ghost because it supports USB 2.0 PCMCIA cards, something Norton doesn’t. And backing up via USB 1.0 is something nobody […]
