Right, so Janaqi felt some tremors. His eyeballs dialate–no, hang on, eyeballs don’t dilate–er, I mean, his PUPILS dilate, yes, yes indeed, as he felt a slight shift in the ground. Earthquake! “Nooooooooo,” he yells softly, yes softly indeed… “nononoNONONONononONOnONonoonoNonONOnoOOOOO,” a BIT louder now… “This can’t be happening!” Janaqi realizes that he hasn’t backed up his work in about a week! A week! Oh crummazooki!” He’s absolutely sure that there can be only one answer. His quivering left hand–yes, he’s a left-hander–gripped the HP mouse–”RIIING!”
Whoa. Janaqi is in sweat. It’s 5.30am. He had backed up his files–shoot, go back to sleep man, no… get a drink, a nice glass of water, and DON’T stumble over Bogerozon. Bogie whined for attention as he followed his master who was fumbling in the dark with his glowing boxers towards the kitchen sink.
Janaqi closed his eyes as he just SAT there. So good to have downloaded Cygwin. So good to have set the Windows environment variable to the
/bin directory. Put a lil script that calls
rsync in the
/bin directory to synchronise the project folders with the off-site backup file server, and a Task Scheduler-hooked NT command prompt shell that calls this bash script every night. Thank God for Andrew Tridgell & the Samba team, AND for Chris Faylor and the Cygwin devs - oh yeah, thank God, oh yeah. Praise You, Lord!
Man, the glass of water tastes good at 5.40am. So good.
Just sits there.
Waiting for PC Fair.
