I recently found a very cool service called Wuala which is a cloud backup/sync solution.  I think it is really cool because it gives you 5GB free storage initially and all files are fully encrypted on your computer before they go to the cloud.  I've been testing it for a while and I think I'm going to give it a try at some of my clients too.  It allows you to share a folder with someone dynamically.  Very cool!  Check it out.www.wuala.com


Recently I suspected I had a problem in my mysql databases on my webserver, so I ran the following command:

mysqlcheck -u root -p'put-your-database-password-here' --all-databases

I got a neat list of databases and tables and messages saying some tables are OK and some not. Notice that I cleverly replaced my database root password with the phrase put-your-database-password-here, so you should replace that with your password if you want to try this.  BTW it seems you can ignore the warnings about client using or not closing tables.

Well I am once again reminded at how useful Terabyte's Image for Windows is.  I upgraded my main computers hard drive and using Image for Windows, I installed the new drive and copied Windows to it, pulled out the old one and voila.  What a nice reliable piece of software. I wish all software were this good.  Love it!  Can't recommend it enough. Buy it and they'll send me $5 woo woo!
