It's Deceased!

It’s not sycin’! It’s passed on! This router is no more! It has ceased to be! It’s expired and gone to meet it’s maker! It’s a doorstop! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! If you hadn’t nailed it to the shelf it’d be propping open the door! It’s routing tables are now ‘istory! It’s a chunk of metal!

On recent duplicate file scan I discovered that I’m not actually using it as backup device, it’s simply become add-on storage (and lots of it!). I clearly need to backup the data on that as well! You ought to do a scan yourself, you might find you have exactly the same problem!… Continue reading »
