Yep, I didn't like the cloud idea to begin with. I like to keep my stuff with me because I don't want it under someone else's control and I've experienced enough internet outages to not want it stored where I can't get to it.

I have always been wary of storing information somewhere else. It's fine for information that should be shared, and there's certainly a lot of that but people are making big mistakes storing their own sensitive and confidential information anywhere other than local. I realize that some of it is going to be out there anyway because that's how the government and companies do business, but keep it to a minimum.

Marketing had to come up with something new sounding, they already wore out eThis and iThat. It really is like a fashion trend, the guy is right about that too.

Fashion? Nay, pure folly!

The very idea that I'd willingly turn over my digital archive to a 3rd party, essentially turning my personal PCs into nothing but Dum-Dum terminals so I could access someone elses data storage facility to retrieve MY data would seem about as bright as a .010 watt LED.

With HD space still gettin cheaper by the year, why on earth would anyone willingly give up local storage of personal files in favor of using someone elses' HD space eye popping

Yeah, it's time for ol' quasi to invest in an external hard drive. Been doing some kayaking videos and need something bigger than a flash drive for backup as I had been doing with photos and important files, though I think today the videography just came to a screeching halt for awhile.

The only thing I allow on the cloud is my contact list nothing more private than that. I have 3.5 terabytes of hard drive space and still growing. I even turn my computer off at night and have the power for it running through a master switch which is off at night also. I can't understand why people leave their computers on 24/7, it only takes a few minutes to turn it on in the mornings.

This guy kinda looks like Willie Robertson from Duck Commander.

True. Also reminds me of Quasi with more hair and less grey.

I'm actually a couple of years younger than this guy but, yeah, I looked a lot like that about fifteen years ago. My own dad started calling me Grizzly Adams about 30 years ago.
