NAS2 automatically backs up NAS1.
NAS3 backs up only this year's images from NAS2.

Re: Raymond Briggs make me sick!

It was a poor attempt at a cash-in on a classic.
Badly animated, jerky not flowing, using his characters in a poor story.

Re: Back up to OMD E-M5?

My OM-D E-M5 backup is a second E-M5.

And the backup to both of those is an XZ-1.
It can use the same electronic remote and the same flash as its bigger brothers.

Re: Hi from deepest Cornwall

Hi Steve
We're considering moving west [Roche/Lanivet] :)

At the moment, 15 months after a car accident, I can't lift or use the 1D bodies.

Re: Government funding of under age sex vs. Savile

180 degree changes = balance.
Shouting matches between opposing points of view = balance.
