I really like the on-screen volume display that's available through HotKeys (http://www.qliner.com/hotkeys/), but I haven't managed to map it to the volume control keys on my laptop keyboard - could I do this with AHK?

There was very good posting about Google's strategy on the Signal Vs. Noise blog (which is written by 37 Signals, the people behind BackPack and its associated Web 2.0 apps) - take a look: http://37signals.com/svn/archives2/what_googles_acquisition_of_writely_means.php

Living Room / Re: Partitioning hard drive - any point?
« on: March 15, 2006, 05:12 AM »
Thanks again, Carol.

The drive is 250gb, and I'm using it for:

1) storing my iTunes library and photographs, files that I don't need access to all the time, so have opted to store on the external drive in order to free some space on my laptops internal drive
2) storing my backups - drive images created with TrueImage, and incremental backups made with Genie Backup Manager

What I am thinking of is creating a separate partition for the backups.  From what you've said, I'm uncertain whether there's much point in doing this?

I just read your post about your bad experience, Carol!  That sounded awful...  Glad you recovered, though.  Do you think it is a good idea for me to partition my external drive?  Maybe I needn't bother...

Reawakening this old thread: I want to partition my big external hard drive, so that I can keep my backups separately from other files I am storing on the drive.  Is this a good idea?  And does anyone know if the common disk partitioning tools can do this?  I tried with the free PartitionLogic, but that didn't see the drive (it runs from its own OS, so I probably need to mount the drive somehow). 

I bought Acronis TrueImage last night, and they immediately sent me a coupon for any of their other products.  (The coupon says it gives a 20% discount, but it actually appears to give 40%; it also says I am welcome to pass it on to friends, so if you're looking to buy from them in the next week, drop me a line.)  What I'm wondering is whether it's worth my buying Disk Director for $29.99 - I see it's been listed as the best partitioning software elsewhere on the forum...  Can anybody advise?
