€50 plus VAT upgrade is probably too much for me to get an optional ribbon interface. But maybe there will be a sale sometime later :up:.

Developer's Corner / Some talks from CppCon 2017
« on: October 21, 2017, 11:44 AM »
I've been watching some of the talks from this years CppCon on YouTube, and mouser encouraged me to post a few links. There are a lot of interesting videos, and if you are interested in C++ programming, I encourage you to check out their channel for other videos. These are just a few picks I found interesting.

Living Room / Re: For those with a CrashPlan...

There are quite a few aspects to such software that factor in (at least for me). I know CrashPlan used quite a lot of memory (here it's sitting at ~500mb), but as long as it's not getting in my way I can live with that. The same goes for bandwidth and CPU usage, the most important thing really is that I do not notice it's running.

One thing I also want is some kind of "time machine" functionality. I do not want to risk a file being overwritten (either by accident or malware) and some simple backup tool simply duplicating that remotely. Ideally there should be some way to go back to how the file was a week or a month ago. Most of these tools seem to support this somehow.

Then there is the storage question. Many of them promise "unlimited" storage, but have some small print that allows them to weed out anyone who uses more than what they deem "regular use". This is one area where I like SpiderOak's approach -- they offer you a set amount of storage, and then don't have to care how many computers or NAS drives you attempt to backup. On the other hand their tiers are somewhat more expensive than the "unlimited" ones. Also, as mentioned, they sometimes run promotions where you can get an "unlimited" account from them as well, and that is where I got mine. I haven't backed up more than ~120gb currently so I have no idea at what point they might start to question your usage.

I have a license for xplorer2 as well, and use it as my second file manager beside TC :Thmbsup:. It's a shame there is never a discount for the lifetime upgrade protection, or I might have gotten that.
