This is a bit of a blog. Testing Windows 7 RC on the home network of a Dell workstation and a Dell laptop. Backup function doesn't work well. Hangs at 7% on the shadow copy but everything else its great. Much better than Vista. Creates an image perfectly but would like to do incremental changes.
Plan on getting a NAS in a RAID 1 configuration for home to backup the hoard of movies I'm collecting in digital format. I'm filling up harddrives pretty fast and want some redundancy so I don't lose the files.
Just got a magic jack as I live in the boonies where cell phone reception isn't in windy weather, snowy weather, one side of the house or the other side of the house. Magic jack works great. If you don't want a hardwire phone and don't have cable this is the way to go. Our internet comes into the house wireless, now the phone is dependable and wireless too.
