From the Electronic Frontier Foundation: How to Enable Advanced Data Protection on iOS, and why you should. I’d like to set this up among all of the devices we have here, but we run a lot of older gear that won’t be covered under this seup—and the idea that if I do enable this, we’ll lose some functionality on things like the Apple TV or this old laptop doesn’t thrill me.
Yesterday, in a bit of cosmic irony, I spent seven hours onsite trying to untangle a client’s backup system (Retrospect, you lovable, miserable bitch, you) while here at the house our seven-year-old DSL router, a SMC Barricade, decided to finally bite it and stop switching packets.
The “Backup Solution”, a Belkin wireless router I got in trade somewhere, is servicable, but I’m now faced with the strange phenomena of downlink hubs that suddenly don’t work anymore. All of this means that the Lockardugan Command Center is wireless until we can get a new router on the case–looks like I’m making a trip to the Office Depot this afternoon.
