CrashPlan Update

Isn't Schoolhouse Rock the BEST????  I Googled images for "Hooray" and this scene from the episode on "Interjections" appeared.

Yesterday we had success! Paul and I did a couple more tweaks with our respective firewalls, and after dinnertime, the grey lights turned green on our CrashPlan GUIs!

This point-to-point uploading is going much much faster than uploading to CrashPlan Central (i.e., "The Cloud"). Paul's machine to mine = 4.1 GB in about 12 hours, my machine to his = 1.7 GB in about 12 hours.

All of this is faster than my uploading to CrashPlan Central.

If this is successful, then perhaps I'll pick up a 2 TB external HD at Best Buy and use this as my official backup plan. What we're doing right now is experimental, lots of band-aids in place to make this work, but I need a long term plan still.

You've been working hard on this one. Oh and I love the Hooray picture!
