    @benburry Thanks. Should be OK… just wasn’t sure where a good but simple starting point was.

    @benburry Smashing ta! Not a busy db at all :)

    @benburry Something like that :) Maybe pg_dump and zaiste.net/2015/01/backup… or wiki.openkm.com/index.php/Back…

    @benburry I think you’re right… although it sounds so complicated I’d be worried I was missing something crucial :)

    @benburry Yeah I saw that and didn’t 100% understand. Seems to be about continuous backups? More than I need if so.

    I also came across this nice video by Metronomy, which you’ll love if you like the Barbican and feeling dizzy: youtube.com/watch?v=JrBRwf…

    @tomstuart It’s not, because I’ve spent my time making a playlist on YouTube.

    @tomstuart I’m living the dream.

    I’ve made a YouTube playlist of music videos which include shots of the Barbican. Let me know if you know of others! youtube.com/playlist?list=…

    @dracos Thanks, I’ll have a look. I was just looking at zaiste.net/2015/01/backup… but find it hard to tell what’s sensible/good/terrible/etc.

    @frabcus Thanks. I’m not on this project though. And can’t face re-jigging that kind of thing again right now.

    Anyone got a favourite, simple way to automatically back up a postgres database to S3 daily? Sorry, so dull, but seriously, thanks, OK, over

    When I scroll down to find a web page’s footer but it’s got infinite scrolling I feel like the ground has vanished and I’ll fall forever.

    @minor9th What they all said. I was sceptical but it really sped up my old 2008 MacBook. Probably gave it an extra year or so of useful life

    @tomstuart Before you started you should have asked Quora for advice.

    "it … brings Google back to a place of dominance as the glue that holds your digital life together." Get a grip. Do you listen to yourself?

    Bloomberg: "What Google Just Announced Is a Bombshell" I had to read to check: it's not actually a bomb shell. Yet. bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
