- Technicians at the KGRK weather radar encountered a rattlesnake during an upgrade this week. The official NWS statement says “DUE TO COMPLICATIONS INVOLVING A RATTLESNAKE DURING TODAYS UPGRADE…THE KGRK RADAR WILL REAMIN DOWN THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT HOURS AND POSSIBLY INTO WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON.”
Why should you backup?
- Not lose your data
- Not waste money, effort
- Legal obligation (taxes, grant data policy, etc)
What makes a good backup?
- Local and offsite
- Multiple backups
- Harward and software independence
- Copies of raw and processed data (if possible)
- Archivable formats
- Incremental snapshots and clones
It’s not okay to “backup” versions of files like this!
- Backblaze (cloud, $50/yr) - This is what John uses for one of his backups
- Carbonite (cloud, $varies) - Not carbon copy cloner as said in the show
- Time Machine for Mac - Another backup method John uses
- Super Duper (Mirroring)
- Carbon Copy Cloner (bootable backups)
Fun Paper Friday
- The Earth’s core is complex with possible tectonics happening at the inner core interface.
- Also, the inner core has been divided into two regions with the names: outer-inner core and inner-inner core.
- Geophysics: Tectonics in the Earth’s core (Olson, 2009)
- Equatorial anisotropy in the inner part of Earth’s inner core from autocorrelation of earthquake coda (Wang et al)
