difficulties

Today things just don't seem right.  I don't feel I belong.  My wishes, desires, ambitions, seem so contrary to this worlds.  I feel different, almost abnormal.  What is wrong with me?  I see others walk through life, seemingly with ease, yet I feel difficulty (it seems) at every corner.  Have a made wrong decisions?  Did I miss a turn somewhere on the "road of life"?  Maybe this is more about what I deserve.  Maybe I just don't measure up.

Or...maybe I just don't belong in this world!  Difficulties come because the world is made this way.  To have it easy is to be in, and of, the world.  I was bought with a price and therefore belong somewhere, and to someone, else.  When life is difficult it is a testimony of my citizenship elsewhere.  Difficulties can be a source of comfort and peace, but only if seen from a different view.

Philippians 3:20-21, "For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior; the Lord Jesus Christ;  who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself."

Hello,My long-term Mozy contract experis this week. I store roughly 800GB of music, pictures, videos, etc for $5/month. Unfortunately, the cost has gone up significantly. I would like to keep using Mozy, but its too expensive. I can either backup my non-critical stuff to a backup drive (which I already do with a Drobo S) and just backup the critical stuff (100GB) to Mozy; OR, I can find another service. What do you recommend? Ive seen CrashPlan, but see its not reviewed on your site (in fact, your sight doesn’t appear updated). Any thoughts on Crash Plan?Thanks!Trevor

There are three main problems with abkcing up to an external hard drive. First and foremost remembering to do the backup. Second, copying files to an external hard drive, doesn't allow you to recover files versions from a particular point in time (for example, restoring a document back to how it looked a week ago). There are ways to accomplish this with an external hard drive, but it would require using some backup software.Third, you should think about the what happens if the house catches on fire scenario. Having some part of your backup strategy to include offsite storage is a good thing.As far as which folder to backup, I suggest (and mozy defaults to) the My Documents folder. Of course, that presumes that that is the folder where you store your important documents. You can also throw a relatively small amount of money at mozy and they will do all your files.As far as security goes mozy has you covered. Your data is encrypted before it is transmitted. It's a good strategy.And finally, I gotta say, that your proposed new category of people really boils down to those that *will* wish they had !

I am lame at all this. OK, it's out in the open. I thought we were esppousd to back up to an external hard drive, which kind of sounds simpler to me though certainly not free. How the heck am I esppousd to know which folder and files are really important in a back up? I thought it was all important?! What about security out there ? BTW, there's at least one more category of people in the world: those who know they should back up and plan to do so soon! Thanks for your reply!
