When I migrated to SSD on my Mac mini, I kept the original 1 TB hard drive to store my old Mac OS data. That was just in the SSD migration failed. After two weeks of non-event, it was time to blow up my 1 TB hard drive. That means deleting the entire drive and using it as a backup drive for storing miscellaneous and less frequently accessed files. I’m not worried about the new SSD failing, because I have Time Machine. I can always restore the entire OS from my Time Machine backup. So, I dumped everything on the 1 TB drive and emptied the Trash Can. I took awhile, but now I have all that real estate for storage.
If you were shopping for an app, at $8 billion dollars, would you buy Slack?

Slack has $2.8 billion valuation. They have 2.3 million active users, and about 650,000 paid users, and they recently received $160 million funding.

I change fonts on this site often.
It’s made possible by Google fonts and my Google Fonts custom plugin.

I’m currently using the beautiful ‘Raleway’ font.
It can change in a moments notice.
US Mens National Team is in the “group of death” again after the latest draw for the Copa Centenario. This seems to be the pattern every major tournament. The last two World Cups and now the Copa Centenario. It will be a tough group to get out of. I guess it’s just the luck of the draw. USA will Colombia, Paraguay and Costa Rica.
This is Cowell’s Beach in Santa Cruz. The live stream is courtesy of Surfline. This is the free version. It streams for about 30 seconds at a time. Ads are sandwiched in between the streams. At the moment, there’s a big swell from the WNW bringing 3-5 foot waves, and occasional 6 foot waves. If it’s going good at Cowell’s, Mavericks at the moment is firing at 20-25 feet, with occasional 30 foot waves.
Saw the Oristand from the Wall Street Journal website this morning.
I want one. It’s only $25.
