    techevang got a reaction from CA3LE in Cloning your HDD (what software)   
    Clonezilla user here! It might not be one for the totaly un-nerdy ones, but it does everything and the docs / site / community is good.
    http://clonezilla.org/

    The limitations are probably quite useful to know about, although they didnt impact me.

    Limitations:

    The destination partition must be equal or larger than the source one.
    Differential/incremental backup is not implemented yet.
    Online imaging/cloning is not implemented yet. The partition to be imaged or cloned has to be unmounted.
    Software RAID/fake RAID/firmware RAID is not supported by default. It's can be done manually only.
    Due to the image format limitation, the image can not be explored or mounted. You can _NOT_ recovery single file from the image. However, you still have workaround to make it, read this.
    Recovery Clonezilla live with multiple CDs or DVDs is not implemented yet. Now all the files have to be in one CD or DVD if you choose to create the recovery iso file.

    techevang got a reaction from CA3LE in upgrading ubuntu...   
    The only worries I have when upgrading any linux distro are normally related to hardware drivers, normally ones for my wifi and video card. If you are not using them (I think ubuntu makes it pretty clear if you are) then you normally shouldn’t worry about upgrading to the latest supported release.

    Now If Mr Valve / Steam (Gabe) would actually get behind his support for Linux, I wouldn’t have any reason to use windows at all

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'm having a look at all of them now.

    Anyone used clonezilla ?
    Not into paying for things if i can avoid it. Since the FSF is so huge anymore you know. I just try and give back when I can.

    techevang got a reaction from mudmanc4 in Noob asking noob questions.....   
    I find it so amuseingly ironic, that the closest most users (inculdeing me) get to acheiveing their advertised speeds is via things like newsgroups and p2p. They being 2 of the transport mechanisms that get aggresively bandwith profiled the most. I realise there are masses of factors that influence this, but I worry about the internet and the growing prevalnce of level 2 networks.
    People like things to work nice, and for the most part in my experiance dont really know / care about how thats acheived.

    techevang got a reaction from mudmanc4 in Awesome site + more testing servers?   
    First and formost, thanks for a brilliant website!
    Ive often mused about the speedtest sites and how pointless they are. Not just from the blatant biased reports they offer, but also beacuse peoples perception of internet performace is so rarely corrolated with their advertised connection speeds and attainable bandwith

    I thumbed up your post in the FAQ section on why you do this and take a hit for it! Have you considered adding a flattr button to your website?

    What I would really love though, would be some more servers based in other parts of the world. I realise this might be problematic in some instances, but I would be most interested in seeing that!

    Keep up the good work!
