Notes on Backup

I made a very brief note about a thing called ccApp.exe.  An *.exe file is an ‘exec’ file and it does something.  In fact it used to be almost the only executable other than a batch file.  Sigh.  Anyway, the solution for me was simply to uninstall Norton Save & Restore (because their advice was not to mess with that little executable file)…because a real restore was going to be from the cd anyway.  I may have to input a registration number, but I have it.  I don’t follow Windows conventions on storing data because I’ve found them generally disastrous; My Documents isn’t something I generally use…except on Rose’s old computer…which backs itself up faithfully to its little external drive.  I just don’t want to lose the setup.  It takes a long time to do it.

 

I’ve also started on using Ubuntu.  That is, I have the *.iso download, and I’ve either pointed at the burner for that or installed it…I think I installed it.  (I might be getting tired again.)  You see…with an operating system off a disk…you can take a nice picture of one disk…and put it on another.  Theoretically.  We’ll see how it works.  Since point-to-point isn’t the logic employed, but rather named distribution (with NTSF as far as I understand it simply running a 64-bit version of a File Allocation Table, so where I say it is matters more than where it is, you see?)…never mind.  I think I may have burnt out for the day. 

Sizzle.

The notes I’m working on are actually about the research project I began a couple of decades ago, and the philosophical observations that prompted it.  I’m sure it wouldn’t be accepted as formal work.  Hell, if I walked into an Ivy League school I would probably cease to exist because they wouldn’t believe in me.
