Another fine warm day outside. Health wise, a small change in my blood pressure being a bit high. On the positive side no treatment side effects and the rest of my vitals were fine, making this a good day. My mornings becoming routine, starting with a good breakfast, taking afterwards my morning medication and getting ready for my morning walk. Today, being the weekend, the walk it is a family affair.
Getting back from the walk I went with Denise grocery shopping. Since the shopping took us until lunch we pick some fast-food up on the way home. After lunch I did a bit of kitchen cleanup before uploading this morning’s pictures. I received an email last night that informed me that Flickr agreed to be acquired by SmugMug. This will impact my albums and embedded pictures I publish on my blog. At this time I don’t know the details, but they should be forthcoming soon.
The rest of the afternoon I rested my back, working on my photos and blog. Because I store my original photos on my Network Attached Storage (NAS) device, which operates in the classic RAID 1 configuration as a mirrored pair containing two disks, I not only can access the photos from any of my devices. In addition any single disks failure is no problem, the NAS drive will continue to work, all I need to do is replace the bad drive and over the next 24 hours or less, the new dive will have the mirrored data. I have three NAS drives, one for photos/movies, one for music and one for documents. Over the last 5 years I replaced 2 disks never having lost any data.
After dinner I watched some more TV before calling it a day. That is it for today, in summary, today was a good day.
