    @jws @johngordon when my machines are running right I always have two TM backups (I assume one will go bad) and two full disk backs I alternate between plus back blaze and a bunch of semi manual ones. Haven't quite figured media backup yet.

      @johngordon worse because Google doc files are really just urls you can't back them up

        Really weird timing for announcement. Lost in all of Trump's dumpster fire is how weak of a campaign she's run.

          confess disappointed C picked Kaine although that was for months the safe bet. Wish she'd picked Booker.

            @johngordon Because misleading sensationalism sells while facts don’t.

              @johngordon But I also agree that there has been a “let’s throw Reagan policy and current situation without adapting” problem in GOP. Again though I think Noah has the tail wagging the dog in terms of causation.

                @johngordon Throw in gerrymandering and conservative media playing base (Limbaugh, Ailes, Hannity, etc.) and you really explain most.

                  @johngordon Why the GOP chose those leaders has no small part of randomness to it. It wasn’t obvious in 1999 just how bad Bush was. I think rest can be explained by many putting expediency above long term success.

                    @johngordon Do think he’s right about lack of stimulus effect of Bush tax cuts though. That should have been a big wakeup call. But of course everyone still debates what stimulus did and can do despite Bush/Obama stimulus.
                    clarkgoble
                      @johngordon I think Noah is missing role GOP leadership played in all this. Especially Bush, Rove, McConnell and others.

                        @johngordon Media has not served public well on these issues. For all media criticizes Trump, they created environment of misinformation on these issues. (For both right and left)

                          Curious as to how LGBT shakes out over next decade. Big social fight is largely over even if a few social conservatives are in denial. But that also tends to kill the issue and in some ways GOP is more natural for group once main issues resolved.

                            In a party that has been reluctant to adopt them, convention speakers embrace LGBT rights [www.washingtonpost.com] Trump called for LGBT people to be protected during his convention speech.

                              @johngordon The file system is a completely different group and is doing it ground up rather than trying primarily to work with a different OS. So I don’t think SMB tells us much. (AFP IMO was OK but very dated - more like HFS)

                                @johngordon Apple is stuck with what MS allows. Samba was non-Apple and arguably worked poorly due to MS trying to make it hard for anyone to connect without MS. Apple’s SMB is licensed from MS so I think MS deserves much of the blame.

                                  I’ve really loved the Netflix Marvel series - especially Daredevil who was a character I never really got into before. Really looking forward to this.

                                    Luke Cage trailer http://www.slashfilm.com/luke-cage-teaser-trailer/ I have to admit that Luke Cage & Iron Fist were among my favorite comics when I was a kid. (I didn’t know the films they were riffing on but just loved them on their own terms)

                                      @johngordon but Romney definitely was a better person and far more competent than Trump. R also alienate Ts base plus conservatives didn't trust him. Trying to be what he thought cons wanted led to his self destruction with 48% video.

                                        @johngordon Romney always came off as trying to be what he thought people wanted him to be - it came off as very inauthentic.

                                          @johngordon @jws I’m not sure about that, but I do bet the services side at Apple has been in a mess too long. (Honestly I think this problem goes well back to Jobs era at Apple)
