As the title said. I'm hoping to find a good solution for myself among your answers. Especially a solution to backup a few TB of data to a offline/offsite location monthly or quarterly. Thank you!
FWIW All my nodes are running a Linux distro. The only exception is my girlfriend's Mac.submitted by /u/juan08880
A few hours ago, October 6, 2016, Canonical's Adam Conrad announced that the upcoming Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) operating system has entered the Final Freeze development stage.
Google has released a new open-source font called Noto, which supports 800 languages and covers 110 writing systems.
Short for 'No more Tofu', the name of the new typeface is a nod to what people call the default white boxes that appear when a computer doesn't understand a character on a website.
"One of the goals of the project was to support every language and every character, so one of the things we wanted to do was make sure there's no tofu for all our users," said Bob Jung, an director of internationalization at Google.
Linux.com: European open source pros are more confident in the job market, get more incentives from employers, and more calls from recruiters than their counterparts worldwide, according to the latest Open Source Jobs Report.
Detested snooping patch KB 2952664 reappears
Perhaps the world has gone truly mad. Or maybe Microsoft's trying to pull the wool over our eyes prior to its major shift in patching strategy -- the patchocalypse -- widely anticipated this month. It's even possible Microsoft wants to bring back the "Get Windows 10" campaign, to drive Windows' reputation even deeper into the dirt.
A Microsoft spokesman says it isn't bringing back the "Get Windows 10" campaign, but our old nemesis KB 2952664 reappeared suddenly yesterday afternoon, and Windows users are livid -- and scared.
Microsoft's Skype locks out iTWire editor-in-chief
Login issues at Skype have bitten iTWire, with editor-in-chief Stan Beer being told his account has been suspended. After 16 hours of waiting, he is still unable to log in, and Microsoft now says it has lost his account and all its data.
A furious Beer would not rule out legal action. "This is unacceptable. I have been using my account practically every day for the past 10 years. It is vital to the operation of my company. If I do not have it reinstated immediately I will have no alternative but to consider my options and take legal action," he said.
An email just received from Microsoft's support team said: "We have checked our records and your account does not exist in the Microsoft system. Please check the spelling of your account. If you are sure this is the correct Microsoft account, it is also possible that it has expired due to inactivity.
"Your account will expire if you do not sign in regularly or within the first 10 days after registration. When the account is deleted, all messages, folders, and contacts are deleted as well. Incoming messages will be sent back to the sender as undeliverable, but the user name is immediately available for registration."
After suffering repeated issues with Windows over many years, Beer thought he had escaped the clutches of Microsoft when he switched to OS X.
But last evening he was given a sharp reminder that the Typhoid Mary of the Internet has a long reach and can still foul up one's day.
Data loss services: Microsoft leads all the way
When you have data you want to get rid of forever, whom are you going to call? There's one sure place to go: Redmond. You are assured of losing your data when you hand it to Microsoft.
The company is not in the habit of keeping backups. That's so yesterday.
No, Microsoft is out there in front of them all, modern-looking chief executive Satya Nadella in the lead, preaching the gospel of getting rid of the old and welcoming in the new.
The bitter truth must now be acknowledged: veteran tech journo Bob Cringely said it first and I have repeated it for some time, but never seen it up so close. Microsoft is a marketing company, not a technology company.
Google Pixel phone's best feature won't be coming to other Android phones, company suggests
Google got us all hot and bothered with the launch of a new pair of smartphones earlier this week, but you can be forgiven for missing a major announcement regarding Android.
The details of the latest version of the operating system, 7.1 Nougat, have been revealed, and it’s missing some of the key features Google waxed lyrical about on Tuesday.
The biggest news is that Google Assistant, which is sort of like a souped-up version of Siri for Android, will remain exclusive to the Pixel and Pixel XL, in the near future at least. The virtual helper played a central role in Google’s event, with the company taking time to demonstrate how it supports two-way conversation and learns from you as you spend more time using it.
Android 7.1 Nougat won't bring Assistant to everyone
If, after seeing all the software goodies on Google's new Pixel phones, you hoped that some of those cool features will trickle down to other Android phones capable of running Android 7.1 Nougat, you'll be disappointed.
Google's smart personal assistant Assistant (Google did not do us a favor when naming this one), as well as unlimited, free backup for full-resolution photos and videos will remain Pixel-only for the time being. Somewhat less surprisingly, non-stop customer support service won't be included, either.

keysafe with local shares
If your gpg key is too valuable for you to feel comfortable with backing it up to the cloud using keysafe, here's an alternative that might appeal more.
Keysafe can now back up some shares of the key to local media, and other shares to the cloud. You can arrange things so that the key can't be restored without access to some of the local media and some of the cloud servers, as well as your password.
For example, I have 3 USB sticks, and there are 3 keysafe servers. So let's make 6 shares total of my gpg secret key and require any 4 of them to restore it.
#RedhatDID: Retrospective and a look ahead to future events
The day several Redhat trainers and industry folks met to talk about best practices and give feedback on the vision and mission ( and speed of progression) of Redhat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and upstream / downstream projects and products. Among one of the most popular Sessions was the one by Robin Price and Martin Priesler on OpenSCAP which was a standing room only session with nearly 1/3 of attendants in attendance for this talk / session. Rita Carroll and others setup a interest list for those that would like to attend another OpenSCAP Workshop (mainly centered on a hands-on event but other venues seemed open for debate). If you’d be interested regardless of whether you like me were in attendance please email Rita @ firstname.lastname@example.org with a simple subject line referencing OpenSCAP Workshop (Tysons Area).

Libre Application Summit 2016
I had a great time at the Libre Application Summit in sunny, hipster moustachioed Portland – many thanks to Sri for inviting me. Sorry this blog post is a bit late, but things have been really busy with the Fedora 25 Beta release (which we signed off on today).
For a first year conference without a crazy marketing budget or anything, attendance was great – it was a good size for the venue, the number of sessions, and the social events, things felt busy and there was a lot of people-getting-to-know-each-other going on. Sri, Adelia and friends did a great job of finding a good venue and getting a solid wifi network, providing food and coffee, and setting up some fun social events.
