but usually only when I clone a C: drive. I never keep any data files on my OS drive.
For data files I just do a copy and paste, since I don’t necessarily want to copy all the data.
I use a 250 Gb SSD for my system drive and then I have a 2 TB secondary drive that I keep my working files on. I usually partition that drive into Data, Music,…[Read more]
President Trump is making plain the degree to which the country remains divided by the American Civil War. His threat to veto the $718bn Defence Bill if it renames military bases called after Confederate generals harks back to 1861. His stand highlights the bizarre way that the US military has named its biggest bases, like Fort Bragg in North…
The House Armed Services Committee just passed a defense appropriations bill filled with moral contradictions and illogical absurdities. Consider:
It removes some racist symbols in the military, but preserves Trump’s ability to use the military against anti-racist demonstrators.
It abdicates Congress’ responsibility to declare war, but pre…

I have long argued that conservatives’ innate empathy deficit requires them to suffer directly from societal problems and controversies before they will support basic concepts, like the value of the social safety net or the importance of medical research or the morality of same-sex marriage. We’ve seen this play out with the COVID-19 crisis, as…
