The Great SrH : (12 July 2019 - 12:23 pm) Ahh sorry - we think it was suicide!
DxWo : (08 July 2019 - 01:30 am) Hey SrH, no Phenomenal TJ, the one who committed suicide .. what did he do? :(
The Great SrH : (07 July 2019 - 09:31 pm) Hey guys! Dx, I think you’re thinking Tj Da Dj?
DxWo : (01 July 2019 - 09:48 pm) LMD how did TJ go? :(
DxWo : (28 June 2019 - 02:41 am) Wow this place is still here? :)
KCC : (18 June 2019 - 02:24 am) Phenomenal TJ? I probably hadn't spoken to him in like 7 or 8 years at this point. What a fucking shame :(
Jeremy : (09 June 2019 - 03:41 pm) Oh wow... that's terrible. He was one of those guys who I didn't interface too much with, but I always knew who he was. Tough to take news like that. Hope you lot are well, really do
LMD : (08 June 2019 - 07:31 am) Yeah, it was suicide. There were 2 posts around the day of talking about it and how he did it. Lots of people talking about his mental health issues and depression. Admittedly, he and I had a falling out years ago so I hadn't really spoken to him, so no idea what he was going through nor could I even begin to guess. :\
The Great SrH : (02 June 2019 - 08:18 pm) News*
The Great SrH : (02 June 2019 - 08:18 pm) Oh shit that’s sad. I looked him up and had a read through. Looked like he was struggling with mental health so my guess is suicide. Awful need tho!
Jeremy : (02 June 2019 - 03:34 pm) I don't know exactly, but his facebook page is now a "Remembering" page. No other context that I see, but it includes a disclaimer/notice from Facebook at the top of the page about his page being a memorialized account :(
The Great SrH : (31 May 2019 - 08:41 pm) What happened?
Jeremy : (29 May 2019 - 05:22 am) :( :( :( I just looked on Facebook... do we know what happened? :wub: yall
Jeremy : (29 May 2019 - 05:18 am) Wait... no I didn't see :( Dare I ask?
LMD : (09 May 2019 - 05:14 am) So uh, you guys see the news about TJ? Rough stuff. Just wanted to pop in and tell you I :wub: you guys. (Well at least most of you. :shifty:)
Jeremy : (25 April 2019 - 03:02 am) Just don't change the URL :lol:

Does anybody use this? 

 

Last fall, I was looking for a cloud storage service that only charged you for the amount of space that you use. Contrast that with, say, the Google Drive or new Dropbox model of $9.99 for 1TB.

 

I decided to go with Google's Cloud Storage because you pay for what you use. 

 

There's a few things I'm conflicted about with it, though.

 

1. Cloud Storage seems set up for developers hosting massive amounts of data. The service can have APIs hook into it. Basically, it looks way more complicated than what I need. 

 

2. But, these new pricing models are becoming really freaking good, depending on how much space you need. I'm uploading lots of video I record at martial arts seminars. I wasn't coming near to 1TB (and I'm still not), but...

 

3. How much of a pain in the ass is it going to be when I need to transfer off Google Cloud Storage to another service? At some point, I'll be a sucker for paying for what I use when it's more than 1TB, and then I should just be using Google Drive or Dropbox.

 

Oh, what the hell? By the time I get there, a new pricing model will rule the world. Maybe I'm safe on Cloud Storage, after all.

Granted I don't know much about "the cloud" but with all these celeb's leaked n00dz today, theories are floating some sort of cloud was compromised/hacked. I might hold off on jumping into any sort of cloud storage until this mess is sorted, just in case one of these cloud storage device things was in fact hacked.

Yes, I have dropbox, box and onedrive and probably a google drive account as well, but I refuse to keep anything worthwhile in there because frankly I don't think the Government (NSA, CIA, Local PD), hackers or those companies should be seeing everything I do. <_<

 

 

I do keep stupid docs in there I need to transfer from PC to PC but nothing with information I can't be arsed about if it gets out. 

 

 

 

 

I really thought he was talking more about cloud hosting, such as Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure or whatever it's called.
