yeah that was the other side of the bull, "we have a bonus for you!" and they fly 200 people to Bali or Bankok to play stupid games, but no way are they paying full price if anything at all. (With big firms it's 'sponsored' by their clients, an airline, a hotel group, a training company - as you say they paid little or nothing).
"no thanks, I need to stay back, got stuff on those dates."
"but we've already paid for it" (more bull)
"oh well, bring your wife... don't worry, I won't ask for compensation for not going."
I just have to say Tarantino's latest film is excellent. Some of his films contain unnecessary volumes of blood. This one is fine. All the love here that has gone into the details: cars, buildings, garbage cans, etc is amazing. The colours are beautiful throughout.
If you will only see one movie this year (Netflix doesn't count) then this is the one to pick.

We begin a 6000 mile journey, heading west to Arizona, up through Colorado, Utah and Yellowstone then home along a long route south then east. 6 weeks in total and looking forward to putting my new camera to the test. Hope to get a lot of good photos.

Tomorrow morning I got my exit talk with my current employer, so I'll be "officially" out of a job after that.
They're going to wipe my laptop too, so I'm backing up all my stuff (which should've been backed up already, I know) so they can wipe it clean and I can put all my stuff back...
A pointless exercise, really, but at least they can say "we did everything we could to prevent our data from leaking."
I'm looking forward to be done with it.
Not because they were a bad employer or it's a bad breakup, on the contrary, but just because I'll be free and ready to take on new challenges
Also, can anyone recommend something for automatic backup?
It's mostly documents, music, vacation pictures and videos, but all in all we're talking a good 300 GB here...
I've got an external HD which has most of the files (but it's not necessarily a backup disk).
If it dies I pretty much lose all of my life's work
I know this is not exactly what you ask, but, have you considered a small NAS? something that would not cost you an eye but that would do this, would give you remote access to your files, you could have GIT or any other thing you'd like installed there...
I was used to work against servers at the company before, but since I got the NAS at my new business I've been happier than a clam...
And of course I make external backups to external HDDs too, but I'm not super worried if any of those break... I have 2 RAID disks mounted in the NAS...
Two disk RAID is a pain, you lose so much space - I have four * 4TB drives in mine, so I get 11TB out of the 16 physical, together with failure detect and continue. And backups should be air gapped as ransomware will encrypt / corrupt network drives as well as local ones.
And I still take backup images, so I can restore the whole system if the disk goes / gets corrupted. Much, much quicker than reinstall and reconfigure Windows, VS, etc.

Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
AntiTwitter: @DalekDave is now a follower!
I have two 6TB wd red disks and they costed a small fortune each...
And I still have plenty of space... 2 disks mirrored and as you say the two external hard disks I use to make backups are rotated each month and while one is connected to the NAS the other one is at my parents house...
Not 100% fail safe, but I'm enough ok with it and the size works for me... By now...
When it won't work anymore for me, I'll have to buy a new NAS and a new set of HDDs...
