Excuse me, I said "belt and suspenders" not "suspenders and a bra" lol.
Haven't heard that in years. Thanks for the laugh!

rsync sucks as well as blows.........

AS you are a Mac guy, I'd also strongly recommend Chronosync which I find a bit simpler to use, plus it has a GUI.
I'll give it a try.

Unfortunately, that's what it's like in the south. Hazy, hot, and humid every summer. I usually don't even fire my home system up in the summer. Home A/C just too noisy.

The heat and humidity is probably why @bcowen likes cheap beer and vinegar based BBQ. He's been slowly braised to death, from living in NC for so long! He knows no better. No live brain cells left...! :upside_down:
I was in California before moving here. Contributory braising, kind of. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Ah, but suspenders. And, of course, they are not what you think - as a speaker of Simple English.

I often smile and wonder how much of the cultural stuff simply floats over the heads of a non-Brit. For example in the fish licence (another example of Simple English, in the British version nouns have a 'c' and verbs have an 's' - to the amazement of my beloved who claims to have a degree in (Simple) English from Pomona and to have taught English too - when the conversation turns to Eric the cat and the fact that the Cat Detector Van found him. The TV Dtetecor Van (a real thing, BTW) has no meaning or context outside the UK.

I could go on - Ms Jody say I do, relentlessly - but divided by a single language we certainly are.....

Cheers

I know. Pot, kettle, black. And Virginia is just as HHH as NC. But, it doesn't get Hellacious until you hit Florida...! 🥵

I presume the TV Detector Van goes around apprehending people who haven't paid their BBC license fee?

(And if BBC lives off of fees, why do their podcasts have ads? (Yes, I know, just joking.)

then in the last update of ... they renamed them, hid them and completely f&*ed up my automation. I have yet to find a solution that allows regular (automated) downloads of pods
This happened to me about 15yo with Apple's arrogance. Since then I stopped participating in the Apple ecosystem for entertainment media.
Love their OS/hardware but it's becoming less suitable for software development each release.

I have yet to find a workable solution that involves Apple hardware for podcasts. I only want an episode downloaded on Wifi and I want it kept on the device until I listen to it.

Overcast on iOS does this. It can be set to download on WiFi only and I never noticed it deleting unlistened to episodes.

RE: Roon ROCK and backup.

I run ROCK on a NUC8-i5. 256gb SSD for OS and database. 2tb nvme drive for internal storage. The internal storage folder is mapped to my Windows Server 2019 as a network drive. I use RealTimeSync for windows on the server to sync this folder to another windows drive that actually resides in my Synology NAS (RAID6) via an iSCSI LUN. The synced windows folder with all my media then backs up to CrashPlan automatically.

So whenever I copy music to the internal ROCK drive, it automatically backs up to my RAID6 NAS and to CrashPlan. The ROCK database automatically backs itself up to a different folder on the synology. No issues so far over the last several months.

When I bought my new iPad, I enabled the British English dictionaries along with the US versions. Learnt a lot of new words in CodyCross because of that! :)
