Got a Mac? Best backup option i have ever tested

Students do not have lots of cash. Professors do not either, especially at OU.  The cheapest and most useful backup program I have used is Super Duper. This is not an ad either.

It was just $29 years ago, contunues to update for free and it has seemlessly taken our home Mac drive data through recovery from computer fails and equipment upgrades. The best feature is that the external backup drive it maintains is a bootable copy of your drive. So, you can immediatley boot from the backup drive on another Mac and keep working untill you get your busted computer fixed or replaced.

Welcome to the Jungle..Tamed.

I have always built a handy-links page on my own website to quickly click and access webpages I use often for research work or play. Then I do not have to manage bookmarks, and I can access my links from any device available.

The Oakland University website is packed with stuff and it currently requires LOTS of scrolling, especially on phone, and time consuming hunting through sub-menus. I make my own websites and Android Apps, so why not my own FASTER OU website? Here it is  .

If you are a Student, Faculty or Staff member and you would like a one-click link on, then email me your request to:

You can use it too. Then just remember
