I feel like you just advertised mozy to me hehe.

But nice to know you watch TV =D. Makes you seem not so creepy guy in corner lol.

Cool! Good publicity! Guess you weren't featured, though ;)

Now, the next step is to get CB featured on the news. Maybe you could add some referral links to Mozy? Or after someone uploads data, they're directed to CB? :P

Thank god for back-ups :D

Sounds cool. For a minute I thought you meant CB was going to be on NBC, but I guess that's a night/weekend job or just a plain hobby.

AdminJonathan October 12 2006 6:01 PM EDT

Mael: I tried to buy CB advertising on the Mozy newsletter early on, but I was turned down. I'm still not sure if Josh didn't think I was serious, or if he doesn't really want to associate Mozy with us. :)

Come on, you're on the development team, right? Add some secret back-door in the software ;)

Or maybe add a note to the CB login page mentioning Mozy. Maybe it'll make CB show up when people google for the now-famous backup software ;)

That is killer Jon!

I suggested a couple people use Mozy recently. The only drawback they saw? You guessed it: It was new and scary and they didn't understand it, so they were scared of it. Apparently even me in my infinite patience was unable to convince them otherwise.

Cool service, I remember looking at it when you posted it before. Although, I personally would rather have a second hard drive, and I would rather not send my information to some remote location.

nice publicity jon.

what was that at the end? Google buys Youtube? WHAT??!

Let me know when that Mac version is ready. 2 GB is more than twice as much as I need. *smile*

AdminJonathan October 13 2006 10:39 AM EDT

you can sign up for notification when the mac version is ready here

QBsutekh137 October 13 2006 2:29 PM EDT

Sure, I _could_ sign up for notification, but now I know a guy on the "inside"... I can't be bothered to give out my e-mail address! *smile*

I caved in and made an account.

Thanks for letting me know it's out there.

Flamey, technically there was no "buy-out" as such as there
was absolutely no cash involved. I can't remember the
finer details but I think I remember (don't hold me to this)
that Google were already the major shareholder with over half in YouTubeanyway meaning they technically had ownership.
