    Sounds really dramatic in a news item though. Click bait. :)

    But yeah, I recently moved away from these cloud services and have a Nas at home now. Only encrypted backups in cloud. Because fuck Google.

      “Unprecedented” is kinda hot right now. Tries to mitigate too much blame being heaped on: “obviously we prepare for the usual and even the unexpected, but this has literally never happened before (give us another shot pls)”.

      So it’s interesting for the news that it takes on a different context when said breathlessly: “UNPRECEDENTED failure!”
