ZenOK Offer Free Online Backup with 21GB storage

ZenOK  was founded by Ron Hessing in 2005 on the belief that data is the most valurable asset people and businesses own today. ZenOK have recently increased their free back up from 2GB to 21GB of storage.

“Online Backup for everyone! It is free and remains free, forever!”

Ron Hessing – Founder (August 15th, 2011)

ZenOK is an experiment in a new kind of Online Backup built on the idea that you should never have to lose your documents, spreadsheets and photos (again), and you should always be able to access the file you want.

I know the feeling of losing important data –  it is not good!  I had a damaged hard drive which took a hell of a lot of work to retrieve some documents and files that I hadn’t backed up. I eventually used Ubuntu live CD to recover the lost data – it worked but it was lucky.  Now I am much more conscious of backing things up.  I don’t put all of my eggs in one basket either, just incase that fails.  So these online backup systems are of great use, especially when they offer so much space.  I think this is the largest free online storage available, most of the time its 5gb’s or you have to pay.  – Correct me if I am wrong.

ZenOK claim to already have 10’000 active users on their system, and I’ve seen no complaints about this service – which is always a good indication.

40.000 photos, 25.000 songs, 150.000 docs.

Your ZenOK Online Backup includes 150GB of storage space for all your email, photos, files, and more.

Military-grade encryption for the safety of your files.

Twitter.com down for 2 hours – so far!

Some people are experiencing downtime on Twitter.com – with this message only:

Something is technically wrong.

Thanks for noticing—we’re going to fix it up and have things back to normal soon.

You can  however connect via 3rd party applications like Tweetdeck or Hootesuite, so all is not lost 🙂  But we do seem to be seeing slow tweets and especially DM’s taking ages to come through.

While the only information Twitter status gives is this ….

I just hope they are not removing OLD TWITTER as I love it still !

Hope this helps, if you were wondering what was going on.



Twitter Problems – Including Error On Page fix

Several problems posting tweets to Facebook and Twitter this weekend … its not Fail Whale its Fail Snail!

They tweeted that they were having problems with Twitter.com and API access but they  have now stabilized it.

Since then we have seen people complaining of missing tweets or tweets taking from any thing upto 15mins to appear in the time-line, ( this I know caused one of my friends the loss of a competition today) there are missing DM’s, still lots of problems but no word from Twitter since the last message 16 hours ago.

Other on going problems are as follows… but are appearing more today!

Error on Page
Some people occasionally get this error message on New Twitter it seems to load and then just says Error on Page,  this appears to be a problem with Internet Explorer 8.

One solution found was to delete cookies, or simply deleting the browser history .

You do this by opening up IE8 Clicking on Safety and then clicking Delete Browser History

Then it will open up this box, you could try first just ticking the box Cookies – and click delete at the bottom to see if this is the fix for you.

If not tick all of these and then delete and the should solve the problem.

Or you could download a different browser such as Goggle Chrome or Mozilla Firefox – I haven’t used Internet explorer for years now.

Blank Page
Another more common problem people have with #newtwitter is a blank page.  This is just a bug and Twitter themselves advise you to switch back to old twitter until you have tried the following.
