Data backup, it is rocket science and to prove it we brought in Bill Knopf, Program Executive Planetary Data Systems for NASA and Ann Raugh Programmer/Data engineer for the University of Maryland, some real rocket scientist to discuss.

topics included:

Robs extensive report on digital clocking, what it is, what he tested, how he tested and what his results were, it might surprise you, data backup from the experts, what they use and why you should check your DVD backups 3 times, freelance horror stories and how to protect yourself from getting burned and what are the similarities between your studio and a spaceship (more than you think) plus a whole lot more.
