Notes from our travels across a mysterious world.

The Ohio Backup Plan

You know that Ohio state government data storage device, containing the personal information of hundreds of thousands of people, that was stolen from an intern’s car? You ever wonder why that kind of information would be in an intern’s car? Well, the Associated Press explains:

Under protocol in place since 2002, a first backup storage device is kept at a temporary work site for a state office along with the computer system that holds all the employee information, and a second backup device is given to employees on a rotating basis to take home for safekeeping, officials said.

That reminds me: I need to go and put my backup drives in their customary location in the old hollow tree out back.


  1. You know the hollow tree is in the FRONT yard. And it blew down in that horrible rainstorm…

  2. Dang it, I was trying to be all stealthy, like Ohio. 🙂
