  5. Encrypted off-site backup solutions?

    What off-site backup solutions do people here use? I'm looking for one with built-in encryption too. Also, any thoughts on how secure Dropbox is, given it doesn't really encrypt/Dropbox control the keys?

    Does anyone know how web analysis tools tell whether a user is on a tablet, smartphone or desktop when they produce their analytics? Does it actually detect the device type or is it looking at browser type/os?

  9. Connecting multiple Bluetooth devices to one phone.

    As per the title, anyone know if this is possible with an Android phone, specifically a OnePlus 3T. For my upcoming jaunt on the bike it would be nice if I could connect a bluetooth earpiece with my phone as well as the bike computer at the same time.

  13. Any SAPs out there?

    I've got a .net application that runs a sql script to populate a staging table. It's written to be generic - ODBC connection to the feed system(s), and the sql is read from a text file that is configured for each customer (using OdbcCommand - so the SQL is just a string).
