    AWS S3 Intelligent Tiering is sweet for backups. Super cheap. Automatically moves stuff you don't look at often to cold storage which is bonkers cheap.

    Is it worth figuring that out for offsite over using a service like BackBlaze?

    I guess if you are already familiar with it, sure. But I see your point.

    Hagerty's insurance for my S2000. My normal insurance company kept telling me they'd only give me book value if I put in a claim on the car and wouldn't let me use an appraisal (wtf?). With the market for these cars being so bonkers now I went with hagerty's to cover my butt.

    Yes, standard auto insurance is based off actual cash value, not replacement cost. If you want to use an appraisal that means that the rates would change as well. Some insurers do not offer that non standard coverage. You will now probably get asked to provide an appraisal every so often and rates will get revised each time.

    Supper for 4 at Mic Mac Tavern. Huge portions, decently priced! However, 3 of us didn't feel good afterwards.

    There weren't many...that's for sure! Took us awhile too. Quite a few offers before we finally got a bite! Selling in NB wasn't nearly as bad. Be happy when we are moved back and settled!

    Loved being a bay boy. Was born in Hackett's Cove. Moved to Sheldrake Lake in grade 10. After my stint in the army I moved back to the bay with the ex wife before heading to Middleton.
