Subject: Gap in local Chiara backups 

After the second of the two recent power outages, the outlet powering Chiara's external drive for local backups didn't come back. The modification to the backup script I made correctly identified that the drive wasn't mounted, and happily logged its absence and didn't try to stuff the internal drive with a copy of itself. However, I hadn't checked the logs to see if the backups were proceeding until today... maybe I should set up an email alert for these, too. 

I plugged the external drive into a live outlet, and mounted the 40mBackup drive with: sudo udisks --mount /dev/sdc1, which is a helpful command that puts the drive at /media/40mBackup as it should be, based on the drive label. 

The /cvs/cds backup is now proceeding, to make up for lost time.
