According to my calculation at the global rich list, if you’re on the dole in Britain, you’re likely one of the richest people in the world – an income of £80 per week, with no other benefits or income would put you in the top 14% richest people in the world.
We nearly always focus more on comparing ourselves with those richer than us, and ignore those who have less, as if they didn’t count. Feeling pressured to keep up with the Joneses? Think of all those people out there who dream of being half as rich as you.
As noted in Reading a Mac OS X disk from Windows if you can plug your Mac OS X drive into your Windows computer then you can use HFS Explorer to read it.
This works fine for Apple Time Machine Backups: look for the directory called /Backups.backupdb/ and within that, the name of your computer. You’ll find dated directories of your backups. If you’re just after the most recent version of your files, then look for a directory called “Latest”.
It’s quite clever — the folder for a given date shows you not just files backed up on that date but everything that was on your original disk at that date. The magic of file system links.
Catacombae – HFSExplorer is just what you need for reading a Mac OS X drive (an “HFS+” drive) from a windows computer.
It’s a self-contained slightly techy app but it gives you read access to the drive, copes with soft links and can copy from the HFS volume to your PC.
