The Long Memory of Zumodrive

Img001_320x480I am a highly active and avid user of the cloud storage system Zumodrive. In fact I have written about it a number of times before and it was one of my favourite apps from 2009.

One of the things that it can do (unless you turn it off) is to give you little pop-up messages telling you what it is up to. On a Mac this is done via the Growl notification system which I then have pushed to my iPhone. Today I received a notification from Zumodrive that it had updated six files in the list “40 years 3 months 24 days 9 hours 37 minutes”.

There are a couple of impressive things about this: 1. that it can remember that far back, long before the invention of PCs and 2. that they even bothered to code for it!

However, I somewhat suspect that this is nothing more than an amusing bug.
