OSNews, Generic OSes First of all: the entire OSNews team would like to wish you a very merry Christmas. Even if you're not religious, there's always porn on the internet, right? Anywho, these wishes are a bit tardy, but that's because I've been fighting a battle with my computer the past few days trying to find a way to record Minecraft footage so I could make a Christmas wish from inside my creations - a losing battle, so it would seem. So, for Christmas, I have two OSNews Asks items for you to ponder. First, help me record Minecraft footage. Second, and this is of more practical use to myself and probably others as well, help me to set up an automatic backup solution that backs up the contents of one folder on an external hard drive to another external drive.

OSNews is supposed to be inclusive of all tech lovers, no matter where we come from or what religious affiliations we hold. So as a tech-loving Muslim I feel left out, or glossed over as insignificant, and slightly offended, when you congratulate people on Christmas, but not say, on Eid, but then on top of that you tell the "others" to enjoy porn, something which is clearly offensive to me and many others (including Christians and atheists).

I know you didn't mean it to be offensive or exclusive, but keep in mind that OSNews is read by people all over the world from lots of different backgrounds, and some of these Christian-centric or Euro-centric ideas can really strike a nerve. I hope in the future we can stick to tech and leave things like Christmas out of it (easier than having to include all of them).
