I was watching a rerun of Sex and the City the other day. It was the one about the time her laptop crashed and she lost everything she had ever written. I know that kind of pain and frustration. I have also suffered through a crashed hard drive, which resulted in losing every single digital vacation picture from trips I might never be able to take again. It was devastating!
My computer guy asked me that same thing, once we realized that my old hard drive was just not going to put out anymore. He asked “But you have a backup, right?” Well, no I didn’t. Who backs up anyway?! I thought that was an urban myth!
If we do nothing else together this year, let’s definitely do this. Let’s all go out and buy a thumb drive and back up the things and files and pictures and written words on our computers that mean something to us!!!
