Two computers die in two weeks; Backups save the day


Although both Stacie and I have now had our computers die, and the failure of hers is yet to be diagnosed much less fixed or replaced, we both have recent-enough backups of our essential data. For me, that means 1.67 gigabytes of photos, every single one of which are being restored to my laptop from the external hard drive.

Make backups. And let’s be careful out there.
