Two computers die in two weeks; Backups save the day

Phew.

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.

I am a resident of the Bay View neighborhood in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and a member of the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors. That sometimes comes up on here, as it's kind of a small part of my life. No official county business happens here. I'm mostly using this now to give a rough draft account of how we're dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. God help us all.
