Back 'Dat Hard Drive Up!

I have now lived through the nightmare of losing my entire hard drive (documents, files, pictures, music, I don't want to talk about it). But I am taking this experience and using it to help others... BACKUP YOUR FILES! It's one of those things you don't think about until after you have lost honeymoon photos, thousands of songs, and documents you have been working on for months. But one of the things I have learned is that this happens often- even the genius in the apple store said it happened to him 3 times! (That was not sarcastic, the apple tech guys are called geniuses).

So as a friend, I strongly suggest saving all valuable info on an external hard drive or at least on a disc periodically. I don't know a lot about how to do it, but I am about to find out after I pick up my laptop from Easton today. (Also, I am going to renew my warranty before it runs out in 2 weeks, phew).

There, I did it, made it into a way to help others.. again, I don't want to talk about it.
