At the expense of my sister, whose apartment was broken into and robbed Friday night.
Back up EVERYTHING.
They took her computer. With all her music. All her pictures. All her work for her Masters. Most of her work for her first year of her Doctorate. Not cool.
They also stole her entire jewelry box and her camera collection. Thieves sure do have a knack for taking things of sentimental value.
Although most people use an external hard drive to back up, I use Apple’s MobileMe and LOVE it. It has an online gallery for all your photos (which people can also upload to and download high-res photos from), web hosting, and an online hard drive. It, like most things Mac), is very user friendly. I’m pretty sure you actually need a Mac to use this service, but it seems like a lot of people are convertain anyway, so that’s just my two cents.
Anyway, that is your friendly reminder from me, inspired by my poor little sis. ::sad face::
