I really need to put all my pictures onto CD...this post has inspired me to do so tomorrow. :smile:

By the way, do people have nothing better to do in their lives than think of ways to be mean. Gah!

Oh goodness. Yep, been backing up regularly now since I got caught up in the whole Diary-x crash fiasco X_x That was a nightmare, but thankfully I only lost about. . .I'd say 10 entries. Thanks classwhore for the warning! I can't be having my work held hostage!

wow! that is crazy! losing work is never a good feeling. i remember in my first year of university i had to hand in a rather lengthly paper that i'd worked hard on, only to have the computer die and for me to loose it all. it was horrible!

Geeze... that is just awful but thanks for the heads up. It is really important to back up your computer and sick viruses like this should give you so much more incentive!

Yikes. I do try to back-up regularly now. One good thing about Macs, incidentally -- fewer viruses out there are targeting them.

This is changing though. You should always back up your documents, even if virus don't compromise your machine- a thief can jack your computer. :smile: If you have an ipod with extra space, back up with your ipod. External memory is pretty cheap these days. If you need a device for cheap, check out www.bensbargains.net- my favorite website for my dorky needs.
