This picture has nothing to do with this post, I just liked it, so I thought I'd include it here.
I've always been pretty good about backing up my computers. That said, I now have many, many, many gigabytes of backed up data, a lot of it involving my old photos.
Lately I've been moving things around, trying for a newer back up strategy. In doing this, I had a few minutes today where I mistakenly believed that I had erased not one but two of my picture backups, leaving me with none at all! Fortunately I found that I had, in fact, backed up my old pictures not twice but three times. And am I ever glad I did.
So a word to the wise. Make sure you back up all that information on your computer. And if it's really important to you, back it up twice or maybe three times.
