As most of you know, I love my mac. I really do. It is a simple computer that has become an extension of how I work. The hard drive failed yesterday. Thankfully, I have a very recent backup and Apple may be able to recover the data.
The next 5 to 7 business days will be a struggle. I have my palm, my cell and my iPod. Aargh. Words cannot describe how thankful I am to have a very recent backup with all of my files, but most importantly, about 7,000 photos, consisting of a visual history of my toddler’s entire life and the majority of my older one’s life.
Backup. Backup. Backup. And plan for the worst.
