I am a regular follower of the MacNews blog. I follow it because it’s great reading. Not just because I write in it once a week. So I have become dependent upon seeing Terry on Monday, Phyllis on Tuesday, Jack on Wednesday, and Chita on Thursday.
I am your blogger for Friday.
But last Friday, I was not there. I skipped last Friday on purpose to demonstrate a point. If you missed me, you were probably thinking about backups. If you were thinking about backups, perhaps it triggered you to backup. If it triggered you to backup and you did, then my work is done.
So I ask the questions.
- Did you think about backups
- Did you do a backup
- Did you miss me ( This answer is not important but I will feel really good if you did miss me. I still feel good if you did not but come on….. stroke me a little)
Try to make backups second nature. It really good to do it on a regular basis. As some readers have said, it can save your fat from the fire.
Let me give you a real life experience.
Last week, for some reason when I was working with my smart phone to get it to sync with my Entourage calendar…. kapow! All of my calendar entries were duplicated by 6 times. So every one of my calendar entries were in the calendar 6 times! While an appointment to have my body massage 6 times sounds great, having a tooth extraction 6 times is not fun. There was 2 ways to fix the problem.
This would require me to go into Entourage and manually delete the 5 additional entries. This would entertain problems like my fat fingers deleting some entries that I would not want to delete.
I had done a backup prior to the sync process problem so I just got out my SuperDuper drive backup and did a restore of my data and I was back to my original state in no time. The best part, I could not delete something by mistake. Woo Hoo!
So once again, If you have not backed up lately, perhaps NOW is the time.
Here is a suggested storage buy —–
Musical Selection of the Week
Usually I can find a video to relate to this weeks blog…. didn’t happen. But then it did happen. Someone had to have backed up this video from the 80’s for me to have access to it in the 10’s. Awesome. Campy but fun. One hit wonder and a favorite video of one of my friends. Enjoy!
