This week was one of those weeks when I have been extremely busy fixing lots of computers. Most of the problems are such that I was at a point where it required a "rebuild" of most of the computers. Only 2 were Mac's. Unfortunately all of the 5 computers, the owners had not backed up their data. So far I have been able to rescue data on 3 of the computers.

If I can say anything over and over again it would be this.

"Backup your computer soon…. Like today…. or this weekend."

I am a man of few words this week.

Of course we must always have a musical selection.

I did come across an old video from back when I was a DJ/VJ. The year was 1984 Hmmm? Something else happened that year! —– I have always wanted to learn how to Moonwalk like Michael J. It seems Dan Hartman can do it as well. So I can dream! —- Enjoy!



Join me,  I will be guest hosting on the Internet Advisor Show this Saturday 3-6-2010 between 4:00 PM and 6:00 PM on 760 AM — WJR.

    Anyone on a Mac should take advantage of Time Machine. No fuss, no muss, no thinking about it. It just works. Even my MacBook has it’s own little 500 GB Hitachi drive that I picked up for under $100. It’s about the size of a wallet and plugs into a USB port — no extra power cord needed.

    Yes Yes Yes of course Phylly you are correct. —– These folks had older Macs that could not take advantage of Time Machine but solutions like Super Duper and Carbon Copy Cloner are alternatives that could work for them.

    That’s actor Stoney Jackson lip syncing and moonwalking. 25 years later and it still looks amazing.

    I don’t have Time Machine, but I love SuperDuper for backups.

    Thanks for the Dan Hartman link. Here’s another version of the video:

    The Stoney Jackson video is from the movie “Streets of Fire”, I think.

    And, as I have mentioned in a previous post (in a different thread), I like to use Time Machine in conjunction with Super Duper. That way if I have a failure, I can re-boot from my Super Duper clone, and then pull the latest changes from Time Machine.
