Spent the morning with a friend and his family at the Collings Foundation WWII aircraft exhibition while it was in Scottsdale.

Awesome airplanes, and nothing but respect for the guys who flew them. It was cool to hear some of the people around us talk about their parents or grandparents who used to build or fly these things back during the war.

Back it up or lose it

In a cruel bit of irony, today (or tonight, as this is quickly turning into an all-nighter), I learned the hard way to back up my stuff. Again. This lesson, of course, comes with the requisite “hindsight is 20/20″ disclaimer.

So, yeah. Make sure you back up your stuff. Either locally or on a back-up drive or on the web. And it probably wouldn’t hurt to have a back-up of your back-ups, either. I’m just saying.

Personally, I use Dropbox for an off-site online storage, a Western Digital portable drive for on the go, and a Maxtor 500GB drive to back up at home.

And yet somehow I still manage to lose my stuff.
