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.
And yet somehow I still manage to lose my stuff.
