Public Service Annoucement to BACK UP your information, ALWAYS!
Our primary home computer has been cranky all year but it seemed like more old age issues of working really slow, not wanting to visit many websites, etc. I'd learned to work around it's quirks and only used it for very specific basic things like scanning, saving photos, storing home information, etc. So when the computer suddenly shut off while plugged in I was completely mystified! No blue screen warnings of hey, I'm about to take a nose dive into computer death. No warnings. Just sudden death.
Of course I'll be taking it to a computer store to try and salvage the information, which will put a dent in the computer budget I've been saving all year to get a new one - boo hiss! I haven't backed up all year and that's just irritating me because it's been on my list of things to do for a year.
Henceforth my plea to please back up your work, always.
