Confession: data backups

I have been burned before. Hard drives die, data gets lost. This has been painful, especially for me (a data pack-rat). My goal has always been to preserve every digital item I’ve created – I have all email ever sent going back to late 90′s, etc.

So why haven’t I backed up in 6 months? I couldn’t tell you, except that life catches up with you. But this is inexcusable! That is 6 months of irreplacable digital photos of my child, family, life. But it takes ~1 hour to manually do this, I have to do it for both my and Franny’s laptops, and it’s annoying.

James and I designed a better solution. Not enough hours in the day to build it though. I wish someone else would, but all backup software I’ve seen so far is crappy. Ah well. End rant.

    No crash – just noting that I'm not prepared for one. And I should be because I know better. And if I'm not and I know better, then who the heck actually does this regularly enough?
