What would you do?
Technology is great. That is, until it craps out on you, then it's not so great anymore. We have an old computer and by old, I mean it's not quite four years old. It started having issues this weekend and Trey and Apple Support spent some quality time together on the phone Saturday afternoon to try and fix it. By the time he got off the phone, it was looking like all was good and back to normal.
Not so much.
I'm not sure, but I think he managed to back up at least the pictures and music while the computer was functioning properly, which is good. Trey loves music and I'm a bit of a shutterbug. I love to take pictures and one picture just won't do. He collects music like nobody's business. Let's put it this way: We have just over 7000 pictures that have been taken starting around Monkey's first year and I couldn't even begin to count the number of songs we have. Yes, we have a problem.
Hi, my name is Kool Aid and I like to take pictures.
Now, I know that pictures aren't supposed to replace the memories, but it's fun! It's something I enjoy and the family loves it when I remember to send them pictures that I've taken. I can't imagine losing all those pictures.
So, for those of you who take digital pictures, what do you do to back them up? Do you use an external hard drive? Do you also back them up at an internet site? Do you just burn them to a CD or DVD? Or all of the above, making back-ups of your back-ups?
If nothing else, this may be an excuse to get a new computer...
