It's been a while since my last post. Unfortunately, I've had a bit of an IT disaster. My trusty laptop - or rather the new one I got 6 months ago - has completely died. I can't get any data off it - which is worrying as it's been a while since I last backed up.
I'm also out of the country so I can't get to my backups.
What have I learnt from this?
- always carry two laptops if you're going to be away from home for a long time (I actually learnt that a while ago, and bought a backup PC for exactly that reason - I just wish I'd kept files synchronised across both machines)
- it's time I invested in online backup. I would have been able to log on and restore my data even from abroad. I'll be checking out the various options available. If anyone wants to know what conclusions I reached let me know
To quote the BBC when I was growing up: "Normal service will be resumed as quickly as possible"
