Once upon a time, in a land known as San Diego, Rocky owned a computer. Then one day the evil demon cast a curse upon Rocky’s computer and the hard drive crashed. Rocky went to the wise old man and was told to buy back up software and also performance software for his computer. He was also told to back up his computer at least once a month.
Through the years Rocky heeded the wisdom. From floppy disks, to zip drives, to CDs and DVD back ups. Then one day the evil demon cast a spell upon Rocky. The spell of being cocky.
Okay, so maybe it wasn’t an evil demon, but I did get cocky. And I didn’t want to run out of room for my backups. Now mind you, a new wise man ( who goes by the earthly name of Craig Daniels ), advised me to subscribe to Microsoft 365 because it included 1TB of cloud drive to back up all my files. But I was thinking, “My computer’s new. I don’t need to worry. Besides with all the files I make, I may run out of space in my cloud account.”
Then, last week my hard drive crashed. I salvaged what I could but still lost a great deal of data. And went back to my old computer (kind of like leaving a super charged Mustang for a Vespa) while my new computer is fixed.
To make matters worse? When I Fed Ex shipped my computer to get repaired, It went to Memphis. From there it was to go to Dallas. Guess which two cities got a snowstorm? Yep, Memphis and Dallas. So, my computer is at least 2 days delayed.
I may have to make a sacrifice at the altar if I want my computer back before Monday. It may not even be until Wednesday.
But now I also have changed my database and video business that I do for real estate agents on the side. Now I am backing up all client files religiously. Lest the demon return again.
