Public Service Announcement

Last night, my computer was attacked by an evil virus, which was clearly written by some malicious douchebag with no friends and whose mother didn’t hold them enough when they were a baby.

I had to completely wipe my poor computer.

Luckily, I regularly back up my files. So I didn’t lose anything really important.

Please take a moment to back up your files.

And make a regular back-up schedule for yourself.

You don’t want to lose your manuscript to a malicious douchebag…or an accident…or a quirk of technology…or anything else.

So….

Back up your files.

Back up your files.

Back up your files.

Back up your files.

Back up your files.

Back up your files.

Back up your files.

This has been a public service announcement from your friendly local Dr. Grasshopper.

Have a great day.

  1. At the very least, use a free service like Mozy (http://mozy.com) Backs up your computer *every day*. Or use something like dropbox (http://www.dropbox.com) to do critical, single folder or file backups (drop them into the dropbox when you’re finished, pull them back out when you’re ready to work on them again.)
