It was inevitable, my hard drive crashed. One minute it’s spinning away inside a two year old MacBook and the next there’s just a pale gray screen. It was a bit sad and the trip to the Apple store was pain thanks to throngs of Holiday shoppers, but in the end it was no big deal. Because I back up.

That’s right, I use an Apple Time Capsule and manually back up my data every so often. A few things were lost,  but for the most part all documents, research, photos and presentations are safe and sound on a separate hard drive. There are even better ways to manage this feat, and I plan on upgrading to Apple’s Leopard operating system that does automatic timed wireless backups, eliminating the need to manually save data in a separate location.

It’s a pretty great feeling to have done something right.
