Computer Crisis Over...for now!


Got the computer back and its working fine. Don't know what happened but all is well. The computer tech didn't even charge me. That's big in a day when people find ways to charge you just for walking in the door!

So, we're still a PC family. But I know it won't be long until I reunite with Mac!

One thing I've learned from this ordeal is that its worth paying for an automatic back-up system! I'm not so great about backing my files up regularly. I signed up for a free account at Mozy.com and could at least access some of my files. I'm now signing up for their $4.95/month service which gives me unlimited storage space. They back up automatically so its effortless. Frankly, at $60.00/year, that is worth it! I'm keeping my bookkeeping separate, but am happy to know that my graphics, marketing materials, photos, and everything else are safe. BTW, a programmer friend has been using this for years and if he trusts this then so do I.

I must admit that it was nice to step away from my computer for several days. I still had access to a laptop and could do many of my routine things, but the excuse was great!

Relieved, I'm off to sew...
