Crash -- and Hopefully Not -- Burn

I was just about to start writing a post about the most wonderful cup of hot chocolate I have ever had when disaster struck.

The Man's hard drive crashed on his laptop. Now, this isn't as bad as it could be -- if it had been the computer where his 90-minute film was stored, I would have declared Armageddon -- but it certainly ain't good. Not only has he lost many important contact emails and marketing material for his upcoming film, but now I have to redo hours of work editing the narrative for his script, which he planned to record this week. Luckily, I have an old version saved on my computer, otherwise... well... I don't want to even think about it. As it is, it will take me most the night.

The moral of this story? Back up your work, people! And come by tomorrow when hopefully I will still have the brainpower to write about my mouth-watering cup of hot chocolate.

I haven't had a computer crash (yet), but I've lost flash drives. Now I back up everything to Google Docs. I figure Google owns the rest of my life, it might as well own all of my writing.

Is there a computer doctor in the vicinity who can salvage the hard drive? They have strange power sometimes, these technological shamans...
