Rumors Of My Computer’s Death Are Spot On 5

  • Sharebar

Unbelievable. Suddenly with no warning, my computer decided not to turn on last weekend.

Oh, it turns on for few seconds I suppose. Just long enough to give me hope. But nothing ever appears on the screen before the power shuts off, then on, then off, then on in a never ending loop. Seems to be a common problem with HP Pavillion’s (And here).

In any case, enough woe is me.

This is just another reminder that your computer and all it’s files can go at any time.

If you’ve taken my advice in the past then you’re ready for a computer failure like I was. But if you’re still leaving important files not backed up on your computer, maybe it’s time you consider cloud computing as well.

Here’s my advice in a nutshell.

1. Switch to GMail for handling email, so you can access it at any computer.

2. Use web applications instead of desktop applications whenever you can. For example, Google Calendar is better than using whatever software came installed with your operating system.

3. If you write sales copy, then plead with me to release Copy Breeze immediately so that all of your projects will be backed up both on your webhost and in your email.

4. And use extra space on your webhost’s server to store important files.

Those are my general rules and they made sure the death of my computer was simply an annoyance instead of a disaster.

    AMAZON “S3” Cloud Computing is a GodSend and VERY CHEAP !!

    My URL link provides Video Training on Cloud Computing

    BTW, I added a SATA1 drive as a second hard drive for DATA only. I never worry about system crashes; Just buy a cheap c:\drive and RESTORE your GHOST image (PRESTO)

    Oh I forgot to say that even though I have a second SATA1 hard drive for DATA….

    I subscribe to MOZY backup server and have hourly backups to MOZY services.

    Thanks Johnny, I’m sure I’ll check out the Amazon S3 service soon. I’ve heard nothing but good things.

    I used to use FirstBackup for automatic backups but since I’ve put these new systems in to place, I’ve been able to cancel it.

    Cheers!
