You know how we're always told to back up our work?
You know how some of us (throat-clearing here) don't always follow that advice?
Well, last weekend my computer's hard drive sputtered to its demise. And for a few days, it seemed unlikely that my files--and please, for a moment, just imagine all the files I had stored--would be recovered.
The ever-brilliant BJ Epstein offered more than her sympathies. She shared with me one of her data-preserving secrets: sending copies of your files to your own e-mail (let's say, gmail) account.
I like it. I hope you do, too.
