Save your work!

My husband's phone died and he lost ALL his work and personal contacts because it was not backed up. Due to the fact that we are really stubborn, we managed to get the phone to turn on again and he was able to retrieve them. Now, he has them backed up in 12 different places. I highly recommend that you take a few minutes to figure this out.

That's all I've got today!

Have a good day of labor!



  1. Wow--lots of news and stuff I was unaware of--thanks for the heads up on some of these. I'm DOING that character thing on the 12th, so I will head over and check those out.

  2. Thanks for the shout out! And for reading my ridiculously long post. I've actually been meaning to back up my flash drive, so I think I'm gonna go do that right now...

  3. That's right! I need to water the plants. Thankfully for the house, I never use an iron! Hope you had a terrific long weekend. :)

  4. Sorry about your husband's lost files, but at least he got them back. My external hard drive broke down one year and I lost two years' worth of files, all of which were from my work in my master's program. Primal screaming may have been involved.

  5. I don't know how to back up stuff on my phone. Woe is I. Turn off the iron? The question is, why would I turn it on? Why would I even get it out of the closet?


  6. Water the plants...I do need to do that. Thanks for the reminder!

    And thank you for the shout out.

  7. That back up reminder is a good one for me. Thanks!
