You reading this...


Yeah, you. Close your eyes. Well, you're reading, so think about closing your eyes. And relaxing. Find a clear moment to sit in. Got it? Ok.
Now. Imagine your computer is going to betray you. Your precious ally, your confident, is about to give up the ghost. Visualize losing all your bookmarks on your computer. Now envision your precious digital photos, all your birthdays and anniversaries, poof. Your address book, filled with 7 years of addresses of friends and family, some contacts you only have here and in no other place. Those Word documents, the ones you typed out. Work you spent days on. All your itunes music, bought and paid for. You know, they don't offer repeat downloads of that stuff, no matter how much you cry. And what about the much larger illegal collection of tunes you stole? Ouch right? Never mind digital movies, DVD projects, sound files, and good lord, EMAIL?

Scary right? But you're ok.

For now.

Now go backup.

my fave post


Its so good I sought out the site again just to reread it. Funny stuff.

Corelli Adagio from concerto grosso op 6 no 8 in G minor from the album "Master and commander - The far side of the world" by BSO - OST

MT 3.2


I upgraded MovableType on my blog to version 3.2. I started having some minor issues, when I found a few pages that seemed to be discussing my problem. Sure enough they were right, I just needed to do a few tweaks. The funny part is I read a note that cautioned people not to start updating late at night, when no one would be able to help. Well, the clock was running down for me to get to bed (had to be in the office early to meet vendors upgrading our T1) and I managed to get the whole thing done and working before bedtime. Now that I am looking at the tools available to me (the upgrades to tools I started using 2 years ago) I am simply blown away. uploaded photos directly to my MT blog with just typing in my user name and password. A free, private developer written plugin for iPhoto worked flawlessly to take pics from my iPhoto and send them to Flickr. Ecto, which I bought ages ago, had an update too, and is posting this note. Really simple, and just amazing programs that I think make blogging on the Mac so freaking easy. I installed Movabletype back when it was new and sort of rare to see, as it wasn't exactly easy to do. But sheesh, now anyone can do it so easily its freaking me out.
