Back it up. . .

Seems like I've heard about a lot of people's computers crashing lately. That would be a nightmare . . . and since my computer could choke at any time, I decided a while ago that I needed to back it up. However, I didn't particularly want to put all my files on disk, as that didn't seem super reliable or convenient. So I found an online storage site . . . (wait for it) . . . for FREE. Well the first 25 gigs are free. And what do you know, my computer is only 2o gigs--perfect. Just go to MediaMax.com to sign up for a free account and start uploading your files. They even separate them for you into video, music, photos, etc. Then, when (not if) your computer crashes you can download your files onto your new computer from the internet. Nice huh? It's still been a bit of a process to upload everything, but so far I have all my photos uploaded and most of my music. You can even host your files online and/or share them with friends and family. (Also, I couldn't get it to work in a Firefox browser, but it was fine with Explorer). Anyway, just wanted to pass on some good info . . . I may have just saved a computer or two.

  4. Thanks for this info Amy. I needed to hear it.

    I think I would love it if you renamed the post:

    "You're a big fine woman when you back that thang up."

    or:

    "girl, you look good when you back that thang up"
