We had a major computer crash and I have been distraught about the possibility of losing not only my favorite form of communication, but my files. I have so many files!! I have saved a few of them to flash drives, but I was reminded that I have not been diligent about keeping that up or about saving my photos to the two sites I have been using. MUST get that done!
I was also reminded by this that I am very dependent on the computer. My work files are on it and I use it to upload my lesson plans to our website. (I don’t have time to use the school computer unless I stay after school.) I manage the Caddo website. I write my blogs. I upload photos. I do genealogy research. I post photos and information to Find A Grave. I communicate through email and FB. A major part of my life has been “on hold” these past few days.
Years ago I thought the computer would be like another typewriter or word processor and I would be able to write a little faster. It has become so much more!
Let this be a warning to you. We are all one click away from a virus or hacker or scam or aging computer. Think about what you would lose and take action today to protect what you have stored on your devices, including your phone.
