Recently I was contacted about a video of my sin that was on youtube. A television station wanted to give me thousands of dollars to license and use it for two years, did I have the original file?
Uh. Yeah, but it is stuck on a laptop that died due to a kid induced water immersion!
It was at this point we learned the importance of backing shit up. Using a document imaging software an external hard drive, or whatever other things there are out there, just. DO.IT.
Thanks to facebook and some super peeps there, I got my photos and videos off the dead laptop, but I should have had a back up in the first place to avoid the needless panic I went through!
(We now have an external back up system!)
