Thank goodness for Firewire

My desktop PC's data disk is dying - so I'm updating everything on it to my firewire backup disk (including the stuff I don't normally backup).

Proabbaly time to rethink just how I use this machine. I'm considering dropping it down to a single disk system, but with a much bigger drive. Following a suggestion from jonhoneyball, I'll be running scheduled backups to two firewire drives - and (as ramtops suggests) handing one to a friend when we go on holiday (or sticking it in the car when we're away in the UK).

I have to remember - this PC is my whole livelihood now. And I need to treat it as being that important.

And there are things on it which may not be work, but are still important to me. So I need to back them up as well.

Evil black cats...

...that invade the house, fight our beasts and break my favourite mug as they run out the house...

...and I cut myself on the shards of pottery.

Not best pleased.
