Computer back up, but my wonderful Maxtor backup harddrive -- which gave me such peace of mind when my computer crashed because I KNEW it backed up my entire harddrive every monring at 5 am -- failed me. Turns out it had stopped backing up my computer on NOVEMBER 8TH (apparently because I took the radical step of rebooting the computer). So I've lost two and a half months of work, transcripts, emails, interviews, press releases, pitches, contacts, invites to movies and theater, etc etc. I'm an ass. And now I know that even an automatic backup system needs to be checked. Lord I can't wait to buy a Mac because my computer software probably would have never crashed in the first place.
