I had all my writing saved on our PC and backed up to a USB key. Last weekend we decided to sell our PC so I made sure all my work was backed up on the USB and planned to save it straight to our laptop. Soooo, I hadn't made the time to save my work onto the laptop, but had stuck the key in the side port. This morning I was sitting feeding my bub and working on the laptop (multi-tasking mum!) when bub made a sudden move and the laptop slid onto the floor. I look down and there is my USB key, the case broken off and the mangled innards bent in a most unnatural way. While I am on the verge of hysteria my husband rushes in and tries to reassure me that the data might be salvagable. It was. Thank goodness. So a free lesson for me, and one I thought I should share - if you write on a computer back your work up twice and email it to yourself. That way, unless the internet crashes you won't lose it all.
