My computer is my lifeline. I use it for work, to pay bills, to visit with friends and family that aren’t close by. If I were to lose my computer it would be like losing one of my arms. That’s one of the reasons I purchased the PC with Intel Core that I have now, so that I have a computer that is fast, reliable and gets the job done right. Of course I didn’t always feel this way about my PC, there was a time when my old computer went from being my best friend to my worst enemy all in my instant. I purchased my first computer about 10 years ago, right after my first child was born. It quickly became one of my favorite hobbies as I could play games, chat with old friends on Myspace and upload and edit family photos. Even though I wasn’t that computer savvy I caught on pretty quickly and I thought that my computer was the best thing ever. Of course that all changed the day my trusted friend crashed and I lost everything. Everything including EVERY SINGLE ONE OF MY PHOTOS! But these weren’t just normal everyday photos, I lost nearly every photo from the first year of my child’s life. No pictures of his first Christmas, no pictures of him growing or learning to walk, I even lost all of the pictures from his first birthday. I didn’t have a back-up, I stored everything on this computer. When I learned that these priceless photos were lost forever I was devastated. So you may be telling yourself that I should have printed off those photos, or had a back-up and you would be absolutely right! I unfortunately had to learn my lesson the hard-way. I now back-up all of my photos, videos and important documents because no matter what kind of computer you have, you should always back everything up.
