Preventing Disaster

The LG DVD re-writer I ordered recently arrived last week and it didn't take me long to get it up and running. Installation on the Dell machine was a doddle, and the drive performs very nice and quiet. So far I've backed up a lot of my photos, all onto one dvd. Hoorah!

Now there must be a disaster prevention strategy which could help me avoid popping off without having achieved much in life, still bound by the shakles of maya, with the jamdoots waiting for me ready to escort me to receive my just reward....

Paarji, just a word of cuation - don't rely on one backup - make at least 2 Ie make a copy of the backup DVD; as media failures are not unknown. DVD media is cheap and multiple backups are well worth it.

About that other prevention strategy - there is a solution; we both know it and I suspect we're both trying to do it (to some extent or other).

I suspect my imaginary report card says; "must try harder" - too true.

ss ji, thanks for the reminder, good advice, definitely need to act on it.

As regards the other important strategy I have a long, long way to go. I was hoping maybe some gurmukh might throw a few sparks over my direction and jolt my spirit into realisation.

my report card: "does not try."
