August 14, 2005: Like The Dinosaurs, Like The TrilobitesAs a species, we just don't get something about backups.
Here's a sad story that rings all too true. (Not worksafe, if your workplace is twitchy enough. So throw a blanket over yourself and your monitor, and look. Hit the NEWS button at the bottom for the equally heartrending non-comic version of what happened.)
I've been there. I've had friends go there. I've had staff go there. God help us all, I have had professional IT staff go there.
