A computer in these people's hands is all the things they have listed. I can only marvel. My computer is a $1200 paperweight that I can occasionally use to write some messages to some people. More often than not, it is a headache and a problem. On Friday of this week I get a new "operating system" and I have to prepare for the eventuality that the installer os said device will lose all my shit.

So I am backing up. My music (5400 songs) alone is going to take 82 HOURS to backup. Forget the 5 years of documents, slide shows, spread sheets etc...
