You may have not noticed it but my blog was down for few hours and I had to being it back up using a backup I had. Tarneo, who generously hosts my blog, noticed it first and he did most of the work on the backend.

But all my data was lost due to a faulty database. If I didn’t have a backup, you probably wasn’t reading this post.

This is a reminder that backups are important. I lost very small changes I made on the web site but nothing major was gone; I was lucky.

It takes me just about 10 minutes to backup my web site and everything else I have and store them on two separate hard drives. It’s super easy, encrypted, safe, and lifesaving.

Backup now.
