A reminder to all of us...

There's a letter in the Since You Asked column on Salon today from someone who had both her laptop and her backup hard drive stolen in a burglary--a good reminder of why off site backups are so essential and why having your photos also scanned and uploaded to a website makes good sense too.

The letters in response also have some good recommendations about off site storage solutions, including some that back you up daily online.

This column also looks at the grief process and why we Americans seem to think we should "just get over" stuff like this quickly.
