Computer 101 tip of the day: "Did you back up your data? Umm I don't do that"
Anyone who has lost important information after a computer failure will be able to relate scene from the show, Sex in the City. In the scene, Sarah Jessica Parker's MacBook crashes while she typing. Her character, who plays a professional writer, panics and becomes even more flustered after her boyfriend tinkers with the computer and is unable to fix it. Later, a technician, while diagnosing the crash, asks when was the last time she backed up her work. She says, "Umm, I don't do that." The scene, while funny in retrospect, is no laughing matter since the computer cannot be recovered and all information is lost including everything she has ever written on it.
