My kids love to play this game of “would you rather”. It involves getting to pick one option from two awful choices. They might ask something like – Would you rather swim with sharks at feeding time or feed a poisonous snake by hand? Or, would you rather sit in a bathtub of bugs or lick peanut butter off a dirty foot? My answer is always – NEITHER! Then they usually say, “Mom! you have to pick one – that is the game”.
Well, I have a “would you rather” question for you this month. Would you rather have a root canal or have your computer crash? While, I would again say I don’t like either option, that is what I was faced with last month. My computer did crash and the same week I was having a crown replaced with the possibility of a root canal. To add to my dilemma of no computer, I was doing a live p2P training in 3 days. Just little panic set in – well maybe more than a little. Thankfully, all my files were backed up and available. Between my external hard drives and my Carbonite subscription, I had access to all my working files. In addition my son, AJ, agreed to let me hijack his computer. As I write this my new laptop is in Anchorage, Alaska. I got Historian and Artisan installed on his computer and gathered all the files I needed for the live training. The crown has been replaced and it looks like I don’t need a root canal – for now.
A word to the wise – This is a good reminder to back up your files! It really does pay off. I was told once that there are two kinds of hard drives – hard drives that have failed and hard drives that have not failed yet.
One last would you rather question. Would you rather play with the Pixies or do laundry? Now, that is my kind of would you rather question!
