So for those who know us, and now you all, we own a 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan which we really love. It's comfortable, practical, full of great features (including a cassette player!), and it's in nearly perfect condition. We got it for a great price a year ago, put new tires on it, had all the engine seals redone, had it all checked and tuned and such. Awesome!
Marketing is a powerful thing. It trains us what we should believe about products, and alters our behavior over time. Let that sink in a bit. ... Now let's talk about how this applies to a couple of technology hardware marketing messages taught to us, that might not actually be true.
I'm excited to announce that I'll be partnering with the Saxx Underwear company to provide IT services starting next week! The company is based in Vancouver, BC, but has a satellite office here in Portland, OR where I'll be spending some time each week and may also provide remote support for the Vancouver office. The people of this company are great and have been very welcoming. I look forward to helping them and their company to progress forward.

If you're not backing up your personal data regularly, you're risking losing it all.
Computer hard drives are great, as long as they keep working. But every piece of hardware eventually will break down, and often that means losing all your data - documents, pictures, videos, music etc. You MUST backup your data in an automatic way, and ideally even in multiple ways.
An external hard drive and also to the cloud. External hard drive gives you a second drive so multiple failures is much less likely, but what if you have a fire in your home... both can be lost. Backing up also to a reputable and secure cloud based service such as Dropbox, Box, OneDrive, or some other service is highly recommended.
If you need guidance and assistance in making choices and setting up the automation, let me know. I'd be happy to assist.
