syncbackThat’s what happened to my laptop last week: The dreaded “Fan Error.” Just because of the apparent weariness of one $5 fan part, the entire Thinkpad grinds to a screeching halt. Fortunately, I had been using a simple tool, described earlier here in Brigada, entitled, Syncback. See the freeware version at…

Fortunately, the program had my back covered. In contrast to certain other times in my life, when everything was at risk, SyncBack had been hard at work each night, preparing me for just such a possible disaster. My laptop is still in Atlanta in the repair facility tonight, but I’m working from all backed-up files, still delivering you this Brigada Today on time.

What if *your* fan collapsed tonight — or any other moving part in your laptop. Has something covered your back? If not, it’s only a matter of time. As we’ve said before, there are two kinds of computer users: Those who have already lost data at one time or another — and those who *will*. Please… stop leaving it to chance. Get a solution today… and back up your hard work.

In other news… It’s nearly Christmas. In honor of backups, we present tonight another retro throwback piece of Brigada, first featured in the Dec. 16th, 2001 edition, courtesy Brigada participant, “Mark.” (Thank you Mark, wherever you are tonight!) To see the artwork correctly, make sure you view using a fixed type, such as “Courier New.”
