Back Your Sh#& Up!

iTunesImage via Wikipedia

So I've spent weeks now working on my iTunes database, and I've added 27 GB of music files. Coworker S. has asked me at least once a week if I've done a backup of all my changes. And, at least once a week, I look down at my feet and reply, "No, and I really need to, I know." I'm the first person to ask others if they've done a backup recently, and I have absolutely no sympathy for those who don't.

I'd be really pissed if I lost all those changes. Like sit and a corner and cry kind of pissed. However, I still hadn't done one yet. Duh!

Well today he asked me, again, and I had the same bad answer. He replied, "You know, it's like one of your users typing a 20 page document, never once saving it, and the computer crashes. " Ok. That put it into perspective. Just to be sure I got the point, he sent me an email, with a blank body, but a subject line that read: "BACK YOUR SH#& UP".

Alright already! I am, as we speak, backing the sh#& up.

I always, always, always back up my music collection, because it is huge and took forever to acquire. Plus, I don't even know what songs are in it, so I wouldn't be able to reconstruct things.

Luckily, eMusic lets you re-download songs when you lose some (I have before).

I still don't think I know what it means to back something up. Except for my ass.

The post title cracks me up. I can't help but wonder how many naughty searches will wind up here.

I have yet to back up my laptop. It's been over a year and a half since I got it.

So you would be the perfect person to ask...how do I back up my library for my iPod? It is a daunting task and I have no idea how to even begin to start...
