Published on May 29, 2019 By dgreenbaum

As anyone in Lawrence, Topeka, or Kansas City knows, we had one heck of a storm last night.  I spent a good part of the evening in the basement.  That wasn’t fun.  I’m sure you didn’t have fun either. This bad weather is an excellent time to talk though about the importance of offsite backup, […]

Yes, We Still Recommend Backblaze

Published on February 24, 2019 By dgreenbaum

Backblaze has been our preferred automatic safety backup product for years.  Recently they contacted existing customers to let them know the rates would be increasing.  Compared to their competitors who increased rates while decreasing services, or simply went out of business, Backblaze’s price increase is modest. They’ve had the same pricing for 11 years, so that hardly […]

Lessons from Houston: Why You Need Better Backup

Published on September 3, 2017 By dgreenbaum

The damage from Hurricane Harvey has been heartbreaking.  Sadly one of the casualties of the flood has been people’s data.  Not just business data like customer lists, orders, and invoices but personal stuff like irreplaceable digital pictures and documents.  While disasters aren’t preventable, data loss is.

Backing up your computer: Apple After Hours series

Published on June 13, 2011 By dgreenbaum

I’ll admit I’ve never watched “Sex and the City”. Seriously. However, when the show was popular, clients kept telling me of this episode about backups and I finally found the video on Youtube Most of our computer skills we learn or figure out for ourselves. We stumble through and maybe take a class or two, […]

Eleventh Day of Christmas: Online Backup Service

Published on December 23, 2010 By dgreenbaum

Nothing says I love you like “I don’t want you to lose your stuff.” More than one client says to me “My computer is my life.” or “I can’t live without it”. Yet they don’t actually protect it against loss. Like losing weight or quitting smoking, I hear clients always say “I should be backing […]
