My computer crashed a couple of months ago. I’ve gotten a bit lazy with trip updates and races, but some of it can be attributed to the computer crashing. I was using Windows 7 on that machine originally, then it wanted to upgrade to Windows 10. I thought nothing of it, and gave it a shot. The computer lasted about a month then crashed. It lasted about 6 years, so I think we got our moneys worth.
My biggest problem was that I didn’t back up the PC. Music, pictures, old W2 forms, etc. Huge fail. One piece of advice I would give myself if I could go back in time: back up all your shit! It never seems like that big of a deal until you need it. Kind of like insurance. No big deal.. oh wait.. crap!
