Today I spent three hours stressing about a major technical issue I was facing. Having spent three days at the Naace Conference 2012 I had made pages and pages of notes, all of which were stored on the iPad I took with me.
Naturally, I had failed to back up, sync or make a copy of these notes and after several failed attempts to start up the iPad this morning, I was presented with this screen:
Fearing the worst for my notes and the articulation of my thoughts, I Googled away for an answer I didn’t get. After hours of plugging into the mains and the MacBook with which it is synced, and several hard resets, the device magically sprung back to life and I could transfer the notes before disaster (inevitably) struck again. Hallelujah!
Things I’ve learnt today: back up everything! Without exception.
