  • …and the day to assess your space for disaster potential is the same day as Beltane? One has to wonder about the synchronicity of that…

    • Never heard of Beltrane, Victoria. I think it’s more of “May Day” being a call of distress at sea and the celebration of May 1 as May Day

      • Here in Hawaii, we know it as “Lei Day” with lots of amazing leis produced to celebrate! But I got the pun you intended and loved it! May Day indeed!

        Thanks for providing this vital information about CERF+, Alyson and Craig.

  • We use mozy.com and back up every single day!

  • Mozy has a great reputation! I had a HORRID experience with Carbonite – talk about May Day May Day! Yikes.

    There are lots of FREE back-up sources for small amounts of data, some as much a 7 G’s for free. At least you can quickly – today! – get things like your clients list into something like dropbox (I actually am considering or other services while you pick out the best long-term solution.

    I just happen to have been researching this subject last week, so here is a link for a very recent review by PC mag. Recent is key! There are some old reviews of OLD versions of some of these products and that will not be helpful. http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2288745,00.asp

    JUST do something today. I live in hurricane country and we get lots of warning so for that type of event so my external back-up is a good start, but the cloud is the real back-up.
