2 days ago, the computer at my work place got infected with a computer virus. It’s a fortune that I was able to get it out of the computer. It was a misfortune that I wasn’t able to get any work done since I was scanning my computer, and I didn’t want anything to disrupt the scan.
My computer housed practically all the source code ever written in my department. Alright, I’m exaggerating, but it’s not far from the truth. If the hard disk was wiped out, let’s just say either I will be assured of another year of contract, or I’ll be out of a job.
So anyway, a reminder for everyone reading this: Have you backed up your computer?
