Protect Your Computer

I've read a number of blog posts concerning power outage woes. Several years ago, our new computer was nearly destroyed by a daily loss of power. My late husband went to our local office supply store and picked up a battery back-up.

The brand we purchased is the APC Power Chute. Whenever the power goes off even for a few seconds, the battery kicks in so you can power down the computer in a safe manner. The battery lasts about 3 years, so it's economical.

Good idea!

Hi Annie -

I'm all for prevention. Why add to stress levels by waiting for a crisis? And when does a crisis hit? At the most inconvenient times - like when you're about to email a submission or working on a project.
