What will happen to the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette if my computer crashes?
The snow is coming down. The announcer on the radio says we’re supposed to get between three to six inches. I’m still determined to go to the public library to turn in one book and to check out a couple of more books. But I’ve decided not to walk to the library. (It’s only a twenty-minute walk from my apartment building to the library.) I’ll take a bus. Because I’m a senior citizen (living in Pennsylvania), I have a life-time bus pass. I ride for free. So, I may as well take the bus. The 54, 71A and the 71C pass my apartment building on their way to the public library.
But I digress.
So, what will happen to the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette if my computer crashes? Well, from everything that I’ve read about the Internet and computers, it’s not a matter of if my computer will crash, but when my computer will crash.
Verizon is my Internet Provider. I’ve recently activated my online backup system that is a part of my Verizon package. The system backs up my photo folder every day.
The host for The Gazette is HostGator. Right now HostGator backs up all the data and all the files of The Gazette every week. In about ten days I’ll up grade to a package that HostGator offers that will backup all the data and all the files of The Gazette every day.
