Kim Komando sent me this letter that she got from one of her listeners:
Not really a question...What was I (NOT)thinking????? My husband and I
were in Hawaii on business when we heard there was a wildfire in Santa
Barbara — near our neighborhood. While trying to keep the panic down,
talking with the house sitter who was caring for our two dogs and
cat...I suddenly realized — OUR COMPUTERS!!! I had the laptop, but all
the real stuff was on my external drive. That little black box..sitting
on my desk in a house that could burn down. Our house sitter had
already evacuated and wouldn't be able to get back in — perhaps our
niece's husband could make his way to and in the house to retrieve the
box? He did get it but I couldn't help but think of the ramifications
had he not been successful.
The bottom line — I not only GOT how valuable Carbonite was — but I
also GOT how stupid of me to be sitting at the airport trying to get
back home and have to worry about losing all our data. It's day three
and my Carbonite is still backing up. Kim — many thanks for
recommending it and oh yes — we still have our house (and Carbonite).
chance, one of Carbonite's investors, Floyd Bradley, lives in the same
neighborhood and sent me this picture from his back yard. Better
believe he has Carbonite on ALL his computers!
