Warning… rant ahead.
I was sitting here minding my own business, having a happy Friday, playing fetch with Gretchen at work, when I got the bright idea to dig through some old minutes to get some data someone had requested.
Boom! The data-eating digital monster strikes again. I thought it was just me… I don’t claim to be the greatest when it comes to navigating through the administrative, “back door” portions of our website. Wrong. Important stuff is GONE, without even a trail that it was ever uploaded… and it was.
This isn’t the first time this has happened. It isn’t the only problem we’re having either. Thanks for listening to my fussin’, but talking about it isn’t making me feel better after all, so I think I’m going to start to ponder what I’ll fix for dinner or something equally exciting.
Any big weekend plans that might distract me, even for a moment?
Oh – and about the title? Consider this a public service announcement and back up your important stuff, even if it isn’t your responsibility. Some day, you might be the incoming president who has to cry over digitally eaten stuff from years ago.
