Big Al gets a Time Capsule

So it's not what you think. I didn't get one of those futuristic tubes where I'm going to place keepsakes of the year 2008 and then open them up in 2058. I bought an Apple Time Capsule 1TB. This means that I can automatically and reliably backup all of my useless computer stuff: pictures, porn, financial stuff, porn, important docs, porn, music, porn, movies, porn, etc.

So this Time Capsule is 1TB. To put that into perspective that's watching 1500 movies back-to-back or listening to a new song around the clock for about 1000 days in a row without have to hear a repeat.

I had a old hard drive that used to backup all of my important docs (porn), but it has been really flaky lately so I decided to replace it before it was too late. Anyways, to make a long story short I moved everything from the old hard drive to the new Apple Time Capsule and after a few days of running fine the Apple Time Capsule stopped working. (I had also erased my old hard drive since I was confident that the Apple Time Capsule was going to work.) I was pretty depressed that I lost all of my music (porn). Luckily it was a known problem and I spent a couple of days trying a few things out and my important movies (porn) came back. Disaster averted!
(I almost did a kung fu karate kick to the Apple Time Capsule with my Nike's. I would have if I had 2 purrsss.)

Big Al Public Service Announcement: If you have important stuff (porn) make sure you offload it to a dedicated online storage. It'll take you a few days to get it up there, but you'll be avoiding a number of sleepless nights crying uncontrollably over your lost documents (porn).
