Well I experienced my first piece of relatively large disappointment today.
Was in Photoshop working on a quick piece for my website when all of a sudden we had a power outage just as I was saving my work. Reboot my computer only to find that the file is now corrupted with no chance of getting it back, oh joy! It sucks as I planned on having it finished tonight.
I think the worst part though was that the outage lasted for quite literally one second. A second without power led to hours of work lost.
What have I learned? Saving frequently isn't enough, you need to make backups of them just as frequently.
How many of you have had similar experiences? I'm willing to bet a lot of you.
