Lazarus Computer: It’s Baaaaack

This is an image of my desktop from 10:30pm tonight! Wow.

I’m amazed that this morning Apple gave me a fresh computer — and here 3 hours later I have a fully restored computer from exactly 2 weeks ago. I’m talking all files, settings, preferences, down to the desktop image, applications, Quicksilver settings, and Firefox bookmarks.

Using Apple’s “Time Machine” to bring the computer back from the dead impressed me. I’m going to be a little more diligent about backups from this experience. I lost a week’s worth of material — but a week isn’t bad compared to years of accumulated files.

Lord, thank You for sparing me the headache of reinstalling everything.

    We use time machine at work with typically Western Digital iBook external hard disk drives. They’re so useful. Time machine has saved me once or twice after that accidental deletion.
