    Turbans, turbines! C’mon, gang. Lay off poor Anubis!

    (Aside to Justin: Always back-up. In your profession, one of those commercial back-up services would be a wise investment!)

    Justin Let us know if you recover them all. We want to see them. If not, I have my own archives going back to 17 Nov.,2007.

    Justin, Gotta invest in one of those automatic back-up systems. They do all of the work and you get all of the security.

    BACKUP, BACKUP, BACKUP I’m in publishing and have 2 external hard drives and programs to automatically copy any file that changes. I would have been out of business by now or at the nearest Ha Ha Hilton without that backup. Love your comic. Just discovered it a couple three months ago. Still trying to catch up to the beginning. Good Luck and keep ticklin’.

    An external storage drive is always a good option too.

    It was an external hard drive that failed. I usually always back up and copy everything, but… for some reason I hadn’t backed up lately and there ya go. Lack of diligence bites me in the tail. But I’ve selected some really fun repeats from way back, hopefully y’all haven’t seen them in a while. Sorry.

    Gotta feel sorry for Anubis, and thats why you ALWAYS backup Justin.

    Justin, whatever you put up here will be enjoyed. I have two external hard drives for my photo collection. But that’s just stuff. Get a service!

    Justin knows about backup; he just has the same problem we all have - DOING the backup. I have a 500 GB internal, a 200GB external, and a 1 TB external. Didn’t do me a bit of good when the original 200GB failed and I hadn’t backed up the files on it (was going to, of course, soon). Now, anything important is not only on 2 different HDs, it’s also burned to DVDs and saved.

    I just remembered something funny. When the floppy discs first came out, they were like magic. 1.44 MBs. You could put any program in the world on one of those - more memory than a person would EVER need, if you had a few floppies (I think my first regular computer only had a few MBs actual storage). Now my computer doesn’t even HAVE a floppy connection (or a parallel port, for that matter). I bought a floppy ext. player just for old time’s sake, but certainly can’t do too much with them now.

    Thanks for that info about the storage drive Justin, if trusting them isn’t a good idea then, I guess burning everything to DVD-Rs might be the move.

    I’ll be at ComicCon on Friday. Signing and sketching at booth #1930 from 1 to 2 PM. Stop by and say hi.

    I’ve got a Windows Home Server, backs up at 3 AM every day. The only thing I’m missing is offsite storage.

    Hey Justin,

    1) Backing up Joe’s offer, my archive goes back two additional days to Nov 15, 2007 although my files, as probably is Joe’s, are downloaded images from gocomics, not your originals.

    2) Multiple backups are the only safe way to go and one of them really should be off site. Online backup is not only off site but is convenient, can be automated and can be free.

    One of the sites that I use [] is quite easy to use, professionally operated and is free. A free account (email address only is required), offers 1 GB of private storage and 25 MB uploads. There are paid accounts with more features but 1 GB should be enough for many years worth of images. If you want to ensure privacy protection I would suggest “zipping” your images into an encrypted, password protected file and then uploading the archive. Even better would be to establish two different online providers and backup regimens - “just in case”.

    If I can be of any help, click on to get my contact info.
