*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Experienced, talented, highly versatile features writer and editor seeks a home. Having freelanced for about four years now, I’m ready to hang my shingle (as it were) on a warm wall in an office, cubicle or newsroom and dedicate my entire career to getting The Next Big Story (and the next one after that, and the one after that …). I seek challenges. Specifically, I look to write about the previously unexplored (when at all possible). I want to enlighten, enumerate, surprise and open eyes. I have the grit, the stamina, the talent and the knowhow. Briefly, about me: I have spent the better part of the last 20 years as a writer and communicator in a number of capacities: marketing, branding, copywriting, journalism, PR and advertising. I have done pretty much everything communications-wise: written articles, ads, white papers, press releases, brochures and Web sites, to name just a few. But my true specialty is writing (and editing) features—articles of anywhere between 4,000 and 8,000 words that expose the truth, shed light, articulate and/or inform. Give me a chance. I will not let you down. Full time preferred but open to freelancing if the price and situation are right.

*** Just getting around to more Hard advice:

Hi, Ned. You may want to consider investing in one of these online back-up

services, which were recommended by a PR firm with which I consult.

BackUpright is a bit more user-friendly; Connected.com is cheaper. I use

Connected and it's handy – updating once a day at the time I set it to

connect(though I've never had a hard drive failure – knock wood – so I

haven't had to retrieve all my files).

1) www.connected.com

2) www.backupright.com

Best of luck trying to recover everything.

*** For a hard driving man:

Ned –

Sorry about your crash…I recently switched from MacIntosh to Pc and bought a DELL. I owned it for two whole weeks and everything went bad on it. A tech showed up with a whole new hard drive, motherboard, and when he replaced everrything, the keyboard broke. I was down for a whole week.

There is no “luckily” with warranties. they take up all your time BEFORE sending out a technician…it was reminiscent of Elaine from Seinfeld interviewing men to qualify as “sponge-worthy”.

Just a thought. Good luck

Best to you,

Marti Davis

*** Hard truths:

Ned,

Michael Scott, Marilyn Canna's Friend, recommends Drive Savers in CA. They're SPECTACULAR — I've used them three times and they've saved my life (all on disc) as many times.

Great service. No charge for an estimate.

I'm a Mac guy, but they do windows, too, I'm sure. Worth a comparative check, anyway.

I SO empathize with you.

I'm buying a new Mac just so I can have Time Machine and never ever be without a backup.

Mike

Michael P. Scott

*** Cold hard truth:

Ned,

Here's a trick that worked for me when my laptop's hard drive crashed. I

have no idea if it will work for you, but I guess it's worth a try. We put

the hard drive in the freezer and we were able to get it back working for

short periods of time while it was cold. (My husband read about this tip on

the internet somewhere. Our IT guy didn't even know about it, but tried it

and it worked.)

Good luck.

You should invest in one of those USB-connected external drives that can autmomatically back up your machines disk – they offer the benefit of portability as well. COSTCO sells on, 120GB, I think for about a hundred bucks – I saw advertised a Western Digital model with 500GB for $150 somewhere (but you may have had to be at Circuit City or Best Buy at 3am this past Friday to get one)

*** From Alix Hornig:

Ned,

I really enjoyed this morning’s JOTW and I felt compelled to write and tell you. Thought I’d also share the following quote with you, received through my other weekly email newsletter inspiration: Oprah.com. Although I know that she’s a TV personality that you either love or hate (I happen to fall into the first group) I thought the quote I found waiting for me in my inbox this morning was a good one to share with everyone as the holiday stress begins to pile up.

Best,

Alix
