I had a dream that I tried signing up for vaccinations from some site and my computer got infected with malware and I immediately had to wipe it.

This is my reminder to back up your computer regularly folks! I'm doing it right now :bowie_sweat:

@david i've devised a solution using syncthing to make sure my top most important files are always backed up, to which they go to my raspberry pi and my phone every time i update a file

thus meaning if my laptop catches fire, i at least don't lose my files

@david it also comes with the convienence of my camera files being backed up automatically too, so i can post my pictures from my laptop without having to type long ass words on my phone lol

@david I guess it's better than the opposite of trying to fix a computer virus and being interrupted by suddenly getting a person virus :p
