left my computer’s power cord in a client’s office.

Nearly every professional backs up his or her business data. But if your computer gets lost, stolen, power-surged or, as in my case, unpower-surged, you’re still out of business.

Inexpensive desktop PCs start below $200.00 (Mac users, sorry, it’s definitely more than that).

A pretty good investment to keep the wheels on the bus going round and round!
