Lesson of the Day

My MacBook crashed.  Well sort of.  I'm definitely not tech savvy enough to understand the explanation I got from the Apple store, so I'm just going to say it crashed.  Why is it when ever I go to the Apple store, I feel like I know what they are talking about, but the second I walk out, I'm back to being computer dumb again?  Anyway, I know something went wrong when I tried to run the software update last week and bad things started happening.  I've been without my computer for about a week and a half.  It's not fun.  Luckily, I had my iPad and iPhone, but they just aren't the same.  I was also able to back up everything on my external hard drive the day my computer started to go crazy.  I am beyond grateful I was able to do that because I would have lost everything had I not.  So what's the lesson (almost learned the hard way)---back up your stuff!  I have an external hard drive and I'm fairly happy with that.  But, I'm also curious to see if there is a better way to do it.  Does anyone use Mobile Me or any other sort of software to back up stuff?

And, I bought into the hype and read Hunger Games.  It's beyond bizarre and disturbing.  I liked it, but I fully admit that if I had not heard so much about it, I would have put it down after the first chapter.  That being said, I want to see the movie because I have all these visions in my head (not like crazy visions) or images of scenes from the book that I'm curious to see how they are portrayed in the movie.  And now that I'm done with that weird book, who can suggest something else?
