Do you have a disaster plan (or plans)?
If so, what do they cover?
If not, why not?
I finally gave up on the various different local/physical back-up solutions I'd been trying to get working and started using an offline backup system (Carbonite, if you're curious).
I haven't bought the service yet, but I just ran a restore and it was pretty damn quick, so I probably will.
Eventually, I'll figure out something local/physical to keep more permanent stuff, like my thousands of travel pictures. Probably next time I upgrade the computer, I'll get a DVD burner.
I have an "ICE" entry on my cell phone, and my home # is listed as "1 - Home," so it's the second thing you see in my phone list (my email address at Yahoo being the first as it accepts mail from my phone, so I can send myself phone pics; not sure why it shows up first).
I seem to recall discussing our ZEPs (Zombie Escape Plans) but now I can't find where.
I have a little notebook next to my bed with high priority items I'd grab if I had 20 minutes to pack & get out of the house because it might get destroyed. I know where a couple of easy-to-pack bags are (a couple are in the closet, right next door, empty & neatly folded, while my "luggage" bag is in the next room down, mostly empty).
That's pretty much it, I think. I don't have a meet-up place with my BF or anyone else, for that matter. I don't have a "house is on fire" grab bag yet. (Insurance papers, car titles, medical info, etc.) I do have a fire safe that contains a few important things.
I dunno. I feel like there's more shit I should do to be prepared so I worry about it less and can just tuck the memory away like a $50 bill in the bottom of my wallet, recalled only when I'm about to get towed.
