getButterfly Logo getButterfly code wrangling since 2005

A while ago I bought an USB flash drive. Lately, I’ve been storing some materials for a new site, and some other important data (such as a site engine in development). I had no backup anywhere, and a couple of days ago, it crashed. It just crashed, and all my data was gone down the drain.

Years ago, I learned to save all my projects every few steps, again after some data loss. Right now, I will learn to always backup everything, not just stuff on my USB flash drive.
