Why I love (or will learn to love) google docs

Posted by ryancas on May 26, 2008

Yesterday started like any other day… The sun came up. I woke up some time later, gathered my thoughts, poured my fruit loops, added a dash of milk and watched some sports highlights. It was shaping up to be a fine day. I plugged in my old Sony point n’ shoot camera to transfer some pictures from a few months ago that had been trapped on the camera due to a lost (but since found) cord. All was well.

Then, my laptop decided that it had other plans. Windows.Officially.Crashed. I was shocked; it was only 4 months young. So now I’m left without a computer for a few days, I can’t access my files from Norton’s Online file-backup until I get it back so I’m left up the creek. Had I been using Google Docs I would not be worrying as much about the whereabouts of my files.

Needless to say this makes me want to cry… well not cry, but weep… loudly. I was hoping to start my final project using Jing and Photoshop this weekend, but that’s gonna have to be paused for the time being.

  1. Good luck retrieving your files, Ryan. I hope nothing, or at least nothing important, is lost.

    And yes … Google Docs is so nice just for this reason sometimes.

    on the plus side… it reminded me to finish my Tech.Task

  3. This is a sad story Ryan. Good luck on retrieving your files.

    I don’t use google for all of my work but it is handy for sharing and collaborating on files. The online back up feature is nice but I try not to put too many important or confidential documents up on docs because I am still kind of worried about 3rd party applications. Most likely Google will never crash but I still wonder. My most important documents get backup’ed to my flash drive every week or when ever I remember to get to it.
