People who use computers come from all walks of life, work across all industries, and hail from anywhere in the world. Yet they all share one common experience:
The sinking feeling you get when the power goes out and you haven’t saved your work.
It’s a rare occurrence, but a memorable one for all the wrong reasons. Once it happens, you lament the loss of data and the time you wasted since everything was backed up, while also remembering the mantra that you didn’t follow: Save your work often. The minutes spent restarting, logging back in and finding your place again are filled with helpless frustration. And there’s really nothing you can do at that point. The power was interrupted, and you paid the price.
