SuperDuper! “Get Smart” Offer
For the next two days Dave Nanian of Shirt Pocket Software is offering a 10% discount on his award-winning SuperDuper! backup and system recovery software for Mac OS X because ex-Apple superstar Guy Kawasaki recently suffered an expensive hard drive failure on his MacBook with no backup system in place. (The coupon code “getsmart” brings the price down to US$25.) SuperDuper! is an unregrettable purchase. Elena and I use it to back up our PowerBooks and lucky thing too: just 18 months after replacing the original hard drive on Yiddel — which died of catastrophic MFA thesis overload back in March last year — he is now again in the shop to replace the replacement. Thankfully this time we have a full disk image from the day before meltdown sitting on a firewire drive awaiting Yiddel’s return. When your hard drive dies (as everything must) you will attain enlightenment: but it’s easier if you just take it from the people who’ve been there and back up your computer. SuperDuper! is the best way to do that on a Mac.
