Back It Up

Postby Matt » 09 May 2011, 09:16

Your data isn't going to back itself up; that much is certain.

I hope that iguana marmite porn doesn't have any surprise dicks.

Raise your hand if you thought about backing up your computer as soon as the video ended.

I LOVED this video. Particularly Paul's line about not wanting to lose his soul because of his tax returns. I laughed out loud so many times during this...

Also, nice to see Dale return.

Interesting new hair style on Dale, think I preferred his HUSTLE style, but his acting and voice talents have certainly not diminished for the trim.

So Graham has "donkey with midgets," and Paul has "iguana marmite porn," now what if we were to put those together!

No no no, The correct question is, What is jers... insert duck joke here?

Also, Fun fact, i've lost well over 10 hdd's in the last 5 years, still yet to make a backup... my spare drive just sits there till one crashes, then it replaces it and i think "Oh shit, better go get a drive to make a backup, don't want that to happen again."
My current spare drive is being used to prop up my monitor and make it lean forward as i am below the desk..sorta.

Yeah our laptop harddrive has broken down about 6-7 times since we bought it back in the Christmas of 2009 .

Mine is more due to the fact that it has no sides... and a shredded top to the case, That and my second drive doesn't actually fit in the tower so it sits next to it on the desk, which i smoke at...
You'd think with limited money to keep fixing it i'd treat it better.

i get the feeling that the idea for the video came form somthing that happened to paul the only question is did he lose work or "other" things
Last night I was in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling.

Ours is that we don't treat that well either, Paul's joke about the cat can pretty much some up what wwe do when we aren't using it on our warm, soft comforters...

Hard drives are cheep and software exists to make backing up automatic. If you have a Mac there is no reason you should not be using Time Machine. A few people at my work including myself have had issues with our iMacs and having backups have allowed us to continue working with no loss of data.

It's great to see Dale back as the third-best portrayal of the Devil in history.

Oh, and the rest of the video was hilarious too.

Part of me likes to think that computer care PSA Kathleen and marmite/iguana Kathleen are the same person.

Yeah, this video was good enough for me to take a moment to distract myself from other endeavors.

I second this proposal...hang on a second...ah!

Here we go:

For quick and easy reference. :mrgreen:


Props to Dale for his persistently EXCELLENT performance, I liked 'thinking back' Paul stroking his chin as he recalls WHY he never made a back-up, and the stinger is best described by his last line of dialogue. :)

Interestingly, I noted that the screen went black as if the video was supposed to end...but the audio continued for a couple of seconds. My hearing isn't great, but I don't recall anything but the 'clip's soundtrack' so I guess it was just a glitch or error?

And for the record, I have only occasionally made backups in the past, and only ever had to use any ONCE in...wow, over twenty years. For the most part, I don't HAVE anything irreplaceable on my current desktop. I even have the still-functioning hard drive from my last iteration (the mobo and PSU blew on that one) waiting to transfer over 'old data'...it's sitting in a desk drawer.

Essentially, there's no POINT for me to set up any sort of backup; currently I have That Big Project™ I'm working on, but any progress I make in that gets saved locally, remotely and also transferred to a usb stick for safe keeping.

I think it was on purpose. Many films/videos do that for effect and whatnot.

Maybe not, but that's what I thought when they did it.
