| Surveys suggest that up to 90% of home
| computer users do not back up their data.
| That is a pretty frightening statistic
| bearing in mind how valuable and precious
| users' files are. Computer users who do not
| backup their files are at risk of losing
| all of their personal and irreplaceable
| documents. The hard drive in a PC can
| malfunction at any time, sometimes without
| any warning at all. Alternatively, the
| computer's hard disk can be damaged by an
| accident, a fire, flood, power cut, or
| infected by a virus.

| Used Itemswithing the last 2 weeks plus
| ther Recently Used Itemsthat don
| appear in the most used. Its not the
| biggest hack but I find it awesome for
| myself. I really can get almost 50% of the
| things i want by just right clicking an app
| in Docky. It the app is closed or the
| document is not opened you have a good
| chance of finding it in the jumplist by
| just right clicking on the app responsible
| for it `----

Tyler on Ubuntu: Nautilus

| With the release of Nautilus-Elementary
| 2.30 I've been thinking quite a bit about
| File Browsers. I did a comparison of the 4
| file browsers I see the most often,
| (Finder, Nautilus, Explorer, and Nautilus-
| Elementary), but now I'd like to focus a
| bit more on just Nautilus and Nautilus-
| Elementary.
