An Argument For Film

On Friday I dropped my Macbook Pro from the dizzying height of 6 inches from the ground.  My hard drive is a total loss.  My last backup is from over a month ago.  My bad.  Especially bad given that I come from an IT background and know better.

In any case, I have lost some music, some movies, some TV shows, some applications, and some files.  And photos from the last month or so.  Luckily however 99% or the photos I take are on film.  Therefore, I can simply rescan the negatives or slides and I am back in business.
