So, I was at the studio the other day with my friend Will and he got the funniest message from his friend from Cali...I think his name is Brian. So, Brian was working on some art on his computer for hours and, of course, hadn't saved it. Well, he shares his studio with a musician and Brian moved his foot and nudged a mic stand with his toe causing it to fall over. It hit the shelves and knocked a book off which fell right on the off/on switch of the power strip for his computer shutting everything down.
While we were cracking up about this he told me about the time our other studiomate Syd was working on a piece start to finish on the computer. And again, he didn't save it once the entire time. He finished and called the others in the studio over to critique it. Once he was happy with it he went to close PhotoShop and when it asked if he wanted to save it he hit "don't save" without thinking. I've never heard Syd raise his voice or cuss but apparently he was cussing up a storm after that.
So, kiddies, always save your work.
