Back-up your files!

failed harddisks

There are a few certainties in life - death, taxes and harddisk failure. It is not a matter of if, but when. The new generation of SSD harddisks are a big improvement on magnetic disks, but they can still fail. Imagine for a second that the harddisk of the computer you are reading this on died right now. What would you lose?

If your harddisk dies you can easily re-install PerfectTablePlan on another computer and retrieve your licence key. But your table plan data is a different story. If it was only stored on your harddisk, it’s gone. So you should always make a back-up copy of your plan (.tp) files to somewhere other than your harddisk, for example:

  • another computer
  • memory stick
  • online solutions such as Dropbox
  • email it to a friend or yourself

We get a few stressed emails from people who have lost all their data a few days before their event. Please don’t be one of them. In fact, do a backup now!

Nepal school sponsorship

Bampti school construction

Bampti school finished

In 2020 we celebrated 15 years of PerfectTablePlan by sponsoring the Juniper Trust to build a kindergarten at Bampti in Nepal. The school is in an area that was badly affected by the 2015 earthquake and has had little help from the Nepalese government. It took a lot longer to build than planned, due to COVID. But it was finally finished at the end of 2021.

The Juniper Trust are currently raising money to build schools, plant trees and purchase school equipment and uniforms. The trust is run by volunteers and 100% of donations go to good causes. If you feel like contributing you can donate here.

And finally…

An interesting read from 2014:
