There’s also a brand spankin’ new blog post waiting for you. It’s called, How To Organize Your Computer’s Files for Maximum Efficiency.
You should be backing up your computer all the time. Full stop. If you’re not taking the time to protect your important files, then you’re just setting yourself up for a bad time in the future. Hard drives fail. It’s one of the things they do. Let’s talk about a couple different ways you can start backing up your computer regularly today.
We’re wrapping things up with what I’m watching, reading, and listening to this week. It’s a great assortment of media that’s worth your time.

The Dandy Newsletter—11/03/20
I have a simple request for you today: Please vote.
This isn’t the place for me to tell you whom I think you should vote for, and ultimately, it’s your choice and not mine, but still, please vote.
Be safe out there. Respect others. Vote with your whole heart and conscience. It’s important and means so much. It’s what you should do.
(For those readers who are not citizens of the U.S.A. and therefore can’t vote in this election, please forgive this interruption to what you would normally expect from my weekly dispatch. Truth be told, there’s not a whole lot else on my mind this week. If I tried to write about any other subject, I think you’d be able to tell that I was distracted; this newsletter wouldn’t be up to its normal standards.
I appreciate your time and continued support, readers around the world. I promise that I’ll be back next week with something you’re more familiar with.)
Organize your data... to the max!
There’s a new blog post waiting for you. Let’s do a dance! 🎉
I’ve lost count of the number of computer desktops I’ve seen that are strewn with a gobsmacking number of files and folders. I’ve also seen file systems that are less “system” and more “Let me just throw everything in any ol’ place. Finding it later is future me’s problem.”
For someone who enjoys keeping a well-organized computer, this sort of behavior is not only grating, it’s disappointing. I don’t believe it takes a lot of time or work to keep a tidy computer. The only effort you have to expend is that which it takes to not be lazy.
Organizing the files and folders on your computer not only help things look good, it’ll also boost your efficiency to new heights. Imagine not having to spend minutes looking around for a particular file, and multiple times a day, because you know exactly where it is. Keeping an organized computer can help speed up your day and make you feel happier whenever you sit in front of it. Give this post a read and start living a cleaner, happier computer life.
If you ever want to throw some suggestions my way, then send me a reply to this email. They’re always wonderful to receive.
Seriously friend, I'd love to hear from you.
Until next time, stay dandy, cat.
