Rise Above the Storm And You Will Find the Sunshine

“Rise above the storm and you will find the sunshine.”
-Mario Fernandez

Yesterday I wrote about the email problem – storm – that I experienced. Basically my emails were cleared due a power outage.

Today I saw first rays of sun in this situations. Here’s some of them:

  • Even though I didn’t manage to find the lost emails I can consider being lucky that I didn’t l lose more than few days of emails, nothing extremely critical didn’t happen.
  • Couple of people have already thanked me and said that they immediately made email backups. One guy said he had waited for couple weeks, and after seeing my post he took action. So, it looks like the post inspired other people to make backups. Maybe this means some other people don’t lose data.
  • I’m glad this email problem occurred now. What if I had removed the old posts from the other email program (luckily I didn’t) and only had an old backup. I’m glad this problem occurred now before I even finished moving. If it would have happened a week or month later, I might face a much bigger problem.
  • My post has generated discussion. Maybe the story will spread bit more and act as an example that things like this can happen.

Rise above the storm and you will find the sunshine. I think that’s well said.
