  1. Michael Threw A Fit and his phone, iPhone high impact to wall = Non Working iPhone  ↩
  2. If you didn’t know, it’s important to do a local backup two.  ↩
  3. Moving Websites and Data Los, one of the reasons you need a backup of your site.  ↩
  4. so side note here, Damashe suggested on this podcast episode to check this app out especially for use with one drive, a service we are paying for but not using. It was very quick and easy to set ARQ up, and well worth the investment for the pease of mind of having an offsite backup system in place.  ↩
  5. We were notified by a user on twitter that accessibility issues prevent users from setting backblaze up on computers running windows with NVDA and Jaws, As of the time of writing these show notes, we don’t know if this user ever got backblaze set up or not. If your using AT, and Backblaze, and had any problems getting it set up however found work arounds, please drop a comment below to let us know your findings.  ↩
