But my files are saved in "The Cloud". Oh no they aren't!

From a great article on The Register - about people taking responsibility (or lack thereof) for their own data & files:

...The user began the demonstration, fired up Word, and "started typing... and then promptly closed Word (ignoring the 'Are you sure?' prompt)."

Jason queried the user: "Why didn't you save the file?"

"Why do I need to do that?"

"Because you have to – if you don't save the file then... you haven't saved the file."

"I don't have to – it's in The Cloud."

"OK, where in The Cloud is it?"

"How should I know? We were told that everything would get saved in The Cloud."

Erm... The moral of this story, is save, save & save again. 
Oh, and backup as well!
