Backup Tutorial - How to backup your Facebook, Google, Linkedin accounts, email, bookmarks, phone contacts, and more


Hi Everyone!

Many people think of backups after something bad happens to their computer, tablet, cell phone or other digital device.
All it takes is 5-10 minutes a week and you can save yourself big headaches if something unexpected happens to your digital world.

When was the last time you backed up your Facebook, Google and Linkedin accounts? Many people do not even know you can back them up.

Do you have a copy of the contact / phone list in your cell phone? You have loads of photos that you took on your last vacation.
Did you copy them on to your computer or disk-on-key? What would happen if you lose your cell phone today?

On your old computer's hard disk there are anniversary photos that have never been backed up and are irreplaceable.
Why wait till it is too late?

This week, I created a backup tutorial that will help you backup your valuable data. The initial tutorial covers 8 topics and
I may add more in the near future.

The tutorial address is:

Feedback is welcome!

Please share, thank you!

Shabbat Shalom,
Jacob

Educational resources about Chanukah and over 500 Chanukah videos


Hi Everyone!

Chanukah, the Jewish Festival of Lights, is observed for
eight days, beginning on the evening of the 25th day of
the Hebrew month of Kislev. This year Chanukah starts
Saturday night, December 24, 2016.

Chanukah is a wonderful holiday of renewed dedication,
faith, hope and spiritual light. It's a holiday that says:
"Never lose hope." Chanukah commemorates the victory of a
small band of Maccabees over the pagan Syrian-Greeks who
ruled over Israel.

The Chanukah Page includes lesson sites in several languages, videos, songs, Chanukah trivia quiz, English Hebrew vocabulary lists,
recipes, games, humor, photos, clipart, coloring pages and a map of the sites of the Maccabees 166-161 BCE.

The address is:
www.jr.co.il/hotsites/chanukah.htm

The Chanukah Video Page has links to over 500 cool Chanukah videos:
www.jr.co.il/videos/chanukah-videos.htm

The video page will be updated several times a week as we get closer to Chanukah.
Suggestions for new video additions are welcome.

Enjoy!

Please share these holiday resources. Thank You!

Have a good day,
