Mozy Sez: Back The F:\ Up!

At least the T-shirts they're giving away at backthefup.net do. As the site says, "Screw Klondike® Bars, What Would You Do For A Back The F:\ Up T-Shirt?" Turns out what you have to do is something that promotes EMC's Mozy backup service, like writing a blog entry.
At least the T-shirts they're giving away at backthefup.net do. As the site says, "Screw Klondike® Bars, What Would You Do For A Back The F:\ Up T-Shirt?" Turns out what you have to do is something that promotes EMC's Mozy backup service, like writing a blog entry.To be more specific, you have to e-mail a proposal to Mozy, have them decide that, in their own words, your idea is awesome and doesn't suck, and then send your shipping information with proof you've followed through.

While "Back the f:\ up!" might be pushing the boundaries of good taste for some people, retail chain French Connection UK has gotten away with fcuk for years, so standards today must be pretty low.

This blog entry probably means I qualify for a free T-shirt, but somehow they never have my size (5X). So I'm putting together a video for its ComputerNightmare site where I can win a Mac Pro or trip to Hawaii for me and Ms. Claus just for making the best video about a computer's demise.

Trebuchet? Thermite? Skipping a MacBook across the Hudson? So many options and only 48 days to make my video.
