My first semester in seminary my computer crashed. It was awesome. I had a paper due on Monday and on Sunday night my computer crashed. I lost all of my research, the paper (that had been done for days), and lots of other important things.

I just renewed my annual subscription to Carbonite a few days ago. If you're interested in Carbonite, I'm thrilled to offer you 2 free months when you sign up. You can try for free for 15 days and then sign up for 14 months for just $59. To get two months free, click this link or any of the "Carbonites" above. It's a great deal and I'm excited to share it with you.
Full disclosure: Carbonite really doesn't know who I am. I just want you to know about a great product that I really enjoy. I was sent a link when I renewed my subscription that gave my friends 2 free months. For everyone who signs up, I get a $10 amazon gift card. That's awesome because it's a win for you (2 free months) and a win for me ($10 amazon gift card)!
