One of the more important things I've done today is procure a Lacie d2 Quadra 2 TB hard drive to sync with Time Machine (Mac OSX), so that I shouldn't have to worry about losing any data. It'll get backed up to a second computer every month or so. It has a heat sink and no fan, so its super quiet and perfect for a crowded office environment. Surprisingly, not many people I've chatted to bother backing up their data at all! I guess they've never experienced massive data loss before...
