How do I back-up my pictures ??  I remember hearing Dennis Hills stories at Nicks Rally so I picked up the Cd's and am ready to do the task. Just wondering how to do it ?

The best way to back them up is with Picasa … do you have that?  There is a whole series of Picasa Show-Me-How Videos for members here … /picasa-learning-series/  Pay particular attention to #14 and 15 which are all about backups.  In Picasa, its on the Tools menu – backup pictures.  If this is the first time you've done it, you can just Select All – then click the Burn button to put them on a CD or DVD.  If it fills more than one disk, Picasa will simply prompt you for another disk.
