About a week or 2 ago my power supply for my computer shat itself. It would not work at all, would not power up my computer. This sent me in an angry frenzy that I slammed my fists on my table. My hands still hurt from that. So I go looking all over radio shack, Best Buy, anywhere they sell electronics around my area.They did not have any replacement power adapters that would run my computer due to low wattage. So I had to use my dads laptop to order a universal adapter that had my correct voltage which came in today. So now I'm happily running my debian computer and not stuck with my dads win7 laptop that falls apart. Moral of the story, always have backups of your shit.

And remember, it's not a backup unless there's redundancy.

Did you seriously lose data from a power-supply failure? If so, print yourself a small certification in data-integrity and frame it on the wall. You payed for it and it means more to me than someone with a Microsoft certification.

Back-ups are the MOST important thing and knowing what to backup is second. Nothing will teach you better than losing it all, except perhaps losing someone elses....

I did not lose data, I just lost power. When I say back up your shit I mean not just software but have spare computer cables too.
