TKLBAM just saved me

Well I have to hand it to you guys - TKLBAM just saved my butt when a VM weirded out on me and failed completely. I was writing a front end for a MySQL database and had not touched the project for a week. Upon returning I could not connect to my database and the console was stuck, reboots made it worse. I simply smiled, craeted a new image and restored my last backup and was coding again in less than 10 mins! It also helps me to create a database on a local machine and migrate it to a working environment giving me complete control and ease of access.

Cant thank you enough!

Glad to hear it!

You're not the first to report the awesomeness of TKLBAM, and how it got you out of a jam. I myself have been there, done that, and got the T-shirt.

It's always a good idea to still test your backups, and TKLBAM makes that easy. Backups are hard, making sure you got it right - harder!
