Rating: 2 votes, 4.50 average.
I'm a collector, and techie-geek(i guess) Anyway, I run across things from time to time that really make my life easier, better, or just relieve some "What if" stress.

Wow, this has changed..SCF has incorporated many services into their platform, but we still traverse the wild www

Make Nesc. back-up's..archive your photo's, scans and documents-

With 1T Hard drives being so cheap, no reason NOT to have 2 HD Backup's going..I use a 1T and a 3T(main dump-upgraded every 2 years)
They are doing a few heavy tests on solid state drives and Flash memory regarding read/write stress.

Hard drives maintained with Spinrite 6.0

Use strong passwords, make sure the service you use doesn't store information in plain text.

I'll have other add-ons and Apps once I really trust them

Selling platforms: Many have sprung up, 2-3 look like they are truly viable options!

A collection tracker- Pay or ?? This area seems destined to be each his/her own. No platform, program(sans Microsoft or Google docs) has taken a hold in the hobby.

Show those cards, errr scans! No longer PhotoBucket or bust we have many great start-ups. A few incorporate innovative programs for bulk uploading, phone camera use, tagging, sharing..customized for collectors
