I lost my car title

Important papers should be kept in a safe and secure area; such as a safe deposit box. Unfortunately, sometimes they get misplaced, lost, damaged, or stolen. If you just can’t seem to find that all-important title to your vehicle, what should you do? DMV.org outlines the steps you need to take to replace that document.
DMV.ORG can help you through the process, tell you which forms you’ll need to fill out, and how much the fees will be. Especially if you intend to sell or give away a vehicle, you’ll need to process the paperwork for a lost title in time to have the transaction go through smoothly.

Difference between Onsite & Offsite Storage

Every business understands the importance of backing up important company data. No matter how efficient a computer system appears to be, there is always the possibility of a malfunction wiping out valuable data. For this reason, many companies have set up backup systems, designed to recover lost data. There are both onsite and offsite storage options and both have certain advantages and disadvantages.

Onsite storage usually entails storing important data on a periodic basis on local storage devices, such as hard drives, DVDs, magnetic tapes, or CDs. Offsite storage requires storing important data off-site which could include both cloud storage or private vault (or safe deposit box).

Onsite storage has some advantages over offsite storage, including:

  • immediate access to data
  • less expensive
  • Internet access not needed

However, onsite storage has one distinct disadvantage over offsite storage. In the event of a catastrophic event, onsite data storage can be destroyed. For example, if there is a fire in the building, or a water main bursts, the onsite servers can lose all the data that has been collected on them. In addition, onsite storage units can also be stolen, resulting in a loss of time, money, and data.

Offsite storage has some advantages over onsite storage, including:

  • access to data from any location, via Internet or FTP
  • data will be preserved in the event of an event taking place within the business
  • backup data can be shared with a number of different remote locations
  • Private vault or safe deposit box extremely secure and accessible

Then again, just as onsite data backup has some disadvantages, the same holds true for offsite storage. For one thing, since the data is stored offsite, it can be tricky to access the data when it is needed. For example, some of the offsite data servers will be routinely taken offline in order to perform preventive maintenance. During that time period, access to the offsite data will either be severely limited or completely cut off. In most cases, clients who use offsite storage are given plenty of notice when a site is going down for maintenance or repair. However, if you use a private vault or safe deposit box you can just go get your external hard drive.

When it comes to making a choice between onsite and offsite backup options, it is usually a matter of preference. Some individuals prefer being able to monitor and keep track of their valuable data, and will often use onsite protection. Others, however, will choose to allow offsite servers to maintain the data, until such time as it is needed.

Then again, if an individual wishes to have the most secure system with the lowest likelihood of having all data lost; it is possible to adopt an onsite-offsite solution. By having both onsite and offsite backup used in conjunction with each other, a problem in one side of the equation can be offset by recovery from the other side.

Gun Storage Solutions

Gun safety and preparation are incredibly important, especially when long-term storage is involved. The first–and most important–step is to make sure that your firearm is completely unloaded. The next step is to clean and oil your gun. If you’ve had a lot of time on the range or hunting this season, make sure to disassemble your gun and give it a very thorough cleaning. If you’re storing for an especially long time, you should also clean the magazine. Now that the gun is squeaky clean, let’s talk about storage facilities.

When deciding on a storage facility, keep in mind that security should always be your number one priority. Guns are worth a ton of money, and are incredibly dangerous if they fall into the wrong hands. Remember that some facilities do not allow the storage of guns in their facility, while some cater exclusively to gun owners. If you have a gun at home, but no space, using a gun safe in conjunction with a secure storage facility is a great solution. Trigger locks are definitely recommended, and might be required depending on where you are storing your gun. Fortunately, gun locks are relatively inexpensive and easy to use.

Humidity is always a concern, as humid temperatures can lead to rusting, which will definitely render a firearm unusable. If you didn’t shell out the cash for the ultimate luxury of climate-control, you should consider shelling out a little money for a breathable gun sock and some desiccant silica gel packs. The gel packs will control the local humidity in the gun sock, and the sock will keep the gun protected from extraneous weather conditions while maintaining a fairly stable environment.
