Today I learned a valuable lesson in the hardest way possible.
ALWAYS HAVE A BACKUP OF YOUR PHOTOS!
A colleague of mine accidentally spilt a full glass of water all over my laptop. It shut down immediately. Approximately 30 GB of my photos from the last two years were on it. Of course, I haven't made a backup. "I'll do it tomorrow", I was saying for the last two years.
Now my laptop is drying and I'll try to turn it on in a couple of days. Wish me luck...
