Spent half an hour on an updated "If Dave Dies - Computer Stuff" sheet, in case my wife suddenly finds herself without me.

If you're a nerd like me with a non-nerd spouse/partner, and have family documents, photos, music etc. on a Linux machine maybe with encrypted backups etc. it's worth an hour or so a month making sure they have multiple ways and instructions of how to get those things relatively simply.

Things like using free software, avoiding corporate clouds, and being online privacy conscious can be great personal choices, for excellent reasons, but they are usually more work.

Don't forget how they might affect others around you if you are gone. Life is so dependent on digital memories, online accounts and identities these days. Make it easy for them if you can.
