|08:48 am - Backups are good. . .|
Today I have something that provides a glimmer of hope.
I have all my backups from 1997 on.
Why is this important?
Because I can now pull everything from my old files that is remotely cool and post it.
There are several things that I have lost over hard-drive failures or disk malfunctions that I hope to be able to retrieve from these disks.
If I can get half of what I want, those who like to read my writing are going to be in for a real treat.
I'll let you know how it goes.

Cool, I'd suggest that as soon as you get things together that you burn them to cd's and actually make some hard copies.
Such is the plan, but I'm also realizing that lots of my writing absolutely sucked.
And we're not just talking vacuums here.
Hehehe, boy, do I ever know how that goes. Those can be kept as "educational" devices, or, through the wonders of the ditigal medium universe, deleted and forgotten for ever ;)
I wish I could delete them. Alas, I am a trained historian, and as such, documents are highly valuble to me.
Damnit, why am I cursed to think of the future in all things? :)
Hehehe, yea, I know how it goes. I'm in the busines of preserving things, even crappy things.
because you were so forgetful in your last life, that you swore that you would never forget things again....
bringing that into this life...means you keep EVERYTHING of any importance....te he...
*grins* If I believed in reincarnation, I'd probably think you were 100% right.
As it stands, I think there's about a 50% chance that you're on the nose, with an equal chance of showers in the afternoon :)
with the winds blowing slant like during a snow storm in El Paso, TX??? Hmmm I think maybe you might actually have a little something there...maybe...

I just keep copying my files over whenever I get a new computer.
I have all my nontrivial email saved going back to 1993, though the past year or so of it is pretty disorganized. The other stuff I have going back to about 1996, though I could probably dig out the hard disk where I saved earlier stuff.
I really should get a decent backup system set up....
