I know you have it, but I said I would send it to you, so here it is:

1. Be someplace else
2. duck
3. pretend not to notice
4. try to sleep through it
5. get drunk
6. get stoned
7. blame it all on your invisible friend
8. blame it all on your parents
9. blame it all on aliens
10. blame it all on the I.T. department
11. Blame it all on Microsoft (this one actually works )
12. call the fire brigade
13. scream for your mummy
14. resort to plan F.
15. find yourself a patsy
16. pretend to be Batman
17. faint
18. feign death
19. Plead insanity
20. Try to pin the whole thing on next door's dog
21. climb the nearest tree
22. hide behind the sofa
24. hide under the bed
25. join the foreign legion
26. put a pink lampshade on your head and pretend to be invisible
27. cover everything with duct tape
28. wear clothing made of bubble-pack
29. buy flame-proof shorts
30. stick your fingers in your ears and hum loudly
31. stick your fingers in someone else's ears.....
32. make a hat of silver foil and change your name to 'Zog the magnificent'
33. Get a job as Jeffery Archer's publicist. Everything's gonna be a disaster, but at least it won't be happening to YOU.
34. Grow wings and fly away.
35. Plan carefully. Invest wisely. Seek advice frequently. Use someone else's money....

Re:

Well all the ones you "stole" from me will still be in back journal entries - you may have to go to calendar view to get the older ones though. Personally I save stuff like that as a notepad file 'cos I can cut and paste to build it up.

peace

Re:

system backups? ... no I didn't say anything :) On my work laptop there is a CD writer so I can keep an up to date backup of all my work - actually I copy the latest version of development work to a server most evenings to keep it secure.

You only have to lose a few days development once to et a bit paranoid about it :)

take care (hugs)
