Living Room / Re: First thing to do in 2006

I had just purchased a couple of neat small external hard drives through eBay here in Australia.  I overdid it but got the eBay bug.  Just before I went on a two week holiday I was mucking around on the computer and backed up most of my important files on one of the drives and took it with me.  On returning I had a computer crash and had to reinstall Win XP from scratch. 

While I didn't need very much of the back up I made, it was a lesson in how vital a backup can be.  Now all I've got to do is make a backup plan and stick to it.

A belated Best Wishes to all on donation coder for Christmas and the new year.  I haven't been around much recently with holidays, Christmas and a computer breakdown filling my time.

A big thank you to mouser for providing this wonderful site and also to all contributors, big and small.  I hope to be more active and contributing again after my current cash flow crisis.

God bless each one of you in 2006.

Best wishes,

That's a good question.  I also have not found a free or even cheap answer to this.  I purchased FileGhost from recently but I had problems with it on my machine and am waiting for an upgrade.  This software firm produces Dupetrasher for managing duplicate files and I find it very good.


... It's just South that hasn't got a lot to offer .... (unless you are in Australia, but they stand on their heads so don't count as their bood is all in the wrong places ... even noticed how red Australian's faces get?)

That comes from standing in the sun.  (That's the big bright light in the sky that "northerners" rarely experience) ;-)
