    Just curious soul, but don't you have backups of the software?

    Yes, but I lost about 100 hours of work.
    Wakeup in the morning and kick the day in the teeth!! Or something like that.

    Alas, good backup habits are oft the result of pain.... Ever since I got a DVD-R/W on my laptop, I make a platter each night when I get back to the hotel. I do NOT carry the platters with me during the trip and I mail them home (NOT carried).

    99% of the time, they go straight in the trash when they arrive as everything has been properly integrated in the "main" systems. But I have the security of knowing I am 100% covered for most things except a Major fire in the hotel while I am sleeping there and can not grab the platters (or laptop) on the way out of the room.

    I spent a year in Philadelphia one week. It was closed. I guess I should have called ahead for reservations.

    Are you serious about that mailing thing?

    ... well, on second thought, it is ofcourse pretty secure that way

    ahh 1 or 2 inches equals this today:
    Arctic air mass brings snow, ice and bitter cold
    Conditions cause some school systems to close; Slick roads lead to crashes
    Spokesman Chuck Jackson at AAA Mid-Atlantic said his agency has had more than 100 calls for help since 11 p.m. Sunday night. Some of the emergencies involved cars that went off the road and needed a tow, while many others involved frozen locks. Jackson says most of the calls in the region came from Northern Virginia, D.C., and the I-95 corridor between Washington and Baltimore.

    Jackson expects AAA will get between 200 and 300 calls an hour Monday morning.
    Lets throw a ton of salt on the road so we have to fix them in the summer nice gig going there.

    Re: The Boring Thread

    Just want to continue with this cause it's like a Maryland thing...

    Our say: Editor's notebook
    By THE CAPITAL EDITORIAL BOARD


    IT'S HERE -- This year the arrival of winter weather in this area, with a dusting of snow leading to icy conditions Sunday night and Monday morning, just barely beat out the formal arrival of winter - the winter solstice - on Tuesday.

    Icy conditions on local roads were blamed for at least 120 accidents, mostly minor.

    Someday we hope a bright medical researcher, perhaps at Johns Hopkins, finds the gene responsible for what we call Maryland motorist seasonal amnesia: The inability of so many state drivers to remember, from one winter to the next, how much care is necessary to maneuver cars on ice and snow.

    In the first hours of the first storm, the roads are always filled with motorists who, though they sport Maryland tags, seem to have spent their entire driving lives in South Florida.
