Belt and braces

Man, it's a good thing that when I finish writing lectures on my home computer for use at Warwick the next day, I not only upload them onto the University server over their intranet, but also email them to myself, just in case.

Because it means that when I do something completely and utterly stupid, like upload two copies of my lecture notes onto the server, instead of one copy of the notes and one copy of the handout, I still have another place where I've put the files, and another chance of having got it right. Which, thankfully, I did.

Ah, yes. There is nothing like a good back-up strategy. I tend to e-mail things to myself too, for similar reasons.

Amen to that... I generally add "Carry a burnt copy on CD" to that list as well... I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one!

Yes, there's something to be said for a belt, braces and superglue policy!

    Ciao caro.
    Ho ascoltato la canzone Domine Salvum Fac su youtube. Ripete la parola Domine due volte dopo che segue Salvum Fac e non capisco oltre. Ma mi sembra che il testo non corrisponda del tutto…

    I think just 'not being Trump' proved to be enough!

    Yes, that's it. Just having someone in charge who isn't actively making things worse for the world is a big relief.

    There are many, many doubts and worries. But still, there is an enormous rock of anguish that has been weighting on my soul since the first days after that monster's election which has now lifted.
