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!
