Without a safety net

Here goes then. I've just wiped my hard disk. The laptop's heading off to hospital tomorrow and having made a final back-up of the data I scrubbed it clean.

I'm now left with just one copy of everything. It was like that for a long time as I carried around the laptop without backing it up. But for the past two or three years I've regularly transferred everything to an external device. My safety net. And now I'm left with just that disk. There's no third parachute. It's making me nervous.

Updates will be erratic while I have to rely on borrowed computers; hopefully soon I'll back back on a shiny PowerBook.
