Disk Crash!

If I owe anyone a response, please drop me a reminder since I've finally suffered a disk crash and, of course, my backups are a bit out of date. The horse having bolted, I've been rushing around buying Firewire disks and that sort of thing.

The thing that really took up time was the effort to recover something from the disk. As John Cleese's character said in the film Clockwise: the worst thing is hope, once that's gone it's not so bad.

Apple support has been good, once pushed, except that I can't find a copy of the relevant version of Keynote to download. I might have to buy another copy, which is a bit rough. If I'd used Powerpoint, at least I'd be able to work with NeoOffice

And I'm so pleased I use IMAP for email.
