ALWAYS either back-up on a floppy disk and/or print things out. I had a terrible sysyem crash awhile back and all my manuscripts were lost, gone, fini, never to be seen or heard of again...I was devastated but when I called my computer man he said, "aha, I was afraid of something like that so I put all your stuff on 2 floppy disks." We are talking about two years work here. Now I have the disks and have to put the work back on my coputer. So you see what a problem it can be. I love my laptop and don't use anything else, never have.
