Blessed are the pessimists.....
« on: December 23, 2009, 11:15:24 AM »
....for they have taken backups.

Just had an email from a client from June '07.  Apparently her nephew was playing with matches (what, don't they listen to Charlie now?).  He kind of set fire to their spare bedroom.  Nobody was hurt and the rest of the house survived but, you guessed it, their wedding album was in the spare bedroom.  (I know, shocking!  One recent client has built a small shrine to hers in the living room.  Really.).

Fortunately I still have backups.   8)  Which means her insurance company gets to pay for my Christmas hols  ;D

Our welding was many years ago now, before digital was around. I don't even know if the photographer is still in business, or if we could replace the album.

Enjoy the end of year windfall!

I suspect you're taking the joining of two people to extremes there  ;D

If ever a case was needed for keeping back ups - you've done it Jonathan. Congrats on the extra cuddly toy for Christmas.

Isn't there a saying about "ill winds"?
