Restore them from the back ups:)

Run around screaming and killing people for about an hour then, i'd blow up SeaLab.

I'd cry. A back up sounds like a good idea.

Backups are a good idea though I can rarely be bothered with them.



I thought I recognised your new Avatar no-one. Sealab 2020!!

I've got a VHS of that around somewhere...

I answer to the question I would have a fit and probably break a *lot* of things in the immediate vicinity.

I don't think I ever really backup...

I have lost almost all my source once...I had to go to another computer where I still had an older version of it on it...that sucked. I was real ........ed off for a while, then I calmed down...

Yeh, I believe in back-ups, but I don't really exercise that belief. I should though. In case of an emergency. It takes so long, though. I don't have that time to waste. Although, what am I doing now? I could be creating a back-up now. Oh well.

It's a case of 'It's a good idea but I can't really be bothered to do it as what's the probability of my needing it? I'll probably lose the disks anyway'.

Or something.

Yeh, that would be a problem. But what are the chances of loosing the data on the hard drive AND loosing the backups. It narrows down the possibilities.

I would not consider it a coincidence if I lost both the info off hard drive and backups. I would think someone was meddling.

I'm a very suspicious person.

Gosh, I hope I'm not in a ten-foot radius when no-one looses data files.

yeah... _real_ programmers don't use backups... [i have 4 backups to my datafiles... none to my source... so i'm a semi-wimp... one backup for each file version...]

_see_ behold! thread... probably on the third page by now... hopefully not...
