My thought is not important, I was just thinking of a way that would keep me
from screwing up. Actually if the computer backed up while I am sleeping,
that would be perfect, especially if it only adds new un-backed-up data.
Probably have to add that one to the dictionary.
Thanks everyone reading and helping. I am getting very excited again. If
