The joys of weblogs and the perils of free hosting. Within hours of Linda's last post Geocities lost her entire web page. Fortunately I had her site backed-up and was able to move her to her new home. I also corrected the URLs in her last post to reflect new page locations and have updated links on my list of sites and a few other locations.

Moral: A fool and his [her] data are soon parted. Fortunately we back-up after every change, and migrate those back-ups to CD ROM. If you're not doing the same thing ask yourself how long it would take to recover from a complete loss of all files and content on your personal page. Sobering, isn't it?
