Hello All,
I do backups (currently) twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays generally.
Last night (Sunday 12th), I had a catastrophic server failure, and had to restore to a new machine from the latest backup (Thursday 9th). So if you notice any lost work, that’s why.
The old server (Lappy) was a 2008 MacBook running Mac OSX Leopard, and had been in continual service for about 13 years. He will be missed…
On the plus side, the new server _may_ be a bit faster.
Regards,
James (Wanless) [bearnol]

I do hope that the new server is -at least- the former top model Power Mac G5, "Cypher" with four PowerPC 970MP cores, and the full 16 GB of DDR2 RAM.
If you have chosen for a laptop again, make it the Apple M1 equipped MacBookPro 17.1 -also with 16 GB, but now DDR4.

I suppose you mean "66k" ? it was -60k for me :(

I assume we must "Always look on the bright side of life" : using a 13 years old laptop as a server, we could have lost hundreds thousands of credits since the beginning of the project :)
