Please, please everyone back up your work. I had a scare this morning when pc asked for a Windows XP password – completely out of the blue. The password hint said “red” I spent two hours with a dictionary putting in everything that began with “red”. I knew it was not a password we had ever put in, because the entire family uses the same password for everything.
Close to tears I woke up technoson, who thankfully fixed it in five minutes. I was so relieved I was a bit rash and gave him twenty quid!
All I could think of was my book – I didn’t care about anything else. I had backed the first draft on a memory stick, but all my precious editing over the past five weeks or so would have been lost.
