My slow typing sausage fingers means that to do a redo of my website would be too emotional to bear. And therefore before I get an email that goes "in the rarest of situations a horde of robot Nazi zombies has destroyed the server which housed your website. sorry for any inconvenience" dot, dot dot. What would you gurus suggest be a good way to back up my crap thanks, Bev
