  1. First I’d like to thank you for making this blog and posting so many interesting links. Second, I’d suggest using dropbox to store your work in progress so that the next time your computer gets taken over you’ll have a better chance of not losing your work.

    Thank you for posting the RunRev blog from Kevin. It has been a hard several days for me regarding RevMobile for ip**. In time I will heal from the loss. Jeff, please get your act together and Kindle Jobs’ butt, or did you make a back-room deal with the devil a long time ago??? HP, give us a a Reformation from a rebirth. Show us competing quality can be make and had, not out of dictorial whims.

  3. DropBox wouldn’t have helped. It was a stupid naming convention I was using for the WordPad file that got it trashed by accident. I’ve since changed the way I name them so I’d be surprised if it happened again.
