I think that your e-mail got lost in-between my surgeries. I've had 3 on my shoulder in the past 6 mos and I'm still in a sling.

Anyway, the M-Files has encountered a major disaster. The hard drive on the computer crashed and the data was unrecoverable. When I attempted to download the back-up copy from the CDs, I found that there was NOTHING there. 15 years worth of work had vanished.

I am now left with a paper copy of an early draft which will have to be scanned or retyped into the computer page-by-page. I will then have to go through various notes and correspondence to see what had been added after that draft was done and re-input it. Needless to say, it's been hard for me to get motivated again.
