  1. something i worry about on a regular basis

    This is actually something i worry about on a regular basis which is why i make use of my personal blog, bookmarks and Archinect among other forms of redundancy. I try and create multiple copies of my online self. However, the point remains in a big enough event, I would be f***ed! What to do? Download as a digital copy all to my hard-drive. Any suggestions.
