Yeah, that was before this place, unfortunately. I especially miss the recipe for Real Russian Bliny. I cannot find one enywhere, not for the Real stuff.

You are what you eat.

good information! Yes, Google is a good service, but as I mentioned, Google also crashes. It is best to have multiple options in this area. Use Google. Download to a CVS, which (thanks :)) can be used by Excel, or some other spreadsheet program. Back-up programs will be as slow or as fast as you choose. The first time through they will be slow, because they are backing up everything. But each backup program has settings that will help you make subsequent backups faster. For example, you can choose to only back up files that were created or modified after your last backup. When you get your new computer - or hard drive - one good way to manage your data is to have the computer technician divide your hard drive into two pieces - not literally, but virtually. Have him/her install all of the software on the C: drive and then, when you use the computer, make sure you put all of your data on the D: drive. If your computer has a DVD burner, all you have to do is burn all of D: to your DVD. If you buy a whole new computer, you can usually ask the shop to do this for you, or order one that has already had this set up. Dell used to charge $25 for this service, or sometimes gave it away as a freebie. I am not putting in a plug for Dell - neither good nor bad - just using them as an example. With computers and backups, having 2 options is the best way.
