Incomplete Entries & Computing Bacteria for Friday, July 24, 2009

You know we often strive to deliver a 'complete' entry of the daily major postings concerning biology, zoology and other life science topics. Today, we had some unique issues with Blogger freezing up, our (public) Dell Optiplex 755 deleting our data and Microsoft Word (the most current version) and DOS dumping our data...all at the same time. We spoke to the IT people who 'run' the computers and servers here at our IP address, but they reported that it is policy for them to delete all documents when rebooting the servers - even when they have been saved. But, we know that is false based on our previous experience.

Warning!: Based on our experience (above) we strongly suggest moving any and all Word Document work to Google Documents as soon as possible if you are working in the same type of environment.
