    I've been thinking about this for a while. Not looking for someone take over just a couple people to store a copy of the database and files used. I might get hit by a truck or something nasty, or maybe not. In case I disappear from the ether it might help out the next person. If something did happen you could post a message and help find a new coordinator, then pass the files along. I could store a copy in the shed in case the house burns done but between the mice and raccoons the shed isn't really safe.

    If you've been here awhile send me a pm, I'll zip the files and email them to you. If all goes well that will it, save the file and wait for the next round, just check back then a see if I'm still around.

    Okay looks like we have a couple volunteers, that should be good. No need to worry about me, just playing safe. I'm more concerned about computer failure than mine. I do keep a copy on a couple external drives and a USB stick but maybe I'm just a little paranoid bandit:
