No doubt that is true, but I just didn't have the time to mess around

forge ahead. I was able to get most of my changes from backup and I
only lost work from that morning, which I was easily able to recreate.

Thanks. This looks useful - I'll save it for future reference (which I
hope I'll never need ;-)
