This annual holds fond memories - working to a tight deadline and meeting the publisher the next morning, we were finalising the last few pages at around midnight when the old Mac decided to crash, leaving a corrupt file that we couldn't re-open...there was no other options but to re-do all that was lost working many late nights.....happy days.... ...
