Cylone debrief

Having very fortunately missed the damage done by Cyclone Yasi but been near enough to get very ready for it I have now started the big job of
  • scanning all my certificates and other documents so that I have a backup copy other than just having the one in my paper files
  • scanning old photos and labelling them - I'm exploring the picassa face recognition right now
  • storing a backup of some of my photos and family tree info online
This is a big job and not very exciting when you can be doing new research .... but on the other hand I would hate to lose all the hard work I've already done. So the plan is to scan a bit at a time and any new stuff as soon as I get it.
