"Believe it or not"
I was putting the final touches on Chameleon, and had (as did Tom) decided to go with LULU or its counterpart.
Final spelling check !, final structure check; final make sure the dates are correct check; putting in pictures, stolen (with permission) from Etnika and Munin Verlag.
In short: the end was in sight.
I had done this all on my old DELL , it was the most stable; however . . . . . . . . it started to have hickups.
So, Got an other DELL , fabulous, 750 gig harddrive, 6 gig memory, etc. etc . I just had received my last million (LOL) as settlement for the car accident, so i splurged.
Got a automatic transfer program, hooked up the two, and since nothing could go wrong - go wrong - go wrong . . . did not think it necessary to doublecheck, or to make a double transfer to our (my wife's and I) laptop.
Donated the old one, and "wiped" the harddrives beforehand of course.
Surprise ! A whole slug of stuff had not been transferred, including the final version of Chameleon. I most certainly must have something done wrong, but no use crying over spilled milk. So yours truly is back to check - double check etc. before I will send it off. Luckily I ha previous versions, so it was back to work.
Meanwhile JOhn Moore had made me a set on CD, it looked very good, so I also am still toying with the idea to put it on a CD, and call it good. Will also be a lot cheaper for those who are interested. ( IF snybody actually still is interested after all that dragging)
So that's where it stands; I almost got so p...ed off that i wanted to delete the whole shabang, my wife talked me out of it.
How many would opt for a CD, and how many would better like a paper format ???
Thanks for remembering that it still is in the making
