Given Phillip's story and my own reported here on list back in 
November, it seems listas might pause a moment (this is the time of 
year of lots of lost/stolen 'books), and consider how they would deal 
with a theft - prevention and recovery, as well as backup.

Using .Mac I was able to have my current files backed up automatically 
while I was working on them before my theft.

And I have investigated software that allows IP addresses to be 
covertly sent should the thief, fence, or recipient log on to any ISP.

Probably one of the first things I will do when I get a replacement 
'book, as well as install Timbuktu.

Who else can suggest protection mechanisms for an FAQ?
