Naming calls

3

An old superstition says that if you fear something that may happen you must not speak its name. Larry of Rural Rambles infamy and I have been talking about protecting ourselves from losing the databases containing all of the articles that have been posted to our blogs. Now, I am not superstitious, mind you, but yesterday the Orlop disappeared. The database server died. Hmmm.

Since you are reading this, you know that all ended well, but it does make one wonder.

Dave, reminded again how little he knows

    You’re not alone, although of course I don’t believe it for a minute (fingers crossed, knocking on wood).
