Saved by the backup   

Saved by a backup!
Yes, there was a backup made last night, so i only had to re-edit contestant data of the twenty-something pictures i added on thursday.
I must admit, i really love some system administrators :-)
To prevent repetition i've downloaded and installed a back-up script from BizDesign that backups the whole kit and caboodle after building.
It works, but this one also isn't very elegant coded: when you make a backup it compresses (tar.gz) all index files, all keywords, all captions and all thumbnails captions. So far so good, but the next time you make a backup it compresses everything including the compressed backup it has produced the previous time. The result is that every time the backup is growing with the size of the backup. Funny ...
