    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Make sure you keep good backups as the fall over rate with SSD drives is very high; much higher than HDD's.

    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    You do have to be careful and watch those backups though Maca. Had one in the septic system the other day and it was nasty to sort out. Ha ha ha ha

    We are experts at fixing those backup Rushy we do some nasty work, nothing worse than seeing my guy sitting outside cutting strings from pump impellers or with a bucket of minced napkins and pads, underwear, condom packets,rags, shirts, you name it, it gets flushed.had a granny once with a jammed poo pump, her grandson was living in the downstairs bedroom, it was full of condom packets! Didn't have the heart to tell the old lady what the cause was? nothing like being in the pit when some one flushes #2s or having to free a non return valve with 50 metres of shit on the other side. Computers are lovely clean little monkeys really?
