Hmm, an interesting rebuttal. I would postulate however that making backups only leads to a more responsible lifestyle, and once you head down that path you can expect only good things...and who REALLY wants that? Besides if you don't regularly lose large volumes of precious data, what is there to mop about (besides all the obvious stuff)? And further more you might actually piece together a collection of work that is able to realize its purpose as a published document. Then you start having to deal with an influx of expendable income, and getting to do the things you really wants to do in life, and, and... well lets just say its goes uphill from there. Yes, I know its hard to hear, but sometimes we just have to wake up and deal with these problems before they take over our lives.
All things in moderation...Except syrup.
