Oh great is my woe. It is an old story that I have seen told by others on this forum. I stored my life list on my computer. The computer gave trouble and I had the whole thing redone. But I had my life list stored in Roberts electronic - and lo when I reregistered it as required there was no more life list. Gone! I can hardly blame Roberts for this as I should have made a backup but in my dodgy knowledge of computers I thought it would be stored. So -a warning - if you are going to reinstall your Roberts make sure you have made a copy of your lists! Fortunately I had my old steam-driven lists which included a lifelist but I did not keep it up to date. The result - My life list is registered on this forum as 381 but I have it on Roberts now as 377. Now I have to go through all my photos to find the missing four and I do not photographic evidence of all these.

So my request, sad as it is please downsize me from 381 to 377. I shall find those missing ones but until I do I cannot claim them. In revenge against the electronic world I have a road trip planned to find all sorts of new birds.

Pete (who is sulking)

Hello huntsman

Isn't Ndumo a jewel! I want to go back there in summer. I'll put up with the heat. It was there that I saw an Eastern Nicator and boy that bird is beautiful. I think I got nearly 8 new ticks there - in midwinter.

I had the privilege of a guided walk with Sonto.

Yes, pnm, every one of us at some time or another has lost important elcetronic data for lack of adequate backups. Glad you had it down manual, though, as otherwise it would have been a chaotic mess. I still believe in good old handwriting backups.

Sasol go one step further. (backwards)

They allow you to export your list but make no way to import it back into your unit! So even though you back it up you can't retrieve it anyway! :shock:

Like o.w.n., I use a manual system (Excel) as a backup of my backup as a result...

Sonto is a great guide whom we first used on honeymoon 30 years ago! Guided by Joseph this time and nailed African Broadbill and Green Sandpiper amongst others.

Good times... :wink:
