None taken. I find myself repeating things I've done 20 or more years
ago, forgetting that I've even done them--so locating the information
on a file server or in a paper file doesn't even occur to me. Then
there's the awful feeling you get when you find out that you've
already done something. But a CD-R stuck inside a cabinet might give
me a clue.
It's sort of like the situation a friend describes to me. He says
"Old age is great--I keep making new friends that I've known for 50
