No worries … :-)

Here is some more food for thought before we end this off-topic (but important) thread …

I wonder if I should be excluding parts of /opt/local … ?  Macports has a rather high
turnover of files when you install or upgrade and I think most could be recreated easily
enough after a disk crash.

Also, it appears that it is possible for "databasey" apps to co-ordinate themselves
with Time Machine and some have already done so (or at least thought through
the issues) …

Cheers, Ian W.
