I work on my print documents from the server, and back up to my hard
drive, like you.

For online help, I work on my hard drive (for compiling purposes), and
then back up to the server.

I have only recently mended my ways - I used to do ALL my work on my
hard drive (just lazy, it was easier), and would only back up every
month or two. Then my hard drive started getting flakey, and luckily I
reformed just before the final blue screen. . . . . .

Now if you could just put the fear of the dreaded blue screen into those
writers . . . . . (that'll shape 'em right up)!
