I made daily backups, but the thing is, I keep only the backups of the
two last days on a second drive, so my 2 back-ups are screwed up. And
yes this may be a mistake but I also make backups every once in a while,
on a DVD-RW, but since I've been away for a few weeks, my DVD backup is
too old :(

Well, I've done nothing more than committing my changes, so I guess I
couldn't harm my DB this way, otherwise it really means that I should
quit using svn, right? :-)

I've upgraded from version 1.0.4 to 1.0.5 but I didn't see any db
incompatibilities in the readme. Am I blind? :-)

Thanks for your help,
