I think the latest word from Fengtao on this subject (which has its own thread) was on December 15: read here. Also note that Fengtao's internet service has, up until yesterday, been spotty at best due to the Taiwan earthquake. And I think the forum is more effective than you give it credit for being in solving problems. You already have an exellent suggestion or two if you need to make a quick backup. Fengtao and Ting read lots of posts here and respond directly to some; with others a solution will often show up in the next beta release. And while, to paraphrase a former U.S. President, we feel your pain, as jaminsd noted, a little honey goes a long way.
