Marvin's Paranoid Backup Script

Even though I save my projects in a folder in my dropbox which allows me to go back 2 hundreds of previous version. I still lose a lot of work when livecode crashes - and it does far too frequently - usually when I have been using the debugger. Oh but you should save every 5/10 minutes I hear you sa...

I even used s"et the casesensitive to false" and that had no effect either so I have reverted to a kludge by e...

Re: How to check if the date is today or note

Hi jacque
