Safe conlanging, was: Aaaaaargh!!!!!

The sad story with Dan, and the former case with (Old) Tokana web site,
and my own unpleasant experience of same type, reminded me of an idea.

Aren't we all on the Net? I guess (nearly) everybody can allot a few MB
of disk space for securing others and him/herself from such calamities.

So, why not exchange copies of materials which are hard to recover and
not especially private? I mean specifically conlang-related stuff.

I think I can reserve some 20 MB for that purpose on my poor old
Pentium90 that I have at home. Please consider this the official
statement of my modest contribution to Safe Conlanging Foundation.

And perhaps some members of the list dispose of much more space than
I do.

My own files which are worth securinf are mostly .txt or Starling .dbf,
rarely MS Word-95, hardly 2 MB altogether (I must check it).

What do you think, folks?
