Now, I usually always forget to backup something - especially when I format my machines. Yes, I know, the usual mantra of IT Consultants etc is to 'backup, backup, backup'. But how many of actually practice that? For one thing, it's just too damn time consuming. Anyone, I've just been poking through the Program Files for Trillian - looking for a way to move my (neatly organised) contact list from my desktop onto my laptop (where it's still a mess). And I've come across an XML file in C:\Program Files (x86)\Trillian\users\default\; buddies.xml to be precise :) For those of you that do not know what Trillian is, I strongly suggest you go and have a look at their website - www.trillian.cc.
