Doncaster Doings, and Skin Those Teeth

Went off to Doncaster College today to do external examining type stuff to their course. They have a lovely Business Computing Degree (if such a thing can be said to be lovely). We validate it and look at the projects and exam papers. They have some very nice scenario based assessment which is really great stuff. Found out that some of the staff there actually won the lottery! Nothing at the "Retire and buy an island" level, but enough to put a big smile on anybody's face. So now I know a lottery winner or two. Just don't give up the day job yet folks.

Then home to finish off my backup recovery. By some file diddling and renaming we finally brought everything back from the grave and all is well.

I wonder where the expression "Skin of your teeth" comes from?
