Assemble a digital address book

The idea to enter this on my 101-in-1001 list came from the realisation that it would be really bad if something happened to my mobile phone. I have around a hundred contacts in the address book, most of which I do not have stored somewhere else. If I lost my phone, there would be no way for me to retrieve those contacts, which would be a catastrophe in some cases. Therefore, I decided to assemble addresses into a single, digital database, gathering information from e-mail clients, cellular phone, instant messaging and some other sources.

It would be a lie to say that it took much time, but it still was a menial task and the hours I spent doing it was not very entertaining (for instance, my cellular is too old to be able to connect directly to my computer, so I had to transfer the numbers and names manually). However, it needed to be done, and an hour here and an hour there finally accomplished the task. Even if it would be irritating if I lost my cellular, it no longer entails the catastrophe it once did.
