Whats your my documents schema?

Hi All.

I had a computer crash the other day, and whilst I am waiting for my data to be returned, I thought it would be a great opportunity for some spring cleaning of my files. I know that there are a lot of you that are far more organised than me so I thought I would share my ideas about the optimal folders schema that will work for me. If any of you can suggest improvements, I would love to hear your suggestions.

Heres the schema(ps I give this as complete creative commons so do with it what you will!)
I have attached the folders as an image.
If there are any great changes I will add them in and zip it up. to share.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
