Random and Odd

It wouldn’t be a new year without it…

I remember every ‘crash’ and what it took with it.

The great crash of 2002 wiped out all my pictures. It took me days to be able to climb out of bed after that one.  All the ones before that were annoying, but they didn’t cause my heart to break.
I did learn after the crash of 2002 that “The Blue Screen Of Death” means business and should not be messed with.

When I first got my lap top, I had to send it back in because it kept losing the wireless and come to find out, the model I bought is notorious for it.

Welcome 2008 and guess where my laptop is?  Yeah…HP.  (Shut up Mac users!)

I lost ALL my emails.  I had JUST backed up all my pictures the night before in preparation for the disaster. I didn’t think about the emails that would be lost though.

So I will be using this time semi-computerless to do the things I have been thinking about.

1. Yoga.
2. Reorganizing every thing I can find.
3. trying to pull that large object lodged in my arse. Oh, that would be my head.


I'm a lot of things, but mostly I'm just Random and Odd.

    Damn. Same thing happened to me last January. It was a disaster. At least you backed up your photos… you’ll get so many more emails in the future ;)

    Thank God you backed up the photos. I know back mine up on an external hard drive AND I finally made the leap in ’07 and went Mac. Once you go Mac you never go back. It’s true.

    Hmm…how odd. My laptop just did the same thing to me yesterday. My hubs is still trying to recover any of my 2000 pictures, countless emails, the last pictures we have of his mom who died last year, etc… Is January just the month for computer brain farts?

    I’ve had my computer go down before, but I’ve never actually lost any data. I might kill myself if this happened.

    Honest to God, for what you want to do on your computer a Mac would really be the best thing for you. Just think about it for next time.

    After having had the same types of issues I did two things:

    I bought a MAC (sorry, couldn’t resist); and

    I bought a 160 gb storage drive that backs up my hard drive every day. The storage drive cost me $120 at BJs wholesale club, but I know you can get them at Sam’s or even Circuit City or the like for about the same price. It’s one-touch backup, and it’s saved me many a curse word.
