Computer Update

Hi friends!! Just thought I'd give you a quick update. My computer is FRIED. I lost an entire month's worth of pictures and videos of the midget and all the documents I've created in the last few months. I tried two different retrievals and the last step is to send it in for Data Recovery which starts at $500 and can cost all the way up to $1600. It's crazy CIA stuff where they pull out the hard drive and replace the pins of the drive manually. Needless to say, this is completely unaffordable and not guaranteed to work anyway. Well, I guess I've learned my backing up lesson... Please learn from my mistake and back up your files regularly!!

I do have to send my computer in to see if the hard drive is malfunctioning. If that's the case, I have a service plan, so it should be covered in pretty much any circumstance. If it is software, it may be covered under the computer's warranty.

So to sum it all up, you won't be seeing much of me for a good while. My hubby's busy travelling season starts next week and he will need his computer most of the time, but I've had limited access to his computer while he's been on vacation. So I will probably be able to read your blogs from my phone (pocket pc), but I can't comment from my phone.

I am also watching a friend's 9 month old, so I'm sure I'll be too busy to wallow in too much self-pity. " ) PLUS, I surprised hubby with a Wii for Christmas, so I'm busy working on my boxing, bowling, and Guitar Hero skills so I can beat Wifey when we hang out one of these days!

Don't forget me! Hopefully, I'll be back soon! I'll leave you with this picture of the midget enjoying her Christmas gift--a toy piano.

I just backed up all my photo files last night with thoughts of you on my mind. That is so completely awful!

Hope you'll be back soon...it's not the same rip-roaring fun place without ya. :)

Heather said...

Oh nooooooooooooooo! I'll miss you!

We also got a Wii for Christmas - no guitar hero but I probably couldn't play it anyhow, since I have Wii Tennis and Bowling arm/shoulder injuries!!

Kat said...

I am so sad for you - the pictures - ack!! You will be sorely missed. But I promise to think of you everytime I get on the wii to bowl. Or play tennis. And for some reason, I am a boxing champ. We still haven't opened the guitar hero boxes :-)

~A moment of silence for your pictures.~


That sucks! I know you had pictures of your Christmas decorations and the midget on there...hopefully it will be covered under warranty. You deserve that kind of good news.

Either this is damage incident or misalignment of the logical structure of data; data recovery remedies give you a chance of rebuilding it from the scratch. Both of the ways prove efficient and valuable in their way of approach in respective data loss incidents.

That reminds me - time to do a complete backup.

Sorry 'bout your 'puter!

Deanna said...

What?!? Are our computers sisters too!!! My computer died on Christmas Eve and I am relying on my hubs computer too. Too weird!

Girl if you are working out on the Wii boxing you are going to be one fit Mama. My boys played that the whole time we were at my parents house and they looked like wet rats from the pure exertion.

Aubrey said...

Ah crud! That has to suck. And this is probably why my hubby INSISTS on backing up his backup! LOL

Brandy said...

Just checking on you...I hope you get back to blogging soon!
