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.
