Yesterday, being Sunday, and with “it” knowing that I had shite-load of work to do come Monday… my laptop crashed.
Decided it needed a holiday.
Pick one- they all fit!
I lost everything. Yes- EVERYTHING!!! Stories I have been working on, photographs, my budget… not much work stuff because that gets backed up on a regular basis and I deliberately don’t keep work stuff on my laptop for fear of losing it and having to redo it all- but there is some I am going to have to do over. I also lost my timesheets for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and now I have to try and remember what the hell I did for those three days! I am most upset about my photographs though. I have a lot of them on CD at home, but not all of them, and the more I think about what has happened, the more I realise how much I have lost! It’s heartbreaking!
So, much swearing and crying has gone on today (okay, not really crying- but I wanted to) as I tried to salvage something from the fried hard drive (unsuccessfully) and then spent the rest of the day attempting to reload the fried hard drive (also unsuccessfully), then buying a new hard-drive and then loading everything on the new one.
I am now quickly posting from work because I won’t be able to post from home until I complete the re-installation process of everything I need and use everyday. Including my 3G internet connection system, my phone system and my camera software. This is going to take a while. So be patient with me bunnies… I will no doubt let you all know when I’m back up and running at full speed again…
There Is Never An Excuse
One in three is not a statistic - one in three is a crying shame.
