And now back to our regularly scheduled programming...

Three days after dropping my MacBook off to a "Mac Genius" at the local Apple store, I picked up my trusty steed fortified with a fresh new hard drive. Unfortunately, it is now a completely empty hard drive, devoid of any of the pictures or files I previously had on it. To say that that smarts a little is a bit of an understatement. Every day I remember more stuff (pics, files etc.) that were on my computer that are now lost forever and it totally bums me out. Unlike the foodie pics that I lost, some of the stuff that was on there is stuff that I can never replace, either. That sucks, but life goes on. Live and learn. I can guarantee you this; that i'll be backing up my information regularly from now on. I'll probably even upload all of my pics to some online picture hosting sites in addition to keeping copies on my drive just as an additional backup.

Anyway, now that that little snag is out of the way it's back to business as usual. Time to write some posts! And now back to our regularly scheduled programming...

Hurray! Your back!

Anyways, that sucks. I hate computers as much as I love 'em. All the information can just vaporize... "poof".

That's the digital age.

Now where's my Tommies picture!

Yes...the beauty of technology. Can store so much info for you...and can lose it all in an instant. C'est la vie...

Oh that is a shame losing all your goodies on your computer. I've had that happen, too so I can totally relate. And I, too started the double back-up idea and it's almost as good as comfort food and well worth a little extra time!

Wow, your regular schedule sucks.

Hee hee.

Fat War not only injured some of us, but it destroyed your blog too. =)

Heh. Yeah, yeah my "regular schedule" does suck...been a little busy lately (Read: lazy). Have some half written posts saved but not finished yet. Will finish 'em soon. Unfortunately, my writing style takes time, and time is what I seem to have so little of these days...
