In keeping with Kate’s theme for the day (frustration), I am posting my frustration of the day. Our home computer, which we have had for a little over a year, has been dead since last Wednesday. It is currently un-bootable, and we’ve been using my old computer as a back up (glad I saved it).
So tonight is “save-the-computer” night. I’m not exactly sure what happened (virus, worm, faulty hard-drive, etc), but I have a couple of ideas of how I might salvage the data on the disk, but I might be relying on those who are more technically savy than me (like him or him). Part of me is actually looking forward to this as a learning experience. How sick is that?
Of course, the other part of me is petrified that I’m going to lose a lot of data from the past year. If only I had signed up for Flickr and backed up all my pictures earlier! Dah!!
