The Land of the Dead

Well my brand new "Super Duper Computer" has crashed for the second time in 10 months. I bought a "top of the line", "Most reliable" computer and I am ticked off! Not only do I have the inconvenience of not having my lovely big computer...I lost all let me restate ALL my data and pictures! So I have lost most of my vacation pictures and family memories because of course I am not smart enough to have burned them on a disk. I mean that literally...I don't know how to do it. So here I sit mourning my computer on my laptop. I can't download any pictures off my camera because the card is too big for this computer.

Just thought I would stop in a whine a bit! I hope that I can upload some pictures soon. London's Halloween costume was so cute and believe it or not gang, I have become crafty again!

THAT STINKS! Computers are as fabulous as they are horrid, grrrr. Mostly I am sorry about your pics :(
And I do believe you have always been crafty, whether it be sewing or crazy fun primary parties or making little word worms... always been there!

That really really sucks! I'm really sorry about all your pictures. That is the thing that I dread all the time. I keep thinking that I need to back up my pictures, but never do. I think I may just do that now! BTW, the kids thought that your treasure hunt thing after the primary presentation was fantastic. They think you are so cool!

This is one of my all time fears (right up there with hights). I blogged about this a while back and what i do about it.

It is possible to recover your images if you take it to the right place but it will probably cost a bunch of $$$ (sorry).

I totally understand!! When some lovely person wiped my computer over a year ago I lost a ton of stuff! Im so paranoid now that I dont download anything onto my computer that i would miss. All my pictures are on CD's and I have all but stopped writing in my other journal just cause i never remember to back it up so i hate to write when i could lose it. Strange philosphy?

Aww that sucks, I can identify with losing pics.. We lost all our NL pics. So no photo memories (However I did climb a rock-face and pull off some pieces of it. Can I interest you in a piece of rock? lol) My condolences for the loss of your pics!
