BOOO I say...

The bad news--hard drive crashed Friday night (I would say exploded, but since my sister's computer literally exploded once--yeah. sparks and all--I don't feel it would be fair to use the word). I may have cried a little.

The super bad news--I hadn't backed up any of my personal pictures since the summertime. Oh yeah. Did I mention I had a baby in November??? Do you remember that "may have" crying mentioned earlier? This was why it "may have" happened.

The good news that makes the super bad news a little less bad--I had posted most of my favorites on either my blog or facebook, so I was able to retrieve at least those.

The not good or bad news--We don't know if we will be able to retrieve any information off my drive. Time will tell, I guess.

The bad news that is sort of good news--I also lost all my music. Turns out you can transfer your iTunes purchases, though, as long as they are on your iPod. So most of the music I've bought online I have recovered. Also--This way I don't have to go through all my music and delete the songs I never listen to, or are substandard (which I was already trying to do--I believe I got to the J's...) Now I just have to rebuild my library by ripping (again) all my CDs from high school and college, and selecting only the songs that I absolutely love. Brilliant.

The good news--All my business photo files were backed up. But, I was about halfway done editing a wedding, and those weren't backed up, which means I have to start all over on those. Bummer. But not the end of the world.

The really good news--We replaced my failed 320 gig hard drive with a 1 terabyte drive. BooYah. I have almost 900 gigs of free space right now. :)

Oh yeah. And we finally invested in a backup system we've been meaning to get for a year or so now. Whoops. :)

Better late than never???

Like I said, I know how you feel kindda. Losing pictures is the worst! Good thing for us is that when we lost our desktop we both had laptops so nothing other than pictures were lost for good, like music and etc. Oh, I did lose videos I had made for roommates and my sister's wedding. Sad day!

Oh no!! I am so sorry. But the ones you have are super cute!! PS the Princess has been calling me everyday wondering when we are going to remedy her situation, i have had to block calls. We need to do something about this soon. :)

Oh my. That is serious... DEADLY serious.

Oh man, what are the odds- the exact thing happened to our Mac last week. Lucily we had apple care and they replaced the hard drive, but yeah- we lost all picts and music we had on their since last July. Sad. And we also upgraded to a 1 terabyte drive, how funny.

That is so funny! Bizarro!

So I know this comment is very late, but you know that comforter set you got? Where did you get it? I've been looking for a new comforter for awhile, and haven't found any I like. But I like yours!

Walmart! Can you believe it!? I had to buy the sheets separately, but the comforter, shams, and bedskirt (which we don't actually use) was around $60!
