a hard drive
Many of you who follow my blog know I have a bit of trouble driving on the road. In a quick summary, I hit a dog, felt terrible, developed a Post traumatic shock disorder thing; little or no driving in about seven years. Devastating yes, but today is different.
The hard drive to my computer was viciously attacked by spy ware that promised to save me after it attacked me. How cold hearted is that? For the first time in my life I wished I could find a big bug and drop it in “their” site. I spent three and half hours trying desperately to get free, and save my precious hard drive.
I’d like to find their address so I could send my request for compensation of them, losing for me, over 500 posts, articles or blogs (what ever you call them is fine by me.). I lost approximately 384 photos. I lost all of my children’s stories. Lost the only Christmas story I ever wrote. Everything on that hard drive: four blogs, three wikizines! Time to get a usb; run them on hard copy print, and you know what?
After I calmed a down a bit, I felt like going for a drive around the block. At 10:30 pm where do you go? I sat in my little van and played the only radio station that’s received (no joke.) Got out, slammed the door and started setting up the new used computer that’s been waiting for me in the dining room to give it a test drive. Yes sir, a hard drive there too. I’m still loading stuff in.
