Boo Hoo Hooo...Sob *#!''. I think my hard drive has crashed... I backed up last day of Dec...I think I am going to cry really hard. I will get the verdict on Tuesday. I have Don's computer which I can use.... but its very emotional going through his things...I noticed that the last backup he did was the day before he went to hospital in April... it seems really odd sitting here at his little keyboard. The bench was specifically designed for his height in the wheelchair, which means I almost need a six inch rise to get my fingies properly on the keyboard...

I can still blog but have no email access except through travellers mail which is limited...

I know its not the end of the world,,, and we\ve all been there and done that...

When I said "Nooooo" on the phone to the mechanic guy, he said calmly, "Well it is just a machine...they don't go forever"

Sounds like the mechanic guys is also just a machine, LOL! I'd be lost without my computer. I hope it will all work out for you, somehow.

eternally curious...no he is a really good guy, just being practical...what I think he meant was maybe I should have done more backups...as a machine is finite and had reached its finiteness... ot something
Sling...Nup... its fried... but the big back up 31st Dec should have most emails etc on it...hopefully... luckily the blog has all your contacts or I really would be heartbroke.
