I just saved myself a whole heap of time! How, I hear you ask? Well, yesterday I went to my dad and stepmoms for a barbecue with the rest of her family. I took a bunch of pictures and movies. Then we went and saw the local illegal-as-fu** fireworks show (I think I lost some arm hair to a couple of the roman candles). I took photos and full movie action shots of the fireworks going off low and RIGHT over our heads. Then, I came home and downloaded the photos to my desktop. This afternoon, I deleted the folder on my desktop. I thought it was empty and that I had removed all the photos. I hadn't.

So you see, I saved myself ALL KINDS of time on editing photos and posting them and movies in this entry. WHAT a timesaver!

Wow, I wish I'd thought of that.

Yeah, making the post just BREEZED right by. Think of how much more time I'd saved yesterday if I had thought of not taking pictures at all!

It could still be in the recycle bin if you did not empty that too......

I checked. I checked the unerase features with Norton. And I hecked the kodak software in case it had a backup area.

When Yvonne lends me the hardpix she took of her bday karaoke party, I'll make sure not to let you delete them by accident, kay?
(And she wants to scan them somehow, somewhere...)

yeah, last night I was trying to watch a vid, my Mac wasn't responding, so I rebooted, it doesn't boot, I get the Disk Utility, and it will not only not repair, it clicks of death now.....

Have an inkling of what you feel!!!

Isn't that a brand new mac??

between my powerbook and this Mac Mini I've had it in for hard drive repairs 3 times in one year.

On the plus side it may be the logic board as the CD drive didn't show at the repair store as well, which did work for me once.

check my lj for my other news of the day... :'(

I'm sure there are other products on the market, but this one has worked very well for me when I've needed it. It's amazing what it manages to bring back from the dead.

Crumbs. You being the wonk you are I thought it would work, but apparently the free version isn't strong enough. And I'm not missing the pics enough to pay for the big version. Thanks for trying, though.

Did you wear an army helmet to the fireworks show? I had friends who would get them and paint fun sayings on them. Didn't really stop them from nearly blowing their faces off though. :)

(and yes, I have pillaged a Zim icon from you, with credit of course)

I don't own an army helmet, but damned good idea. Next year I'm wearing long pants, too. It didn't break the skin but at one point they blew up a gatorade bottle and I got shrapnelled...

And pillage away, it makes me smile like an idiot!
