While running a program to optimize my registry, my computer crashed. Therefore, the registry was fu**ed. Therefore, I have to reformat my hard drive.

Therefore, all the pictures from day 3 of Death Valley are only available as small pics at Snapfish.

Therefore, the full day I spent finding rare mp3s from the 80s was wasted.

Therefore, the awesome icon set of 80s lyrics I made and was so proud of is gone.

Therefore, all the movies of the Salt Creek pupfish in Death Valley are destroyed.

Therefore, the information on what flight nfayre is arriving on this evening is gone (although I remember enough to fake it perfectly well...)


THEREFORE, if I sent you anything cool in the last 2 months, or you sent me anything cool in the last two months, PLEASE email it back to me!

Oh, I back up regularly, absolutely. About every month or two. It's been about two months. Guess what I was originally planning on doing today? Backing up! That's right! I lost about the maximum I could possibly lose.

Therefore, I am not in as good a mood as I had originally hoped.
Current Mood: indescribableindescribable
Current Music: CDs, because I have no mp3s until the folks from Dell call back...

I hope things work out. I'm sure there has to be a way to get all of your stuff back...

Well, I've got backup from 2 months ago, but otherwise I've just reformatted my hard drive. Everything else is pretty much finito.

FYI, can you, preferably in a few days, send me the link for those books and for that one guys wallpapers?

If you have any uber-techie friends they could probably perform either a registy restore or repair install and maintain any existing file structure. Just a thought.

Too late. Reformatted.

Hopefully there will not be a next time but just in case, call me and jwoulf can walk you through the program that he has on his website.

What happened to your, um, extra computer?
(Either of the ones you had on your old desk...)
Frittersfritters on May 9th, 2008 12:05 am (UTC)
The iMac is so old that it's pretty much a backup drive at this point, none of the browsers will let it do much online anymore.

Is she cute? :P
Fritters: Ed Happy BIG by Frittersfritters on May 9th, 2008 02:56 am (UTC)

Yes she is.

Far left, next to me...
James Pruittdjinubito on May 9th, 2008 05:03 am (UTC)
ooooo, she IS. You should introduce us. :D

That picture is how old now???

You should have seen the pics of me in my dance costume! A few years ago, I used to take belly dancing classes. I'm thinking of taking it up again, now that I've heard a couple of the dancers from my old class opened their own studio. My last instructor got too focussed on performing. I was in it for exercise and fun and socializing far away from work. Not for performing. Sure as hell not for choreographing my own routine. So I quit.

And on that note, I'm running away. Fritters, I'm really sorry I didn't see this post before I went to the airport. I could have very easily emailed you another copy of my itinerary. At least it all worked out! Next time, I'll be sure to send you my parents' phone number. They'll always have my travel info ICE. Or I'll call you before I leave. Or something.

Ok, gone now. It's almost midnight here, and I need to get back on a mountain time schedule... Time zones suck.

...or something like that. Nearly.

Seriously, what are the odds of my hard drive needing reformatting the day you arrive??

...and djinubito? As far as I can tell, she looks exactly the same.
James Pruittdjinubito on May 19th, 2008 12:33 pm (UTC)
I approve....yes yes I do.
Nikki Fayre: Anita Comfortable Shoesnfayre on May 19th, 2008 04:01 pm (UTC)
Well, not exactly the same. Hair's longer. I think it was probably waist length when that photo was taken (not that you can tell). It's longer now... It's waist length in a braid......... There's other changes too, but I'm not going to go into them :Þ

Oh, and odds that the hard drive will crash on the day I arrive? For some reason, higher, just 'cause it's me...

Speaking of which, I really should rip my drives from my old computer out and bring them with me to Victoria. Maybe I can borrow the kid brother's external hard drive (mine's in Calgary) and transfer the last of the data off of them and eventually onto the new computer... There's a thought!
James Pruitt: Ryu Side View Ninja Gaidendjinubito on May 19th, 2008 10:28 pm (UTC)
Well that's okay, longer hair is cuter anyway. :P

That's...similar to what I did. Ended up "borrowing" an enclosure from work one weekend and transferred what data I could to my new compy. Though I had to space it out since it would start making the horrible clicking noises of death.
