A few weeks ago I was using the ole' home computer putting new books on my Nook. I got side tracked and when I returned the computer was no longer functioning as it should. This happens occasionally, so I did what anyone would do, I turned it off and on. Sadly this did not help and John has been trying to bring the system back to life ever since. A few nights ago as he attempted to fix it he asked me what files and documents I wanted saved. I thought about it and decided NOTHING. Well, other than the thousands of pictures (that were backed up else where) and our music files. The only thing I really cared about what the Excel file that I track all my race data in, which I had emailed to myself a month ago so I had a recent copy. Other than that, bookmarks - start over, half completed projects - start over, passwords to websites I never use - start over.
It's sort of liberating!
If this happened on my work computer I would cry real tears for an hour and bitch about it for months. A good reminder to ALL OF YOU TO BACK UP YOUR COMPUTERS! Not that I would know what the hell to do to with a back up drive, but I assume a nearby tech nerd would know.
