i know i've blogged about this before...my love/hate relationship with computers. yes. i know i have because once a year or so my computer makes me jump through hoops. this time the term "panic-attacks" doesn't even begin to come close to an accurate description of my experience.
i'm not going to go through the play-by-play of it all. i will just say that i have been schooled by my computer and hard drive. did you know you can lose everything on your hard drive? yep, you probably did. in fact, judging by the look on the Best Buy workers face, i am one of very few naive people out there who didn't know this. it doesn't take much really. and then, poof. gone. seriously, totally gone. pictures, digi files, music, programs. gone. tears were shed. heart palpatations occured. i assure you i am not being dramatic. i came face to face with my total dependence on my computer and hard drive - and it wasn't pretty.
so lesson learned. the hard way. the hardest way. i will back EVERYTHING in creation up - three fold. period.
oh, and thank you to donna - computer diva extraordinaire. stacey - cs3 diva extraordinaire. and stephan, for occasionally bringing me back from that oh so dark, rocking myself, crazed stare, senseless mumbling, state of being.
