Computer Crash

My computer crashed last night. Thankfully we were able to recover most of our family pictures. However, I did lose most of the pictures for my upcoming posts. My computer is back up and running, but it seems to be on it's last leg. I think it's probably time to shop for a new one.

I lost all my bookmarks and a lot of other information. It might take me a few days, but I should be back up and running soon.

It seems like my computer and me are having a love/hate relationship lately.

See ya soon!

  2. Ahhh that really sucks!!! I am so sorry. I've been thinking lately that I should probably back up all my stuff, too. Scary! I hope things go well with the shopping. Shopping for a new computer is fun, though. :)

  3. So sorry to hear about that :( I know how frustrated I got when it happened to me. Good luck trying to extract whatever you can out of it over the weekend.
    The good news is: time for a lovely new computer.

  7. Computers can be so frustrating! Sorry you lost your pictures and bookmarks! After that happened to me I signed up for Mozy and it backs up my computer and bookmarks every night.

  8. I went through that TWICE last year - it's so frustrating and aggravating. At least you didn't lose any family stuff -

    Good luck with the computer shopping!

  9. Ugh! I am SO sorry sweetie! I almost died when my computer crashed this summer. I lost all of my bookmarks as well (and I had a TON). My new solution is to just bookmark everything in Google reader and to upload my photos to blogger as soon as I put them on my computer. As long as Google doesn't crash...I'll be able to survive the next blue screen of death that comes my way.

    Good luck shopping!

  11. Kim, I know what you mean about a love/hate relationship with your computer. I have gotten to a point, it is hard to live without it. If for no other reason than to stay in touch with my fellow bloggers.

    I hope all works out, because it is always a treat to read your post and your kind comments.

    Have a great weekend...

  19. What the heck were you thinking letting your computer drive anyway? Was the car damaged badly in the crash?

  20. Sorry that you lost some pictures but at least you were able to recover family ones. This post has convinced me to back up files ASAP!

  21. Think about getting a desktop portable hard drive. I've had very good luck with Iomega Drives and you can get one for less then $100...well worth it to save your data. And you can set it for automatic backup too.

  22. I have a major fear of this happening to me, especially as my pc is dying, so I bought an external hard drive to back everything up on.

  23. Kim, I really feel for you. Sooner or later it happens to everyone and it's an awful thing to go through. Life is so complicated sometime.
