My computer had an aneurysm today. I spent all evening and night trying to figure out what was wrong, and eventually had to reformat the hard drive. ARGH!!! I was on the verge of tears the whole time.
Fortunately, the last time I backed up my system was at the end of July, so although I lost a month's worth of information, I still have a great deal more than I ever have after one of these disasters.
And even though I lost all the pictures and individual videos from Comic-con, I still have the video compilations up on YouTube, so I'll have those when I download them.
And at least it wasn't a problem that I had to get physically repaired.
Here hoping the problem is fixed and I can move on.

*dramatic siiiigh*
blarr. ioweurbsdf. Oh well, I feel less frustrated now.

Oh poopies! Hmmm, at least it's still running? That's not comforting at all, is it? I lost all of my stories once. Not fanfiction or anything but my real stories. Till this very day, I wonder about that specific scene from my latest story that I will neverEVER get back. It's a love-hate relationship I have with this contraption.
I hope you are feeling better about it. Especially about the Comic-Con related stuff.

It sucks. The last time I had a hard drive meltdown (before I had an external hard drive to back up my system on) I lost a huge chunk of the digital pictures I'd taken since I got my first camera. I think since I started writing, because of Nano I'm very careful about backing up my stories. In fact, I wrote a story for a friend on Friday night, and the only reason I have it now is because something made me want to email it to myself before I went to sleep. That might be one of the reasons that I'm not as upset...cause that was one of the most important things I would have lost.
I'm feeling much better now, thank you. Next time I'll put all my favorite Con pictures online right away.

I am so sorry, that is the worstest ever. I am glad that you are so amazing with computers as to figure out how to fix yours. Hugs a lot.
