You have just been erased…

Words no one wants to hear. Especially when it means five years of files, photos, documents, programs, blood sweat and tears have just been sent rushing down the drain like an unclogged sink full of water.


Sure, I was able to recover some files. But five years of contacts, phone numbers, email addresses, you know, the stuff that is really tough to replace, those things are all gone.

Makes one feel a little numb…so I am off to go pout.

 I’ve just been erased! (I’m sticking my tongue out at the damn pc right now if you need a visual) I know, very adult.

If I would’ve bothered to back that very pertinent information up in a secondary place then, I wouldn’t be crying now.

I know that.

But I didn’t.

So I am.

Well, looks like my recovery process has completed and it is time to reboot….though when I rejoin my laptop, it won’t be with the same info or settings or even the garauntee that the stupid virus that caused this whole mess is gone.

It is kind of like living in a house, I guess. After five years, you have it just the way you want it. Then when it burns down, you are left with this very empty feeling. And it sucks.

No clever ending tonight folks…I’m just not there.

I’m off to go rebuild the geeky part of my world. Very big frowny face!

Hope your day was better than mine. And that you never have to be erased.

Lots of love
