Dear blogging friends, this has been a very trying day, both physically and emotionally. Then I came home this evening to find that my computer had crashed. Dell tech support ran some tests over the phone and informed me that the operating system is corrupted. I need to wipe out and reload the whole system, but I do not have any backup. Now I somehow need to retrieve all my data from a computer that will not run. Tomorrow a tech is coming over to remove my hard drive and put it in another computer, hopefully retreiving the files. But if the source of the problem is a bad hard drive, this will not work and I will lose all my files. If everything works well, I should be up and running sometime this weekend, we will see. I am writing this from my husband's computer. Of course I have no e-mail, so if you want to contact me, please use my husband's e-mail, which I will be checking throughout the day. The address is:
firstname.lastname@example.org Please do not forget me, and I will be giving you updates on the problem, but I have no access to pictures without a lot of trouble.
