    Default Back from the Dead!

    WHOOPEE!!!

    I have such good news: I have a new computer...a laptop now. And it was FREE!

    No, I'm not an African child. No, I'm not joking either. My son gave it to me--he got it for free, and I got it from him. It's a decent HP--not new, but nearly. It has a port replicator so I can plug in my good BIG flat-panel HD monitor--which I did--extending my desktop to two monitors--a panoramic experience!

    I bought a new keyboard and mouse and an EXTERNAL portable hard drive so I can back up and store everything there too, and take it here or there with me. But even with this good news, there's absolutely BETTER news:

    I did not lose my edited novel!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I had apparently EMAILED a copy of it to myself last month--and forgotten about it! The entirely edited version (with illustrations and formatting!) is INTACT! God Bless Web Mail, is all I can say. Had I been using Outlook it would be gone. This was the one that really SUCKED to lose--I lost the book I had been working on that wasn't finished, but I wasn't really crazy about that one so much--it was nonfiction anyway--a cookbook. So it can be easily reconstructed. The other books are all on my flash drive, in their final edited versions.

    Not only THAT--but I also got all the purchased games I had back! They were ALSO in my web mail "saved" folders on both Yahoo and my other webmail account.

    So out of both entirely trashed drives, I got the most important part of it back--and some extras I loved; the rest is gone. But that's okay. I have been so happy tonight I just had to share. Not to mention the fact that I am back on the forum actively now--so I'll be able to contribute $$, cthree--which I could not do because of the computer crash. Maybe now the ads will go away!

    And Rusty---thank you again for all your help. I gave my drives to a tech friend of my son's to see if he can unstick the one--and maybe see what he can do about recovering any of it. I don't have a lot of hope--I'm counting my blessings here, and I won't push my luck.

    But it's really really GOOD to be BACK!!

    Oh...one other thing. I can no longer access the forum from work, (during the day, M-F), but will have to wait until evening to log on. They've blocked all access to unauthorized websites now on our workstation computers.

    Bah humbug to them. They have no idea how pleasant it is to be here!

    sorry for the work issue - (I am sure you'll make it through that glitch - I don't get to be here through the work day either - thought about getting internet for my phone so I could! but.... figured that could get hazardous for my driving so I passed on that so far! lol)

    Been quietly sending good thoughts your way C. So glad to here things are getting better. I thought of the fab artwork you shared with me at the reunion and cringed at the thought of the expanse of your loss. shivers!!!

    I was also saddened to here of the loss of your beloved pet. So, so sorry to hear that happened as well.

    Well! GF! Like they say what does not take you down makes you stronger.

    Guess you could be crowned worlds strongest woman of the year. eh?

    Lot's of love sent your way schweetie! Lot's
