Computer Woes :(

My laptop is sick right now, so I won't be posting for a time. It won't even start up. (I'm using my dad's computer right now). Apparently my hard drive went bad. I'm worried that I won't be able to save my files. We took it to the Apple store Genius Bar, but they couldn't do anything there. They've recommended me to another place, but it isn't guaranteed that they'll be able to rescue my stuff, either. 

I'm REALLY glad that I backed up most of my novels and stories to Google Docs, but I didn't back up the edited version of my latest novel, which is a little scary to me, because I worked really hard on that. And most of my 8,000+ photos are not backed up anywhere... yikes.

I've learned a tough lesson: don't put too much trust in your computer. ALWAYS BACK UP YOUR STUFF! Believe me, this isn't a fun situation to be in. As soon as I get my computer up and running, I'll back up my photos and the edited version of my novel.

So bear with me... I'll be back as soon as I can.

That's not fun.
Makes me feel glad I just completed a back-up... *mops brow*

Hope it feels better soon!! :)

Ouch! I'm sorry, I hope you can get back all your stuff! :S
Be looking forward to when you're back!

Oy! The same type of thing happened to me, but thankfully I was able to get my stuff back. I made a post about it on my blog here:

I hope that you can get your stuff back!

Anyway, I like your blog and I think that we have some of the same interests.


P.S. I found your blog off of my friend, Earwen's blog.

That stinks. I hope it works.

Sorry about your computer, I hope you'll get it all fixed soon.
