My computer just died.
I had problems yesterday with hard drive space. I just got a message that there was hard drive failure. Now it just keeps running a program that tries to fix the failure but isn't able to and wants to repeatedly reboot. Then it just shut down.
Luckily I backed up everything last month onto an external hard drive. I won't pretend to know how to work this external hard drive as everything converts to files I don't understand.
My main concern is my videos. On the external hard drive they all look like snapshots. Oh well, at least I have my info and I'm sure I can take it somewhere to figure out my next step.
I sort of knew that my computer wouldn't last much longer but it's just never a good time to fork out money for a new computer, you know?
I need internet access. Need. I don't have a smart phone so a computer is my only option.
Am I the only one without a smart phone?
I'm using B's computer right now and I'll be honest. This laptop sharing doesn't work that well for us. I don't really know how to use his and he doesn't really share his toys well :) We also don't like to take turns. I suppose this should teach us how to share and be nice!
On the bright side, this should really motivate me to get my blogging done in the morning while B is at work and maybe I can get other things done in the evening while Peanut is sleeping.
Do you have one household computer or do you have more than one?
P.S. Go back up your info! Back up your blogs while you're at it. It's really easy to do- just export it to your computer.
P.P.S. Somedays can only be made better with babies and doggies.
