I had a major issue with my computer. I guess I had a virus or some such thing, and my machine wouldn't function at all. I had to re-install the whole system, and lost all my data. Luckily all of my music is saved on an external drive and all of my photos have been saved on external storage, so it wasn't really that bad. I had some documents and spreadsheets that I would have liked to have kept, but it's not the end of the world.
After wrestling with it for quite some time, I finally got the e-mail reconfigured, but I lost my address books. Again, not the end of the world, but it's been a pain in my ass all night long.
I'll spend the next few days re-installing software, downloading applications and reworking the "look and feel". All that fun stuff.
Of course I'll have my eyes open for the free agent signings, trades, and whatnot.
Oh, and the Carolina Hurricanes Stanley Cup Champions DVD will be released this Tuesday (the 11th), so that'll be my "thing to do".
This is the third time this has happened to me, and yet I still fail to learn the following easy lessons: (1) back up ALL of my data once in a while; (b) do not let the registration lapse on anti-virus software.
I don't suppose I'll learn this time either.
Also, I have been having issues with the (un)reliability of my cell phone. I don't have a land line, and since my whole computer was down and my celly was iffy, I was temporarily unavailable to anyone using an electronic device.
It's all good now.
