Hard Drive Blues



Woke up this morning.......I was in a good mood.......got a call from the shop......my hard drive's no good.......etc.

Yep, the hard drive in my laptop has gone to silcon heaven, I need a new one fitted and in total it will cost me £135. Then there's the lost documents, photo's etc and the hassle of re-installing all the software and programs, oh well! The Buddhist in me is saying everything is cool and to keep a smile on my face, and you know what, it don't matter and I still feel chilled. It's a good job I bought an external hard drive and transfered most of my stuff onto it, so it's not hit me too bad. And I should have my computer back tomorrow.

I have been in a good mood since the memory card arrived for my phone yesterday, I can't believe how small it is, but it means my phone can now hold music, so it's a phone, my blogging camera, a radio, and an MP3 player, I love it!

Speaking of photo's the above ones are of the Humber bridge, taken last week whilst off work.

my 'puter is a bit ill, let alone
gone to heaven! LOL!

sound system in your pocket - have
loads of fun!!

And the moral of this tale is backup to DVD or external hd all your important data. £135 is a lot to shell out, but laptops are cheap to buy, even more expensive to repair.

Kev, next time you're flush give us a buzz on the old 'dog n' bone' and we'll neck a few jars.

I'm impressed wi ya piccies, the minimalism of using a phonecam works for you. I'm worried that cos I've just bought a 'prosumer' camera I might lose my 'edge', but then I am related to 'scary spice', so I should be alright ?
