Don't you just love Computers!

Disaster struck my computer on Thursday when something crashed Outlook and I lost all my email contacts and history in one fell swoop. Whilst I haven't really lost any of the important stuff (I hope) it has been a very frustrating exercise. The computer has gone off to hospital in the hope of retrieving some of the information, although I am not confident. In the mean time I have to share with significant other and when he is not around, I rush in here to catch up on various blogs and check emails via the web. Hopefully the computer is back very soon with a new bigger hard drive and better speed.

my husband got me a very valuable gift for xmas...a 138gig external drive. I keep EVERYTHING work related, photos, documents, ebooks, and lists of things I don't want to lose. I run programs from it and everything. That way, if I have a problem with my lappie, it is all on my external. I only plug in the external when I am using it. You may want to look into getting one :)

I think computer problems should be ranked in the top 5 most stressful events :-( I still remember my first big computer disaster even though it was 15 years ago.

Definitely thinking about the external drive thingy. Sounds like an excellent idea.

Like Lisa I got myself a huge external drive. It gives me peace of mind that all my important stuff is on there!

How's your doggie doing?
