Came home and was greeted at the door by husband. Unusual. I should have guessed.
The computer has died. Or at least, seems to have died. No output, lights on but nobody home sort of thing.
So we have a new computer - which is good. I have even managed to get it running. Also good. And connected with the Internet, and major programs installed. All good.
However, I don't know if the data on our hard drive is recovereable. Not so good.
Fortunately I had backed everything up a week ago, to a removable hard drive. Good.
Unfortunately "everything" did not include my emails. Or my email address.
Which is a roundabout way of saying if you do not hear from me, I am not ignoring you. Please email me and I will reply (and be glad to know I have your address!)
I'm hoping to connect the hard drive to another computer on Friday and retrieve what I can. I'm really hoping that will include all emails. I'm just a little scared that it might not!
However, I am still smiling (wryly!) and I haven't killed anyone yet. Or even sworn too much!
Oh, the deep, deep joy of computers.
