I had to completely throw away my hard drive. I also had to throw away my 120GB Passport external backup drive which blew the next day, leaving me pretty much wasted. I lost my calendar, my emails, my address book, 6 years of journals, Christmas letters, wry observations on life, over 5,000 mp3 files, thousands of pictures and just about everything else.
I am now back with a vengeance. I had a 300GB drive laying around that I installed, re-installed my XP OS and was able to find some of my software to re-install and a lot of it I really didn’t want anyway. The upside is that my drives & configurations are now clean as a whistle and my old computer is blazing fast. My problems with slow internet speeds are over, now I’m hitting over a GB according to CNET’s modem speed test.
So… Hello again.
It’s nice to get back in the saddle again.
