We have an external hard drive as a back up. It is just as well as today I was informed by the pc repair company that of the two drives on our computer, the failed drive contained everything. Why weren't they shown separately so that I knew where things were? Counting the cost of this loss is yet to fully measured. I don't know how the back up drive works and I don't have much faith in it. I manually backed up everything before we bought the new computer. The computer returns tomorrow, without anything on it.
We received a scare letter in the mail today about the new underground Metro Rail to be built nearby. R is in a foul mood about it and is banging on about why didn't we move when the project was announced. Well, who would have known we would be almost be sitting on top of a railway station. If everything is true in the letter, during the construction period we are in a dire situation living here.
I am in a foul mood because I had almost completed the process of migrating our Telstra isp email to Gmail. All I need is a code word in our Telstra email, but it just won't open.
Wise people say things like, one day your hard drive will crash and you need to have everything backed up. Wise words, but after twenty years of losing almost nothing, I was complacent. Take a lesson from that.
I am ready to open a vein, but instead I will go to bed and watch on my tablet a cog railway train in Switzerland climb a mountain, or perhaps, ten things to dislike about Australia.
Almost a proper post done for tomorrow morning. It may be a while before the next one.
