My computer is down — well, technically, it’s up and running, but I’ve lost most of my files, and I’m leaving it alone while I wait to see if anything is recoverable — and I’m left with two observations:
1. I actually didn’t lose all that much, but what I lost is really important. Most of my stuff is out in the cloud at this point, but the two things that aren’t are my music files and my photos. Losing the music would be a bummer, as I’ve sold most of the discs, but in the long run I wouldn’t feel it that much. It’s the photos that I’d really hate to lose, and are worth what it would cost to see if they can be recovered.
2. What the hell did people do all day before computers? I’m actually not computer-less, as you can see from this post, but I really miss my computer. This keyboard doesn’t even feel right.
Oh well. Here’s hoping.
Update, 2/6/12: I ended up losing a great deal of music, but recovered nearly all of the photos. All is well.
