All the fic that I'd completed over the past two months and just hadn't gotten around to posting, all the pictures I had saved from years of family vacationing and term papers that I had finished are gone. G-O-N-E.

This is what I get for not buying an external and backing up every byte of information when I was given the chance. Yeah. I'm stupid. I know. I ... I actually cried. Then I got over it and came up with a plan and tomorrow am headed to a computer store nearby to see if they can save any of my crap ... someone say a prayer, a chant, a whatever, to whomever you need to for me. PLEASE.

If all I get are the term papers and pictures I'll be happy. If my fangirl pics of DBSK and Star Trek are somewhere among all that, I'll be ecstatic XD

If they can't save anything? I'll mark it down as one of those things that just can't be helped and move the fuck on. Because if I can't get the stuff back then I might as well just start collecting pictures and plot bunnies all over again, right? Right?

Nope. They couldn't save squat. Since it's a Mac the Geek Squad didn't have the proper technology to check to see if anything was salvageable and the Mac store that I took it to explained that to try and find any information on the ruined drive would cost more than the computer itself. They gave me a new drive and my baby is up and running again, even though all the stuff on my old drive is now sitting at the bottom of a garbage bin. Such is life. I'll just have to make new memories and steal the music off the iPods of my friends all over again :)

don't forget to get an external hard drive when you get the chance.

I got one today :)

You feel up to sending me files of DBSK and MBLAQ as soon as I get MSN on my computer again?

sure. no idea how long it could take to send all the files though.

Thanks anyway. I'll text you or something when I get my computer functioning the way I want it to again.

Read the reply I made to Kacy's comment above. I'll be okay.

O-O I can't even imagine. My parents got me a 1 TB external as my Christmas present, so I've shoveled all my junk onto it.

I hope they save your files from the Great Digital Beyond.

The Great Digital Beyond has swallowed my files and done with them what it wants (primarily not given them back to me).

Funny thing is, I went out and bought an external today in the hopes that something could be professionally salvaged and stored but now have absolutely NOTHING to put on it. Ah well. I'll have files of crap on this baby in no time I'm sure :)

Noes! *cries*

Those computer boys are pretty wily, I hope they will be able to save your stuff!

I broke my external hard drive. I feel your pain
