If it’s not one thing, it’s another . . .

This week has been absolutely horrendous! I was worried sick about Johnny, and anything and everything that could have possibly gone wrong did. Sometime I think I have that little Murphy guy riding around in my back pocket.

I told you that my main laptop decided to take a powder on me. This means I have to switch everything over to my NextBook which is one of those NetBooks that just wants to be a real laptop. It’s only 32-bit and it only has a 64 GB hard drive in it. Most of my design software won’t even install on it. Either it’s too big or it’s 64-bit.

Before I retired it, I managed to pull everything off of it and onto a 6 terabyte hard drive that I have for backup. Great!!! I didn’t lose my pictures or my music. This morning I thought to put my photos and some of my music on this laptop. This one only has a 64 GB hard drive.

I plugged in that back up hard drive. After about 2 minutes, nothing happened. I unplugged the drive and plugged it back in. Nothing happening. I tried one more time. This time the drive connected. If nothing else I was going to get my pictures off and to heck with the music for right now.

I started copying the pictures. About 30 seconds into the copy, the hard drive disconnected and I got a message that the computer didn’t recognize the device. After a few seconds it connected again on it’s own, but it disconnected every few seconds. Not enough to copy the pictures.

  • I lost all of my pictures.
  • I lost all of my music.
  • I lost all of the custom graphics that I had for different websites.
  • I lost two programs that I had purchased over a year ago that I depend on for most of my graphics.  I can’t find the receipt or anything else to recover it from the legal server.  Of course, it was on the backup drive.

I took the drive over to a friend who hooked it up to his computer. Same thing happened there too. I’ve had this drive for less than a year, and it’s hardly been used, and it’s failing already.

Planned Obsolescence?

Go figure…

For all of my old Democrat friends who just can't wait for Liz or Bernie to get elected. Just can't wait to start grabbing all of that free stuff.
Good Boy!!!
