No picture today? 
 Nahhh... it's a public service announcement after all!

And it's a SIMPLE one:


We have been without a computer all week.

On Monday, without warning, the hard drive crashed.

LUCKILY, I had a system backup 
thanks to a 
VERY good friend
who set it up for me
after she helped me update
my old family videos.

It wasn't as up-to-date as I would have liked
(because I don't have it back up constantly),
but it sure saved us the hassle of
resetting settings,
and we haven't lost a GREAT deal of work or pictures.

That concludes my announcement.
I will return
you and myself
to our regular schedule
of cruising about 
the Blogosphere.

Thanks Fox!
I picked up the computer yesterday (it's an iMac) and had it up an running in about an hour. I had a Time Machine backup and it restored everything and all the files to the way they were at the last backup. Then I just had to catch up on software updates.

If my friend hadn't suggested storing our old movies on a terabyte external hard drive and also making it a time machine, I hate to think what we could have lost and how hard getting all those settings just right would have been.

I don't know WHY the hard drive failed. It certainly wasn't full, but we do have five people using it.

Now I just have to catch up with everybody in Blogland - things move fast out there!

I'm sorry to hear about your hard drive -- that is scary, indeed. A close call, but since you're a Mac (like everyone in my family), and one who uses Time Machine, a catastrophe was averted. Yea!!
