Genealogy Journal Wednesday, October 28, 2009

Well Wednesday started out great but keep reading and you'll see how I had to cope with disaster.
  • Woke up early at 3am, made coffee and figured I had such a productive writing day on Tuesday that I could go for a repeat.  Was I wrong.
  • I'm saving much of the disaster description for my Data Backup Day post since, luckily, I had backed up my data the day before.  But not my settings.  The short story: I had to wipe the entire computer clean, reinstall the factory image, and reload all my programs and settings.  This is still going on and will take at least a week to finish.
  • My intent was to work on several posts including carnival deadlines since I will be in New York this weekend visiting Mom.  Well, that didn't happen!
  • Music today: no music - it takes too much concentration when you are working on reloading programs on the computer and dealing with settings.  Ugh.

It's always painful to read posts like this. This happened to me earlier in the year. My machine is just not the same. I feel for ya...
