woe is my computer.

I want to throw my computer into the Genessee River. It has been coughing and hacking along, but tonight I believe it bleeped its last pathetic bleep at me. Now, if I had ever been attached to it emotionally, I would be sad, but the truth is that the whole time I typed away on it, my heart was unfaithfully lusting after a mac.

Honesty is the best policy, right?

Well, perhaps my computer didn't think so because we argued and I said some really mean things and it spitefully ate a couple of files. Or rather, made them completely inaccessible. And then began a slow and maddening descent into the realm of Complete Meltdown.

Taunting me is not going to win back my heart, Lenovo. Oh no it's not.

At least all of my scans are safe and sound, backed up six times in a couple locations. Who me? Paranoid? Huh?

So I have no Weekly Kafka as of yet, but I do still have a phat sale going at the shop. Prints are still buy one get a pack of holiday cards free OR buy two prints get the third free.

Rock on, babies. Hopefully I'll have more of the pup up for you soon!

Yes, get a Mac. You'll never look back. Besides we NEED our weekly Kafka.

Urgh, that sounds tormenting!

I'm an avid backer-up-erer too. At least all my illo scans are backed up and spread across locations... all my accounts and paper work... that's another story :)

Hope your computer woes are sorted out soon, and we get to see Kafka again.

p.s. thanks so much for your kind congratulations too! :D

Macs rule. I can't help it ... I love them. My old power mac here is getting pretty geriatric, but we just keep propping it up. Your post is a good reminder to back everything up. Twice.
