When it rains it pours? When it’s gone, it’s gone

putting the pieces together

Just a quick note, someone’s putting the pieces of the puzzle together to create a new theme for the blog so you might see something wonky or out of place (or not because the designer is cool and powerful. Hint: not me). If everything goes well, my blog will be wearing something new just in time for my birthday. My birthday is coming up in a few days and I thought, I don’t need a new dress or shoes but I do need a good blog design so I’ll be getting that wish soon. Watch out for it!

M’s 5 year old Sony Vaio left us two days ago. It just sort of, DIED. Investigation and cause of death is still under investigation.

As if that wasn’t enough, my small HP notebook which we bought last June kind of died too. No we are not PC destroyers *don’t look at me like that!* – the HP one was already showing some signs of abnormality the moment we brought it from the store so there, wasn’t anyone’s fault. It’s under warranty so we have a chance to have it back working again.

As for the Vaio, I am just so, so glad I was able to transfer all my files to a portable hard disk drive before the catastrophic event. If not, I don’t know what would I do. I mean, I have photos of myself going through labor in that Vaio hard drive, along with other precious moment photos.  While my files are safe, my husband wasn’t lucky enough. Since he always says he’s busy, busy, busy to do backup…his files ditched him. I bet all of them are laughing in hell.

Sorry for the mention of “rain” in the title. No, rain is still elusive. We’re still bone dry here however, enjoying the cooler weather and blue skies. Luigi and Tammy betted it’ll rain today. Let’s see!

  1. Oh no! But I must ask..what are you doing to your computers???
    So sad. And it’s such a big event when there’s a computer problem, tech addicts that we are.

    Well, the Vaio is not mine, it’s my hubby’s computer. It’s more than 5 years old and showing signs of distress..I had no hand in destroying it. The HP, it has a factory defect and HP’s going to replace but would take time. No PC/internet at home for some days/weeks!

  2. I immediately thought of rain when I saw your post title!!

    That really stinks about both computers going out at the same time. I have learned to put everything on external drives. It has saved me a few times!

  4. Maybe he overloaded drive C with files again that programs can’t run anymore? What are you guys doing with the Vaio now (to fix it)? I can try to fix it. But only try and only when M has decided to stop fixing it himself or can’t find anymore solution…
