Computer Explosion

Computers and antiques. Such complete opposites of each other (well, unless you have an OLD one) but when you are in the business of selling the latter online then you need the former.

I've been running on a wing and a prayer since the Great Christmas Day Computer Crash of 2010...when I lost my entire address book and a lot of my hard drive files. Well, now the hard drive has really gone kerplunky. KERPLUNKY! Is that even a word? It has ceased to exist as my working team member, that's all I know. We have been pretty good about backing things up since the GCDCC '10 but I am trying to figure out whether to replace the hard drive or to buy a new computer. Currently I am using my laptop (I realize how blessed I am to have both.) The problem with relying on my laptop as a back up is....none of my usual photo editing programs, outlook express, and other handy items are on it.

So, this could work out well for my followers/customers. I might just have to have a sale this week instead of listing new items. Or maybe a combination of the two.

Stay tuned!

Yuck for you. I feel you pain. My Honey takes care of all those decisions here. I think we've replaced our hard drive a time or 2...

I'm so sorry! What a mess when you lose that really important link to your business work. Hope it is resolved really soon.
