A Stitch in Time
So my computer disappeared over this weekend. IBM ThinkPad, complete with power cord, Ethernet cord, floppy drive, carry bag, and a piece of moss-green 100lb-strength cord.
I got very, very lucky I backed up my important files over the summer. All the work I've done since August is on the web: either in email archives and the like, or on my website. That makes my main loss in records of personal communication — my chat logs and off-list emails, etc.
On the upside, I got a very nice fortune cookie at dinner. :)
You can see beauty in ordinary things. Do not lose this ability.
I filed a report today, and, wonderously, public safety found it in the computer cluster.
My mother suggests that whoever took it returned it (perhaps because I have a power-on password?) because we'd checked the cluster on Sunday and it was not there.
Lesson of the Day
I guess my New Year's resolution this year is to back up my files more frequently. :)
archie the office cockroach on beauty - oh, come now, it is kinda relevant, isn't it?
