Unpleasant surprises

The huge paperweight sitting on the floor there to my left is Porky -- my main computer. The computers on our network are named after the characters in The Little Rascals. I would have preferred Darla, but I ended up with Porky. I am no longer Porky, I'll have you know...

At any rate, one just assumes that when one gets up in the morning and pushes the button that things that have up to now turned on and whirred and behaved as normal are going to do so yet once again.

One may be surprised. I pushed buttons this morning and well.... dummm de dumm dummm...

At any rate, the posting about the beach and the seashell and my sister's seaweed-draped daughter rising like a goddess out of the waves will have to wait until we see if my data drive with all the photographs can be resurrected.

Thankfully for me, I am an obsessive person about regularly backing up -- at least twice day -- to external drives so it is business as usual. So all the photos are safe on the file server... but the pleasure of creating a visual journal for this blog will have to wait a bit...

I wish I was as well-organised as that.

What would we do without our computers?
