We witnessed a death today.....the death of our 6-yr-old computer. We try not to get so attached to our worldly possessions, but this was tragic because, you see, there were thousands and thousands of photographs of our sweet little beautiful, adorable children. We do backup pictures onto CDs every so often, but we've gone too long without backing things up. So sad. FORTUNATELY we still have the originals (our children) so we'll be able to take more pictures and we can still enjoy their adorability (I know, not really a word...).

Anyhow, I'm posting this is to explain the reasoning behind the lack of pictures in the next several (possibly many) posts. I don't mean to be boring....really, I don't. But words will just have to do for now.

So Sad! Ironic it happens after you write about record keeping. I lost many pictures myself a few years back and it's hard to lose those. I suggest taking the hard drive to a computer person, and see if they can salvage anything. Even if the computer doesn't work anymore, you should be able to get the pictures back! The only time I believe you can't is if it was burned by fire or flooded. So, look around. Just don't throw out the computer just yet! After that's done, try selling the computer on ebay. people buy them for parts. You may be able to get some money back. Worth a shot.

I agree, I've heard that most times you can get a computer tech to retrieve the photos.

At least you do have some photos on the blog.

But really, that just stinks.

You can buy a kit to put your old hard drive in and load up the files onto your new computer. We've done it twice when one computer died and when one needed a new hard drive. It's like a little case that you put the hard drive in with a USB cable. You should look into it. It's been very nice to not lose anything.
