CRASH

Posted in life, NaNoWriMo at 10:00 0 by gillsmoke

So Today is the last day of NaNoWriMo 2006. I have worked on my novel besides my listed word count. I did backup day to ward off the crash gremlins, and I had one anyway. I lost everything. Everything meaningful to me was in the Documents and Settings folder. All personal settings, all project files, manuals for most equipment I’ve worked on, pictures, everything. Now the rest of the directory structure was safe just Documents and Settings got hosed. Smitfraud-C.Toolbar888 was the culprit, I even know where I picked it up. I got it from “Chris Pound’s random name generator”. I feel dirty and clean at the same time. Now the recovery process begins. I lost about a gig of raw data.
