Home again

March 30th, 2008

I am writing this on my very own laptop.  My very own laptop devoid of any of the information I’ve spent years accumulating – but still my own laptop.  Unless you’ve emailed me (or commented here and left your email) in the past 2 weeks, I no longer have your email address – my address book was one of the things lost forever.  Also, if I haven’t commented on your blog in awhile, I may well have lost the address.  All of my bookmarks went bye-bye as well.  Only the blogs on my feed reader or in my blog roll are still known to me.  Also, if I forget your birthday this year – sorry about that.  My Outlook calendar also went *poof*.

My advice to everyone?  When you back up your information, which I did daily onto an external drive, make sure you include your Outlook calendar and address book as well as your favorites folder in your browser.  And while you are at it? 80% of you who visit me still use Internet Explorer – check out Firefox.  It is a free download and so much more wonderful than IE.  I’m resistant to change (hence my cursing Picasa this evening because my normal photo editing software hasn’t been reinstalled yet – it works fine I just can’t figure out a few things that I know how to do with my normal program) but Firefox is easy to love.

My sister in law is arriving tonight to visit for a couple of days and a friend from blogland is in town so we are hoping to visit with her before she leaves.  Sounds like a good week to come!
