Tonya Harding Pregnant & then ………………..

I awakened this morning to the dizzyingly, terrific news that the NW skating ‘legend’ Tonya Harding (Price) is pregnant. I was ecstatic over the trash gene pool being extended in the Pacific NW. Then again, maybe there is another triple axle gene in there. Then my day descended, as my week pretty much has, (did anyone notice some odd forces at play this week? Full moon stuff?) into a morass of regrets. Two days ago, my Blackberry completed its’ own triple axle into the toilet and despite all manner of efforts to dry it out, it is kaput. But, things were about to get worse.

Now, an immensely bigger fumble on my part: I transferred hundreds upon hundreds of family pics from my computer to an external hard drive to free up needed gigs. I have done this before. No probs. So, as I moved a folder over into the external gizmo (without verifying they actually loaded!…they always had before) I ERASED the folder from my computer. On and on I went freeing up 20 gigs of space…..that is  how many pics I had stashed on the hard drive.

Woe is me! They did not load for whatever reason. I cannot find them cued up and waiting. Gone. Some, many of these photo’s, were priceless treasures.Hundreds of pics of flies too.

So, verify the transfer, then and only then dump the duplicate folders. Ok, maybe I was too hard on Tonya Harding.

Update re my stupid move: Well, at least I did one thing correctly…I had previously subscribed to Carbonite. Well, despite the fact that I had indeed deleted the entire files, Carbonite had originally backed up those pics and based upon a tip from FB pal Mara, I found them. The restore mode will take awhile, but it will be worth the wait.

    You might be able to salvage the deleted folders yet. It might be worth it to take the drive in to a data recovery service and see if they can resurrect them, sometimes it’s possible. Worth a shot.
    Sorry to hear another confirmation that our species continues to evolve (or whatever it is that it’s doing) without the natural checks and balances that once weeded the retards out of the gene pool.

      Thanks Wayne. You know, over on FB a friend said too bad you didn’t have Carbonite. Well actually I did. I have found most of the pics….one folder in particular was important for today (my father in law’s Bday) It is a slow process, but going on 4 hours I have recovered some 300 pics. I also realize that hundreds upon hundreds might have been an understatement. Hope you are finally thawing out. Had a friend down from Butte, who felt things were looking up. Take care and again thanks. http://willfishforwork.com/
