Fell over cord, laptop crashed to floor. Laptop broken. Deep sorrow but had to keep it inside. All my stories, all my writing, all in there.

Geeks on Wheels tomorrow.

*is in mourning of the Takahe laptop* may sentence the death knell of writing... then again, a friend returned today from a massive gay swimming gathering in Copenhagen and said my last two short stories, about the swim meet, were just about spot on in every way *blush*!

But alas, they're trapped in there too...

RIP

When the Geeks show up, ask them to extract the HD. Then, when you get another laptop, you can ask the techs to remove the factory drive and insert the old one. Failing that, ask the Geeks to put the contents of the HD on a CD. You can then copy the CD contents to the HD of the new laptop/existing desktop.

Best advice for next time: get a portable hard drive that you can plug into the laptop so that you can back everything up to a remote source that can be used anywhere.

Yes, I married a computer guy. Can't you tell?

Eeeek! Hope everything gets rescued. It has to, the thought of those lovely stories being lost is unthinkable!

oh dear...hopefully something can be rescued from the hard drive. Also, if you have shared your stories with others maybe you can get copies back if needed....and maybe some are still in your Takahe LJ? Hopefully......

I think I have both swim stories, the old version of safe, and that squirrel thing. At least. In a rush to go and take Jamie to meet Viv but will investigate tomorrow. But Breathing Space? And can anyone really clever rescue it from the hard drive??? This is why you so really should take advantage of our Jamer Stories group thing to store back-ups.

I definitely still have the original cd of Safe here, and on my laptop as well I think - hope you can retrieve all your stuff off your laptop....
