Boo hoo! My Laptop Died





Sadly, good things come to an end.  I'm sad to say my laptop had a peaceful death yesterday and I won't be blogging for a while.  

The great news is that Bubba (Bill, Jr.) is the Director of IT where he works and will be setting up my new laptop once I purchase it. Since  I'm not only a "foodie" but an "ipod junkie" and have close to 11, ooo songs on my ipod, not to mention all the videos, he recently told me I should have another backup and set it up for me.  Thankfully, all the data is saved.  It's wonderful having a great son who knows his way all around a computer!!!
 
We have a Mac desktop computer also but all of my blog posts, recipes and food photos are on the laptop.  I was going to post a recipe for delicious Cornbread Cake with Blackberry Sauce today but now it is on the back burner waiting for a new laptop.

So here's wishing you all a good day and happy blogging.  See ya' later!

  1. Oh Pam, so sorry. I still have my old laptop as my backup and it still works fine. I have to say I actually prefer it to my fancy updated laptop which has all sorts of things I do not like about it!!! Take care what you buy :-) Diane

  3. Pam, The cornbread cake is on the back burner? Pun, intended? :-)
    I'm sorry to hear about your lap top. Very difficult! What kind was it and how long did it live? Will you get the same kind again? I have a Dell but don't think I will buy that the next time around. Also, get an external hard drive and back up!
    xo, Cheryl

  4. Thankfully you have a Bubba; wish I had one of those. The good news is that you will get a new laptop with all the new stuff; now another fun thing to get used to; had to do last winter. Took me a while cause I don't have Bubba, but now I am happy. Good luck!

  6. You are going to have to post that cornbread recipe when you are "back up and running" because I love all things cornbread. Enjoy the process and the new laptop.

    Best,
    Bonnie

  8. Diane, I know what you mean and wish we could have a trial run with a lot of brands.

    Kristy, thanks! Yes, I am lucky with my computer support!!!


    Cheryl, yes it was! lol And it's difficult like you say. It was a Dell that lived for 3 years. I had several issues with it, esp. the touchy track pad, and I'm planning on never buying another one. I'm looking at HP, Toshiba and Lenovo. I have an external hard drive for backup plus an online backup.


    Rita, wish I could've sent Bubba your way. He is a huge help and the best, always corrects whatever issues I have. Of course, I get a little flack sometimes but I just feed him!

    TSRI, thank you!

    Gloria, thanks! I hope so also!

  10. That is what happens to computers.
    I have to say I got a nice pink Sony Vaio from my parents as a birthday presents..and my dauchter(2 years) pushed it palying fromm teh bed..when LCD screen broke.To repair it would cost almost liek buying another one.At teh end i decided not to do it,but keep using
    desktop instead and getting a good night sleep;)
    You can do daily backup..of your stuff ad your harddrive never drives and data can be retrieved enaytime;)

  16. Ohhh, it's tough not having a computer! Bubba's advice on brands and "user friendly" computers will come in handy. :)

  17. Boo that your laptop died, but at least you were backed up! I'll be waiting for the new computer and new blog posts!

  18. What a bummer! It happens to the best, sooner of later, though. You can always go on your Picassa web album, where every photo on your blog is stored and download them on to your new laptop. Good luck with it all!
