I’m laughing at myself to keep from crying. I had this great idea for a blog entry. I wanted to cover a trip Sherry had the nerve to take without me, but with my blessings. She went to Israel without me. I knew she took pictures, because I see them on the screen saver, but with the screen saver you have no idea from which file the computer retrieved them.
In my 36000+ pictures I could not find them. Long story, but I put the photos on this computer from a source that the files are not labeled. I have been slowly putting them into order, but I am far from finished.
No problem methinks, go to the old computer where I labeled my pictures. So while Sherry is out walking with Evelyn, I got on her computer (my old computer) and ACCIDENTALLY MOVED ALL ‘MY PICTURES’ TO A FILE CALLED ‘SAVED GAMES’.
Our net connection is via a cell network. At times it is shaky (literally) I clicked on My pictures at the exact time of a vibration and it moved the file over a file called ‘saved games’ and when I let off the mouse and it dropped the file into ‘Games Saved’.
They moved in seconds, before I could stop them. No big deal, I will move them back. In trying to move them back I duplicated the file. (I thought) So I deleted one (36000 pictures). Happens I didn’t have two files (a ghost file or something).
Now To the Trash Bin. It is such a large amount I decided to restore all in the trash bin. Computer looks at me and says, no problem, time required 18 hours! WHAT?
So it is now giving her back the pictures. But I am afraid they will go right back into ‘Saved Games’. And then I will have to move them back to MY PICTURES so the screen saver will work.
I love this stuff…….. (yeah right).
PS2: Now all is well with one small problem I will work out later. I still cannot find the pictures I was looking for, oh well….
This was the strip down model, no heater.
