YOU MUST SEE THE COMPETITION AT THE END
My Computer Crashed- I have No Idea why! It has never even Hiccuped prior to this. I had made so many customizable changes to it and now I have to try to reproduce them all. Arrrrrggggggh--- Multiple downloads and then configuring them all- At least I did burn a Disc of many of my favorite Applications so a lot of them are on that! Nice time off work eh?
And NO, Smarty butt- I didn't have a recent back-up, and YES it is my fault and I know I should! I do have a backup of all my applications- but as far as all my new pics and stuff- GONE!!!
I know--some of you are clapping because the spider is gone! And I had just pulled out a disc to burn those images too! Maybe they are still on the puter since I don't think I did a complete hard format restore of the drive! (but I'm pretty sure I did)-since I had to reconfigure Settings, fonts, firewall, desktop,favorites, IE7, ET.all, I probably did--(Yep- I was hungry. So I et it al!) I'll have to check and see.
But after installing the new Duct work (THE AC WENT OUT TOO!) at 102 degrees and a heat index of 114: I was beat. Hammer and AD and Matt- STOP laughing RIGHT NOW if you are reading this!!! The ladies in my life, I know are at least only snickering- cept Babs and she's LHAO!!!!! But one great thing came out of it!!! I didn't DIE! And with that kind of strain and at those temps- if my Thumping Gizzard handled that: well I think I'm good to go!!!
Any suggestions (I know Poopsy- don't buy a DELL-LOL) as to where my restore points or possible backups would be on the system and how to roll them back, if they did survive? Registry- file names...do a search for *.bak ??? The basic System restore option won't let me do it- but I thought maybe there is a way to go through the Registry...... Nah- belay that last comment- I can see the FLAMES now! LOL
It happened after I installed my new Printer but I don't think that did it. I changed the refresh rate on my Monitor settings and It would not let me get out of a black screen- said the refresh rate of 120 was not supported (I went 1024 x 768...I want this setting but everything is too small for these old eyes!) and that's where I stayed, until I reformatted. I tried everything-and once I went into BIOS--SYS.INI, BOOT Sector, etc! well....need I say more. This post will have to tide you over for a little bit. DO NOT MISS THE JEWELRY CONTEST THAT FOLLOWS- IT'S AWESOME!!!!! I'm not sure- but it looks an awful lot like....hmmm- Scarlet--No.....MonkeyGirl----No........I got it! That pic that was recently moved OFF a site now that she has "A MAN" in her life- LOL-- Yeppers- Dead ringer for LOVING ANNIE!!!!
DO NOT TELL ANNIE WHERE I LIVE-- I FEAR FOR MY LIFE: JUST KIDDING, MY DEAR, MY LOVE, MY SNOOKUMS, MY ORCA...I MEAN ORCHESTRA...I MEAN I'D BETTER STFU IS WHAT I MEAN--.
AN OLDIE BUT A GOODIE
