My drawing flow has been temporarily disrupted by more computer problems sent from the gods to test my sanity .... again. Windows Vista has decreed that it no longer wishes to function on my PC and has decided to go AWOL. Unfortunately, I have not kept my data back-up routine up to date and so have had to send the offending article off for a data recovery operation which may, or may not be successful. I'm trying to stay positive even though I'm very, very pee'd off about it, not so much about the possible data and program loss but about the fact that it happened in the first place.
I'm always very careful on my computer and have good anti-virus protection and yet, I'm told, this sort of thing can happen out of the blue. Windows files, apparently, can just get corrupted and permanently jam up the whole system....just like that. In the blink of an eye all the precious stuff you have painstakingly installed and uploaded over some considerable time, and not sufficiently backed up, can be gone. Be warned folks, Be warned!
Anyway, I'm using an old laptop at the moment so I can continue using email and the Internet....and the printer/scanner too. I also have many of my photos and drawings on other devices so it's not so bad. Worse things can happen, can't they? I still have my pencils and paper.... now they can't disappear into the great unknown, can they? I Will Survive!
