And so life conspires against me again.
Life was its normal round of chaos for the last few days. when I wasn’t running around doing damage to my back, I was sitting down trying to repair my back. That part of me has taken a right hammering lately. And if the back goes on a semi-permanent sick note then I am royally fucked. And if I’m royally fucked then so is Herself. I suppose we would have to sign ourselves into some ghastly nursing home or something. A living hell.
Anyhows with al the above I have little or no time for computers or the Interweb or anything like that. My equipment seemed to take this personally as suddenly a couple of disks decided to go bely up. Fuck!
To repair the disks I had to empty each one onto my laptop before working on them. And seeing as they are Terrabyte disks my laptop started moaning that it didn’t have enough space. Fuck to the power of two!
I then spent a happy few hours backing up the laptop so that I could delete stuff to make space and then several more hours shifting files off the dodgy disks and then shifting them back again.
The problem with all that shifting is that I daren’t move the laptop or the disks in case a loose lead causes the transfers to fail. And if there is a failure I have to start the whole fucking thing all over again. Seeing as the laptop is on the table beside my chair, it means I have to twist myself to type, and my spine does not like that.
I will be honest. There have been moments in the last few days when I seriously considered fucking the whole computer / Interweb thingy out the window for good.
It’s pain in the
