technical issues

Yesterday was a very bad day. Okay, in the grand scheme of things, it wasn't all that bad. No one I know got sick, hurt themselves or died (that I was made aware of). But it was a technically bad day, as my work computer pooched itself. Or as our IT guy said as he worked on it, "Well, this is right royally f***ked. Better unplug it from the network before it takes down everything". Great. That's what I need to hear at 7:30am on a day when I need to get stuff done. I'm on a temporary laptop at the moment, and I spent much of yesterday resetting everything I could to get my comfort level up to speed. It's not there yet, and worst of all, I lost (hopefully only temporarily) my favourites list of sites I visit. All my licensor sites (many of which you can't find through a Google search, as they are not really publicly accessible), and worse, my blog reading list! I know, I know, I shouldn't read at work, but I do. I also know I should keep it saved somewhere other than my desktop, but hindsight is 20/20. Suffice it to say, If I'm not commenting on your posts, I've probably lost your address - feel free to remind me of it when you visit, and I'll add it to my list!

Back to finding my licensor sites...

Whew, first realizing you can't go to the KF and then a computer crash. What will be #3?

Oh man, that really sucks. Hope you can get comfortable soon.

Oh, I totally understand! We started having computer issues, and in an attempt to resolve it, my husband deleted the internet tool bar we use. Gone are all my favourite! Most of the knitting blogs I've found again, but I had a lot of patterns saved, machine knitting sites, yarn stores (which I never use anyway), sewing sites, and parenting blogs. Many of them are fairly new to me, so I don't know enough about them to Google them (and some are rather obscure).
I am very thankful for the bloggers that keep their links updated!!
