Down for the count....

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 25, 2009, 3:50 AM


Not me, not yet at least, I actually think this is way worse (at the moment). I have one of my old SATA drives dying and it just happens to be my image drive. Yes I back up my files, normally, I fell behind for a few months and I am paying for that mistake right now. I can only copy a few files at a time so it is taking forever to get my images to a safe place.

I now have a Windows Home Server box sitting next to my PC and it will be setup to backup my files automatically, once all this madness is over.

Monday is my Colonoscopy, dreading getting ready for that test. The test itself is not a big deal, it is the nastiness you have to go through beforehand.

No word on anything else yet, just found a kidney stone with my last CT scan, but that is no big deal for me. Once I know more I will make an update, until then fingers and toes are crossed.

Good luck with the colonoscopy :hug: That seems like a really weird thing to say about a colonoscopy.

After effects are nothing, it's taking all that 'colon blow' stuff and spending every 20 minutes running to the bathroom. The test is nothing, been there before in 2001 and after is nothing either

exactly. Its not fun, but if it makes sure that you can live another 50 years and be my friend throughout those years and make it that one day we can actually meet in person and chill, then it is worth it.

If you have another (empty) drive the same size (preferably larger) I can clone that drive over for you. We don't use windows to do it, and we slow the drive down so we can get all the data off of it too. Let me know if you want help with that.

I have almost all of it pulled off now, but I will keep that in mind for any future needs.

I've been meaning to go through and start backing up my images to DVD, and at some point I need to get an additional hard drive for back up as well. Good luck getting everything moved over.

And good luck with the test. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. :hug:
