Times flies when you are having fun.
Time also flies when your hard drive starts making a clicking sound. Apparently, that is what is called "the click of death" by the service dept at the Apple store.
As some on you know, my hard drive melted a few days after my last post. And I didn't have everything backed up like I should. I was using BackBlaze to do an online backup. The problem was that it never got through the initial backup. Only about half. *sigh*
So I got the hard drive replaced, it was still under warranty for another few months. And my portable hard drive from Backblaze arrived yesterday with my intact files. So I am sorting out what got lost. I don't think I lost any original artwork scans.
Mostly what I lost was my iphoto library. The original photos of patients and gift items. Which isn't too big a deal, since most of those were resized for the web and live here on blogger, flickr, or facebook. Product photos are live on Etsy, Artfire, Bonanzle. I just have to go around and copy and paste them into a new folder.
So let this be a lesson to you if you are lazy like I was. Always back up files to a portable hard drive. or online storage, or both. My Macbook has a Time Machine function that copies and saves everything (settings, software, files) to an external hard drive. You can betcha I'll be using it quite frequently from now on.
But I am back and I have some photos and videos to share with you. Appointment is here, be back later.
