The MacBook Crash of 2008 has struck the Chupps

The title says it all . . . My school laptop, which has been at my side since I got it last year, crashed on Tuesday. My initial reaction was not what you might expect. I call it the MacBook Crash of 2008 because this has happened to several people across campus. It has gotten to the point where you are extremely lucky if it hasn't happened to you. I knew it would eventually happen so I backed up all my files at the end of July. So I was fine knowing that I backed up a little over a month ago and wouldn't have lost that much stuff.

I am sure you all can see where this is going . . .

The next day at school, I insert my backup disks in my temporary computer and . . . BLANK, BLANK, BLANK!!!!! I was (let's be honest, still am) devistated! You can't imagine all the stuff I lost. I told our campus techy today, "It's a good thing I remember what my boys looked like when they were babies because I'll never get those pictures back." I was being just a tad dramatic because fortunately, I backed up in September of 2007 so my entire life wasn't lost but almost a year is gone.

Also, for those of you that don't know, there is a program called Senuti that allows you to transfer the music from your iPod back to iTunes. Now, if only I can figure out how to get my pictures from my iPod back to iPhoto I will feel a lot better.
