7 months ago: "You're not going to put all your pictures on your new laptop, ARE you." (this was not a question).
"Use this Hammer Storage drive!"
At first I didn't notice it because I plugged him in someplace else and nothing happened. I looked at the outlet Hammer had been in and the little prong was still in it. But we have some handy types about, the electricity was shut off, the prong retirieved from the outlet and the plug repaired.
But then, Hammer murders my pictures and commits suicide when he is plugged back in! Or maybe when he disengaged himself from the prong. No one knows for sure.
Hammer's corpse was taken in for an autopsy. And a second and third opinion. Hammer is deader than dead; can't be fixed. And off warranty.
I think most of what was in Hammer is still on the carcass of my old PC, which went over to the dark side a long time ago. I'm reluctant (afraid) to turn it on.
How do you store your photos? Flickr? Let me know. I need advice. It is not possible to be in this business, blog or not, without pictures.
The other day I was on Flickr and my laptop was attacked. It took the Norton thing about a half hour to get rid of it.
Thanks for letting me rant and thanks for reading,
