What a week!

I took my computer to the Geek Squad to see if they could recover a deleted file for me. When I got there, my computer wouldn't power up. I had just unplugged it an hour before I got there, so I couldn't believe it. The techie guy told me that it was probably the motherboard, and I would spend less to buy a whole new computer. This all sounded real crazy to me, so I went home to think about it. I was looking through my paperwork and discovered that I had purchased the 3 year service plan. Since the computer was purchased in '04, I rushed up to the nearest Best Buy and put her in the hospital. Today they called, and my computer had a bad power supply. They replaced it for free under the warranty, so I was relieved. Sometimes it helps to get a second opinion! So now I STILL haven't recovered the deleted file and I don't have much hope that I will. I bought some "Search and Recover" software, and it is running as I am writing this - it takes hours! Then I will have to sift through the recovered files and see if I can find the missing one! Maybe I will get lucky.

Ugggghhh....sometimes life is too hard, eh? You've been struggling with computer issues, I've been struggling with car issues, and it seems everyone I know is in the midst of some sort of struggle or another. Good thing we have each other, eh? I personally don't know what I'd do or how I'd survive without my friends! Hang in there Tuff...you're not alone!

My power supply died too a few months ago, but luckily my son told me what the problem was before I took it into the geek squad. $30 for a power supply, plus labor.

Hope you find the deleted lost files.
