So, my laptop took a dump last week–specifically, my hard drive took a dump last week. My laptop was inoperable for days; I ended up opening it up (because I’m techy like that) and swapping out the hard drive from my brand-spanky-new external hard drive that was, thankfully, still empty. The old hard drive that has all of my stuff on it? FUBAR. All recovery attempts have failed.
It turns out that our desktop computer isn’t exactly the most up-to-date, either. I have been itching to bash it in with the nearest heavy object. Husband is in the process of convincing himself to build a new one, so, that might be cool. In the meanwhile, I’ve lost all of my files, including the redesign I’ve been working on for IB. I know. It’s the most sad. Luckily, my lovely friend Dawna had a copy of my front page layout for this blog and the food blog I was working on (I don’t even want to think about how much research I lost in my bookmarks–I just, I can’t even. So many links. So many articles) so I don’t have to start totally from scratch. Still, this will likely delay the redesign just a tad.
But, you probably didn’t click over to hear my tales of computer woes. You probably clicked over to see if you won the giveaway for Action, Figure by Frank Hinton. And one of you probably did! After plugging the total number of chances that people had to win into Random.org, I clicked and counted down until I reached the magical comment. The winner of this lovely, tiny, hardcore book is . . . . .
