Power Outage

I finally got my power back after 4 days of living like I was camping in my house!! A storm knocked out tons of people's power in our area. I have lost all my files (awaiting retrieval from hard drive limbo) after my old computer refused to turn back on when the power returned. I ended up with a new computer, which was an unexpected expense, so it didn't come with the usual "woohoo" that normally accompanies a new computer.

Why is it that this stuff only seems to happen after not doing a backup for a while? It never ever happens when I've just backed everything up all nice and safe. Crap!!

I'm trying to recall the add-ons I had for Firefox. Any recommendations?

Don't know where I've read it, but it's just so damn true: 'Three things are certain: Death, taxes and lost data. Guess which has occured.'

not sure if u tried CoolPreviews for Firefox before. it's a nice addon that allows u to preview links in a smaller window. a real lifesaver when u have to got through many messages on DA.

I have a dictionary.com add-on, as well as one I loooove called Clippings. It's a life saver when uploading stock. Instead of copy-pasting the same thing on every one, you just right click, go to your Clippings menu and there it is

FantasyStock's avatar
Oh yeah!! I forgot Clippings!! How did I forget that?!? You're awesome! Thank you!! And I didn't know about the dictionary... And OMG! There's a Thesaurus.com addon too!

:glomp: THANKS!

:wow: No fun! But at least you have power now. There must have been a power surge that caused your computer to go. It just couldn't take anymore :no: ~ I have Time Machine for the Mac as a backup then my husband backs-up my backup on his computer. He has a 1 1/2 T drive, so there is plenty of room on it.

The one "electro" stock looks like an eyeball :giggle:

I don't think it was a surge. Nothing else attached to the surge protector strip was damaged. Everything else still works, just not the tower.

Go figure! :shrug: The most expensive thing on the desk was the one thing to go bonkers. Well, the comp was old. We had been having it repaired, and to keep doing so would mean spending as much as a cheap PC tower, which is what we ended up getting.

I'm so sorry to hear that! :( It totally sucks to be without power and even worse to lose files and a computer! I sure hope that your files can be recovered from the hard drive!

I think I can recover them ....eventually. It will take some time though.

:hug: Thank you!!

That's why you should always make backup copies, my dear... Murphy's Law. It's a law of physics. I truly believe that.

Oops, hit send to soon!

Adding:

It gave us a glimpse of what life was like prior to electricity. It was kind of good in a way as it forced me to step away from my high-end techie gadgets. I read the classics by lamplight while listening to some Glen Miller. It was very therapeutically relaxing and when my power returned I felt a bit more mentally energized.

The victrola sounds great! That would have been kind of a blast if not for the intense heat I bet. I don't have any old lamps like that, and reading by candlelight isn't as romantic as they make it look in the movies.

Oh boy... but as I told `Shoofly-Stock I'm in North Houston and when Hurricane Ike came thru a couple of years back we were without power for 16 days! Thank G-d I collect antique oil lamps and have an antique Victrola and 78's. As long as I kept cranking my Victrola at least we had entertainment!
