So my computer gets a virus, I format, have my files backed up, all good....

EXCEPT MY NEW DOCK ICON PACK

Seriously it was the one thing I didn't backup. I thought I already had a copy of it in my backups but nope, just looking for it then and I can't find it anywhere. I had done about 6 icons, all were looking great, and very detailed.

So yeah, not too happy, but shit happens I guess...

Ben.

EDIT: I found two of the icons hidden away, so I guess that's pretty good :)

Well are designs are a little different but if you look at my work I have a DS template I hand did in Photoshop which took forever to get to look right with lighting and such. Well the first time I did it I actually finish in 1 sitting without saving once and right when I finish and click file save as and that window popped up to choose the name.... Photoshop crashed. I flipped out haha.

Aw man that sucks! Well, at least you took the time to redo it. Usually when that happens to me I give for the rest of the day :P

Yeah I actually didn't completely redo it again that day. I started the outline and finished it later.

Cant want for your icon pack bro. You make the best.

Same thing happened to my pack of icons, lost 9 due to a HDDcrash, it really sucks when one has put lots of hours into making them!

I lost the mood of making more, hope you don't lose yours cause I bet they will become su-hu-weeet! :D

Yeah man that sucks :( Although it doesn't seem like it, a single icon can take hours of work, as you know. It's hard to keep the mood for designing. I often just cannot be bothered designing, sometimes I do, and sometimes I want do design something badly but I can't produce anything good.

By the way I love your avatar! Haha hilarious..

Oh yeah, when you get those really good ideas and you just want to make that super awesome thing that you got printet on the back of your eyes and just...just can't do a single thing right!

Those times one can get really frustrated with oneself... :P
