It’s happened again. My computer has crashed. I am crushed and crippled. This time something has destroyed or taken out what they are calling my “profile” which means my computer is a scrambled mess, like a library with no librarian. The files are all jumbled out of their neat and tidy folders. And they are telling me about 7000 files are missing from what they pulled off the computer.
One of the worst things is that my contacts seem to be gone. That means all the names and information about people I need to contact are gone, or lost to my view. That includes about 2000 family history class members and about 200 DfG contacts that I’ve added just in the last year or so. I have no way of sending things out to my friends. I also have no idea who was on which list. It makes me feel sick to my stomach to think about it. I am praying we can find a technician who can help fix the problems.
So, I’ve had a restless week, with no access to my computer and my files. I’m at my desk now, on a laptop with my 2 computer monitor screens blank behind it. They stare at me, dark and empty. I have an external drive here, with the things they were able to pull off my computer in their jumbled mess. My heart feels about the same.
