My New Brain

So, after my computer crash, I got a new hard drive. Fresh and clean as a newborn baby--and empty of a great deal of information. I found an excel document where I had backed up my address list last February. It took a great deal of hard work on my part to get it into an importable format, but I did it (just don't ask me how because I won't remember). I imported it back into my e-mail program but lost all my group configurations. Today, I am spamming everyone in my address book to see if they want to be re-added to my mailing list. This is also allowing me to get rid of defunct addresses--hey, I'm looking for positives!

However, because this list was only up until last February, if you and I started communicated via e-mail since that time, you no longer exist in my new brain (much like the last 2 years of family pictures I also lost). If you would be so kind, would you e-mail me at You don't have to pat me on the head or tell me dirty jokes to make me smile (name that song!) just an e-mail so I can add you to my address book which will now be backed up regularly along with the five family pictures I have off of my digital camera that I hadn't downloaded yet.

If you were on or would like to be on my mailing list, let me know in the e-mail and I'll add you to that group as well.

Thanks much,

Name that tune:
You may be right by Billy Joel! Thought I'd chip that in. Glad you're up and running again!

Rats, Wendy beat me to it.

But I knew the answer.

Is there a prize involved?

I knew the song too. Love Billy Joel.

And sorry about the crash. Been there, done that.

Okay, I'm going to back up everything on my computer now. Just reading your last post sent me into panick mode! So sorry!

Oh, no. What a nightmare.

I also must back everything up. Here I was sitting smug with my MacBook. Aaaggh.

Glad you're getting back on track. Sooo glad you backed up your writing. Sorry about the pictures, etc. Unlike writing, we can't just "make those up," no matter how hard we try.

I didn't know the tune . . . And I really like Billy Joel. How lame am I? I used to believe myself a music guru. Then I started reading Novembrance's blog. That put an end to my delusions.
Crashes suck. Do you need anything? (i mean, anything I can do?)
