Holy scary, Batman
My computer died on Monday morning.
Well, not DIED, as it turns out. But it apparently got a virus that took it down pretty hard.
At first, the guy thought my hard drive might have blown--and the thought of losing everything on my HD, including ALL OF MY MASTERS WORK--had me panicked. (No, I didn't back it up on an external hard drive....which will change, let me tell you.) If it HAD been the HD, he was "pretty sure" he could recover "at least some" of my documents. Gaaahhhh!!
However, it was just a virus--I shouldn't say "just," because it also wiped me out, but apparently it's relatively easy to recover the contents of a HD when it's a virus as opposed to a problem with the HD itself. (I don't really know--he was using lots of computer talk, and I was nodding and saying, "Yes, I'm familiar with the FRT 2.0 program," or "Yes, those 4.4875 gigs ARE fantastic, aren't they?"
I was going through WITHDRAWAL, let me tell you.
