Bummer. Sorry to see you miss out on Blogathon. Next year, maybe? Hope the computer is fixed pronto.

Hard Drive Failure!
Posted on Friday, July 28th, 2006 at 7:07 pm.

Damnit. I am not sure what happened, but it seems as though my hard drive just got corrupted. Yeah. Worst nightmare. My theory is that when my dad took my laptop, (uh, right, we had an argument) I was still writing files to my Hard Drive and he forced shutdown. Another theory is that he put it somewhere unstable and unventilated - like a table ahem ahem and it overheated (due to the uncanny ability of my laptop to overheat while being placed on any surface for more than 30 minutes, without changing places shrug what a crappy laptop) and it went to that disk check thing. Somewhere during that 1 minute boot, it fell on the floor (around 2 feet) and … the hard drive head was still reading from the hard drive… damnit…

One hell of a run-on, but either of those could have happened. I’m taking the second one.

I lost one hell of a lot of stuff - INCLUDING MY NEW WORDPRESS TEMPLATE! Damnit!

I probably won’t be able to do blogathon either.

Formal Resignation will be posted soon.
