A week ago my laptop had a crash dump and never restarted. The casualties = all my pictures and videos and files from the last 4 years. I'm bummed. I had my computer backed up a few times but it just got backed up back onto my computer so it didn't really do much good.
There is good news though. The laptop is fixed after having to pay for the entire process and new hard drive since I bought a 3 year warranty from CompUSA, which happened to go out of business shortly after my purchase. Oh and my laptop is now very boring due to the fact that it has nothing on it. The internet won't even work until we can get our landlord over to reinstall the software that allows the computer to access wireless.
Dumb technology .... OH there is hope though. Someday when we have money to spare we can pay $1100 dollars for super tech guys to get the information off the hard drive with special tools or something. Ben was considering doing something to get the FBI to investigate us and retrieve the files for their purposes and then when they realize we are innocent we could just get the files from them for free. Now all we have to do is figure out how to make the FBI interested in us without actually doing anything wrong.
