NORMALLY… I do.
But today, I didn’t. And two completed papers (short ones) and the best draft so far of my 12+ page-er are on a laptop that won’t boot up. Suddenly. This afternoon. I suspect a software “update” did it.
Yes, I have anti-viral software (and use it).
Yes, I have a system-tweaker de-bugger for Windows (and use it).
Yes, I even have print-outs of the current versions of the papers….
In the grand scheme of things, this is small potatoes. My kids are healthy. My marriage is solid. I have a great support network.
The all-nighter required to re-type all these things on the computer “dinosaur” in the house is… priceless.
