PostSubject: THAT was close!   Tue Jan 01, 2008 8:23 pm

Yesterday afternoon, I went in and backed up all of my photos, and stories. Just figured that since it had been a couple of weeks, I should get to it. Well, this morning, when I went to start my laptop, it gave me the message: lsass.exe system error: object name not found. affraid I have no idea where the sasser worm came from, but it made itself to home, and my laptop had to be completely wiped. bawling I did lose a couple of things that I didn't remember to back up, but not much, really. But that sure was close! There wasn't any warning or indication that anything was wrong......What a pain. But at least not much is lost. I just hate having to start over again with adding favorites and programs and updates......

We had a close "fireworks" call tonight. The guys were setting some off tonight on the road and I heard a big pop. It sounded like something hit the trailer, I'm not sure. I ran outside and there was fire out on the edge of our yard fixing to go in the weeds. There were three little fires under our porch, one almost under our trailer.

We grabbed the water hose for the ones under the trailer and hubby was stomping on the one at the edge of our yard.

Neighbors came running over with shovels but we were able to get them out with the water hose. It was a close call!

What a bad beginning of the year, Savannah and Misti! No I hope things will be better for both of you.

Savannah..These worms are just awful. Everytime I have something important in my archives, I record them into a CD. I had so many bads experiences with these that I don't want to be exposed to them any more... Blue mad

Yikes, Misti!! That WAS close! I'm glad that nobody was hurt!

Vanesa.......yes, I thought the same thing, LOL! Nice New Year's present! *rolls eyes* I wish that I had backed up the two arrangements that I was working on - but I only lost two, and they're pretty fresh in my mind, so I think I can get them back. I'm hoping that it's a case of getting the worst over with right away, and that the rest of the year will be full of beautiful surprises, and answers to prayer. grinsmiley

Thanks, everyone! And I totally agree with what Vanesa, Savannah & Lily said. It is so important to back things up on your computer; advice that I haven't always done. I do have my Family Tree Maker files backed up and do that whenever I add anyone. I really need to do that with my other ones; I'm going to have to remember that.

One year I had files from our annual Christmas program that I work on every year. It is the songs, scriptures and poems typed out so that I can make copies. Well, that one year my computer crashed and I lost it all. I had to start all over. This is actually a good reminder to do that!

Oh no Savannah! I am so glad that you had most everything backed up. I know I would have felt sick if I had lost so much that was important to me.

Misti, I'm relieved to hear that the fire was put out quickly. I would have been pretty scared having that happen!

A reminder for me, too - I haven't backed up anything besides schoolwork (stories, pictures, etc), in a long time either - I think I will do that this afternoon. Savannah, that was a close call! I'm sorry you lost those two arrangements, but I'm glad you backed up some of your other stuff.

And Misti, how scary! I'm glad you all are safe. {{hugs}}

A flashdrive is a portable little memory storage device. It enables you have access to all your files wherever you go by plugging into any computers. We all use that at my work.

They sure are! And they're coming down in price, which makes it easier to get them.

You can get them at Walmart or Kmart, etc. . . . any stores like those. And it'll store files, pictures, music . . . whatever, up to how much memory it has. There are smaller ones, and larger ones. I have a few smaller ones, and a 1 gig - which is the largest that *I* have . . but there are larger ones than that.

I have several - Mike just got me a new one for Christmas. The first one I ever got was $30, but as Savannah said, they have come down in price, and are probably at least half that or less now. They're convenient and easy to use. I have one for work that I keep on my keychain so I can have it with me all the time.

Cool. $30.00 isn't that bad. I thought they would be like around $200, lol.

Wow! I was looking at Wal-Mart online, and they have a two gig flash drive for $16.48! I need to make a trip to Wal-Mart. Plus I need to get a reader for my camera's card.
