Hooray, I can work at my own computer now! The drive finally arrived from Dell, and it is installed. The OS and most of the programs I need are set up, and working, more or less. The repair tech from Dell took my old drive, so no data recovery. 😦 Its all gone away. I’m not really happy, but I have a job, and am able to be back in my own office again, so I can’t complain too much.
Now onto recreating some of my bookmarks and such. I use Firefox as a browser, and there is a lovely extension that will back up your browsers, bookmarks, extensions and themes. I had it installed before, but the backups all were in the disk that fried. Once I get everything re-created, I’ll back it up and then put the backup file on the network drive. It’s pretty funny/sad to have to run around to folks and have them email me links to sites we use for work. I’m a little leary of using some of the online bookmarking sites for my work bookmarks. If you have some experience with the social bookmarking sites, I’d love to hear it.
