Sharing moments in time…

When things bite you in the butt….


Well, I’m having a minor (at least I hope so) hard disk problem today and I can’t access any of my recent pictures.  This goes for the majority of my Africa photos and my recent images from Jackson Hole.  As you might expect, I’m pretty bummed but I am waiting for troubleshooting help from the hard drive manufacturer….

On the other hand, its an opportunity to share one of my Africa photos that I stored in a different area which seems to reflect the title of this post…..

speaks for itself?

    • Oops…nurse in me read disc to be back trouble…hard drive is even worse ! Hope your computer is back to normal…what a pain in the backside ! Sorry for the confusion. Old nurses never die… everything is medically related in their minds ☺.
      Peace

      • Thanks Siggi – yep – our viewpoints are all affected by our past lives. Now if only the disk is not infected by another medical malady like the proverbial virus!

  2. My worst nightmare, and I’m only beginning! Hope things get worked out soon.

    • Thanks Angeline – the irony is that this disk is almost brand new – intended to back up another failed disk…

  3. I hope your glitch is only a minor glitch!

  4. Scott – any updates on the hard disk? Awesome photo – you need to add a bubble caption to it.

    • Hi Marina – doesn’t look good. Probably a disk failure – even though the disk was only a month old! I have information recovery software but it won’t work when the disk doesn’t even show up on the computer. I’ll probably have to take it to a data recovery service which means $$$ but i don’t want to lose all those pics – our National Geographic entry may be among them:-)

      • Scott – I am SO sorry to hear this about your hard disk. It’s such the issue with digital photography isn’t it? I know it is $$$ though you’re right – you’re going to appreciate them so much when you get the photos back. You’ll wow us either way. Keep us posted. You’ve got a really positive attitude and remember, memories are important too 🙂

  5. I hope your hard drive actually does again what he should do …
    nice title anyway – useful weekly for various topics …

    • Hi Frizz, The Jury is still out on the hard drive. Hopefully the “Butt bite” will turn out okay – if not, I’ll have to just recreate some of the photos in the future 🙂
