Crash and Burn

It's official. My computer has crashed. I was playing games online when all of a sudden I hear a sound go "Bloop", and then the screen went black. Then the whole thing shut down and decided to not work.

I'm so glad I saved MOST of my folders on an external backup drive, but I had some important stuff that I wanted to save but forgot to. 

I took it to the workshop to get it fixed and the technician said "he'll see what he can do". I think this is code for "This is a crappy situation." He said I should get a new one. Well, I should have a long time ago, but I was lazy, and now I'm bankrupt and in debt (damn credit cards).

I want it to work! It MUST work. This lady can't stand not having her old, faithful broken-down piece of metal. *sniff*

That's terrifying when a computer crashes like that -- visions of all the stuff you meant to back up dancing in your head. I hope they can fix it.

It's actually painful when my lappy gets sick. ;/

So, I sympathise, completely.

That is why I have two to three PCs at my disposal not including the laptops. Then there are all the central storage units. And every PC has multiple drives so if one files I don't lose all the data.
