Not Me Monday..... (love/hate relationship with my MAC)





Plain and simple.....

I did not try to organize my photos on my computer this weekend (MAC), and some how find that they have been lost and deleted.  I did not cry and get really upset for all the many, many, many photos I had not yet backed-up.  I did not get cranky at my husband, because he did not tell me several times to do such things like backup my photos on to the hard drive.  I did not waste most of my Saturday evening dealing with recovering the little amount of photos I could.  I was not heartbroken to see that ALL the pictures I had not yet saved of Morgan over the last 10 months GONE.  However, I was not a little relieved that I at least still had Morgan's birth photos on the old camera's card, because those don't really mean that much to me at all (not). 

I am not really disappointed in myself, and I do not have a love/hate relationship with this stupid MAC, laptop that I do all my work on.  UGH.... this was so NOT ME!!! 

***************************************

PS:  I need help from anyone that uses MacBook OX S or whatever its called.  How it came about me losing ALL my *^%(&(#(&  photos was that I tried to make my first iDVD slide show of all the photos I took of my friends birth last Monday.  My computer kept telling me I did have enough space on my hard drive to save the DVD on my computer or burn it on a CD.  So in attempt to "clear" up some space I started organizing the thousands of pictures I had on my computer, deleting what I didn't need any longer and deleting photos I had in iphoto and or in my 'picture' file that were the same.  Some how, I ended accidentally deleting an iphoto tab or something and it lost ALL my photos.  I am devastated by this, and want to throw my computer in the pond behind my house here.  

I made a really cool slideshow in iDVD and would like to save it so I can upload it on youtube.  Can anyone tell me how to do this, PLEASE???????

I am SOOOO sorry, Misty! I wish that I could help you. I would be so upset, too, as you had such wonderful pictures. I hope that someone can help you out.

I know nothing about Mac's. My brother and nephews are experts in Mac's, but since he is a missionary on a remote island in the Pacific and has to pay big bucks to connect ...he won't be of much help to you!

I'm so sorry!

Oh Mist that so stinks! Do you not keep your photos on the camera disc that they are taken on? I dont know why I asked that.

Anyway, thats what I do because I dont trust any computer. I have used HP laptops for years and never had that problem, but I know it can happen. I keep these camera disc libraries and keep each disc labeled.

I do hope that you get them back. I know there is allot of recovery software out there that might be able to help you.

Good luck.

Our Love and Prayers as Always,

Tim and Carey

I'm surprise you didn't go into cardiac arrest. I would, I think. Take the whole computer to the MAC store and beg a nerd to do SOMETHING. Maybe they could retreive it. After all, your computer didn't crash so there's hope, I think.

TIM...what is up with that question? Did you really just ask her if she has them on her camera disc? I sure hope you read this...LOL!! I had to give you a hard time!

Misti, I seriously wanted to cry for you! Two Christmas' ago ('07...Kylie's FIRST Christmas!!), I accidently deleted over 200 pictures from every Christmas celebration we had. I cried and cried AND CRIED! So I feel your pain, sister! I wish there was something I could do...gosh, that stinks!

Also, I wanted to thank you for your sweet comment on my blog...it meant SO MUCH! Thank you for opening up and sharing some things you have experienced!...you seem like such an awesome woman! I will be praying for your family as well, hun!

I hope you don't mind...I am going to add you to my list of blogs I read. Oh, one more thing...I'm gonna shoot you an email, so be looking for it! :)

I'm so sorry about your pictures! When I read it, I thought about how I probably shouldn't make fun of my husband anymore for backing up everything on our computer 3 different ways! At least some are on blogger right?!?
