Today I HATE technology!
A and I have been working on a big english project for his class. We have been saving it on a zip drive so that he can work on it at school with his teachers as well. Last night I sent the zip drive with Ryan so that he could print it out and put the pages in a nice book format for the presentation. Unfortunately, the drive was completely empty! The computer doesn't even register that there is a new drive plugged into it! Ahhhhh!!! All of that work! GONE!
I can remember in high school typing in a huge paper and then something happened and I lost all of it. I wasn't as calm as I was last night. I actually threw myself on the ground, kicked, screamed, pounded my fists on the floor, and went balistic until I felt a little better! Yes, I threw a tantrum in my late teens! (sometimes it does help) I don't remember if I recovered my work or if I had to start over again, but it stunk!
Fortunately, this time, I had emailed all of the documents except for one to Ryan at work earlier in the week thinking that he could print them off then. He forgot, but I still had the email in my sent folder so I was able to recover everything except for the bibliography which I didn't work on so I have no idea how to reconstruct it!
