Greetings from Issie!

Well, no joy on getting my stories back, and last night, my external drive failed as well. These events, coupled with the fact that my computer was behaving so erratically for the last little while that I was afraid to use it, has resulted in me biting the bullet and getting a new computer. I have got with a Mac this time, as suggested by my dad. Windows has been nothing but trouble for me since XP stopped being supported.

I was going to get a laptop, but the desktop was cheaper and better for what I was using it for, so I have a nice little Mac sitting on my desk now. I have named her Issie, in hopes that she will be stalwart and protect my files with the care one would expect from her.

I may still be able to get my files back, but for now, I'm looking on it as starting a fresh notebook--literally. I'm sure getting used to Mac life will be a bit of an adjustment, but so far, I am liking her for all the five minutes I've had her going. I've also started using Google Docs for saving my stories (thanks for the suggestion, joonscribble).

Anyhoodle, stories may be a bit sparse until I can get my self back on track, but I hope to get myself in order soon enough. Thanks for all the sympathy yesterday, it was very appreciated!
