Well, I got my computer back, and I’ve only had to re-install one program. That’s some really good news! Unfortunately, while the computer was out, I developed a painful medical problem that has forced me to cease all work, both personal and client.
I can only sleep an hour or two at a time before being woken up by either pain or a hellish nightmare. The rest of the time is spent trying to find ways of coping with the pain, eating, and getting rid of dumb commercial jingles that keep popping up in my head. On top of that, I have developed a cold, which makes me feel even more miserable. Needless to say, the urge to do any type of work has flown out the window.
I did manage to get online to write this quick note, though. That’s got to count for something, right?
Well, I finally did it. I crashed my computer (missing/corrupt system file). That means no site updates, no artwork, etcetera. It’s too bad, too, because I was working on figuring something out for the Disney Experience’s tenth anniversary. Oh well. I couldn’t come up with anything anyway, so this will give me some time to brainstorm.
I keep all of my files on my computer’s secondary hard drive as well as an external hard drive (back-up). The main hard drive is what runs the computer, so if it has to be wiped, it shouldn’t affect my files at all. I just have way too many important files that I simply cannot lose.
The computer should be fixed within the week, so it shouldn’t interrupt anything. If I do have to make any site updates, I guess I’ll just have to do it the old-fashioned way. I just hope it doesn’t cost me an arm and a leg to get back to “normal.”
Okay. If I played my cards right, this should be the next-to-last file upload for the Escape from the Haunted Mansion board game. Next month will be the final release, so please, please, please stop emailing me about missing files. Yes, there are missing files . . . because they haven’t been uploaded yet. That’s why there’s a notice (now in red) right above the download links.
