I finally had to give in and format my computer.  I HATE doing this because I am guaranteed to lose stuff no matter how hard I try not to.

All my pictures… all 200 odd gigs of them are burned onto DVD.  Double checked and fine.  I got all my favorites etc. etc. also and then went through my Adobe Photoshop and saved all my stuff from there onto my Desktop before formatting.  Yes.  My Desktop.  They never made it onto DVD.  Gaaaah!  So, the next week or so I’m going to be trawling various sites downloading fonts and actions etc. etc.   It’s not the end of the world, it’s just a monumental pain.

However, on the plus side my computer is all clean and sparkling new again!  It’s fast and nippy like a smart car compared to the slow, trudging tank it had become.

I’ve only had the computer 8 months, so I’m going to try and be nicer to it this time around and keep it clean and zippy!
