external harddrives

I decided to start editing some video before I have to start work in 45 minutes. I thought, ‘let’s see if we can’t make a dent in my Sonya vids.’

I have 1,332 videos in her folder. This is gonna take me forever to get through them.

{Not because of SPN, no.  Sad things happened but it takes a lot for me to get emotionally invested in that.  No, there is no back up.  Everything is gone.  Years of backups and saving my ass.  Writing and character information I built up over years.  A goddamn language I was working on.  Everything is g.o.n.e.  I have hyperventilated, I have cried, I am numb as fuck and I’m supposed to be hanging out with an old friend tomorrow and I don’t know how good of company I will be because I am mourning all those realizations that the things you dreamed really come up to nothing in the end when it’s just all gone and no one feels the hit but you.  It’s all so inconsequential.  Losing all my icons and gifs, losing all my writing I’d done from my teens to now, losing everything because I was too much of a dumbass to put it on my external harddrive, and what I have on my external harddrive is pretty pointless.  The only good thing I have is pictures on there.  Everything else is gone.

I can’t even give a fuck about supernatural because my life has mostly been spent on that string of computers through backups and it’s gone.

I want to say I’ll come back to rping, but I honestly don’t know.  The amount of work it would take to gather all the shit again I’d need to rp, to set up xkit, the amount of work to build up my computer again, right now, just seems like too much and not worth it considering the actual activity I get.   But I also know this is what keeps me sane sometimes and without it my depression likes to creep back in and with it suicidal ideation and I can’t have that either.  So I don’t know what’s going to happen with this blog or John.  I don’t know if I’ll find my way back because I’m too in the moment, too busy realizing how pointless all of this is and how little I actually matter to know what the fuck I’m going to do other than get the games that I spent money on because I spent money on them.

I just don’t know.}

I was looking through my external harddrive with stuff from my old laptop and I found the first edited music video I ever made. It had been transferred from device to device and here it is. I was eight when I made it on Windows Movie Maker.

My older sister watched it, she was the one who got me into editing, and she told me the timing was good.

And just like that it’s all she needed to say to make me continue editing for years. I barely do it anymore, what with the little time I have. On my other accounts my videos don’t get much attention or audience at all.

But jeez, her saying that to me helped me get through learning a skill all on my own. Don’t underestimate small comments you make on people’s work.

19, 30, 49, 55 for the unusual questions, thans:)

19. If anyone could be your slave for a day, who would it be and what would they have to do?

Domhnall Gleeson- I’d 3D scan him so we never have to try to work out how his face works ever again. After that, I dunno, the lawn needs mowing and the drive could do with a pressure wash. 

30. Your house is on fire, holy shit! You have just enough time to run in there and grab ONE inanimate object. Don’t worry, your loved ones and pets have already made it out safely. So what’s the one thing you’re going to save from that blazing inferno?

My ‘passport’ external harddrive because without it I don’t have a business any more. I’d say my iMac but its a 27″ so I can’t lift it and if it was destroyed in the fire I could claim on the insurance for a new one :p

49. If you could breed two animals together to defy the laws of nature, what new animal would you create?

Potoo bird and pallas cat to make a gryphon.  

55. Can you do any accents other than your own?

I can do a passable valley girl

i have all my imporbant files backed up on an external hard drive so i am very much considering factory reseting my old pc and seeing if then it will be able to run games again since i have a mac now and I want to play Windows games and boot camp and wine and parallel desktops and stuff seem pretty complicated and ultimately unreliable 

but i am also very much afraid of something important being deleted in the factory reset and it won’t be able to be retrieved on the external harddrive for whatever reason 

Okay, I know I owe stuff but here is the deal. With my 4tb external harddrive crashing, I lost all of my gifs. Now @snikklefritsrps & @orthographewrites have helped me get some of them back by sending me gif files. And I did manage to recover some also. But that is why I haven’t been replying to thing. 

Its not cause I wanna drop threads, or anything like that. Its because I don’t have the gifs so all of my time and energy has been put into downloading gif files. Now I do have my replies drafted and I am working on them. So please just bare with me.

YES YES YES AAAAAAAAAAA THE TECH GUY DID IT!!!! He managed to recover all my stuff from my old laptop ;0; hes’ gonna put everything on a new external harddrive for me to pick up later today

I have windows 10 but my mcafee anti virus expired 2 weeks ago. Is my laptop safe? Thank you

There’s no need to really panic here. I assume you use your computer for personal use? The chance that somebody deliberately wants to attack your computer is relatively small. But it’s better to be safe than sorry in the end.
Having an anti-virus (even a free one) is better than having not one, cause these programs usually keep an eye out on your internet traffic and background processes, and might detect any breach in your system.

So if you can, try to update your anti-virus. If you can’t, be sure to enable your Windows Defender and Firewall (type in your windows search bar ‘firewall’ and ‘defender’ and it should pop up and make sure they are on)

And if you have an external harddrive or USB, place your very important files on them. Or upload them to a cloud platform like dropbox if they don’t contain sensitive or personal data.
