Need to blow off steam!!!!! So I used to have this online gallery of pictures. THOUSANDS of pictures!!!! The last 4-5 years if not more. Mostly personal pictures. Hanging out and doing silly things with my best friends, meeting new people, family vacations, first road trip with my boyfriend. All of these pictures were on my computer until it crashed about 2 years ago. After a few hours of crying I remembered that the most important ones were still on the webpage. Over the last two years I've copied a few onto my harddrive to use for birthday and christmas cards for my bf (I never buy xmas, bday, vday cards for him. i make 'em in photoshop). About a month ago I find out that the server all my webpages were on had crashed. I wasn't too worried as my friend told me he was sending it away to get all the stuff on it recovered and put on a new one. Tonight I find out that the company sent him an email basically saying 'UPS has lost your stuff and they wanna know how much it's worth plus an explanation to justify replacing it'. This makes me so terribly angry at the digital world. This one single event may prevent me from ever buying a digital camera. Or at least using it for personal pictures. I am so beyond angry!!! The more I go through the gallery in my head the more pictures I remember I learned my lesson when my computer crashed to make copies on discs. However, those discs are sitting right beside my computer so if, god forbid, the house ever burnt down they'd be gone also. My negatives on the other hand are in a fire safe box because I would seriously run INTO my burning house to get them. It is literally tearing me apart to think of the pictures on that server. Perhaps the gods will help UPS find it and send it home safely!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
