Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019
I forgot to report on a super-happy data thing here that was set in motion around the time of our move. I gave our miracle-working PA tech all my hardware then, except the notebook puder in active use, and he kindly fetched ALL the lurking data off of them. Two tower PCs, two old externals, and a corrupted backup of the laptop hard drive our former housemate took out of my laptop, which the next housemate, Tyler, stole.
(About 25 years of work product and family stuff, total!)
That tech was kind enough to discount his fee as our goodbye gift.
And then we moved and we're still unpacking. So the resulting external device lurked, unused, at my desk here until last week, when I wanted to update an aquatic fitness handout. I FOUND it despite not being sure which place to look, updated it, and saved it to the notebook, BOOM.
ALL my music files are also present, including all the gospel and spirituals out dear brother Mmario had agreed to curate upon my demise. We sure never thought about him going first!
