I Hate Microsoft
Well, the shed is definitely looking terracotta but needs more work, so I won't post a pic till it's beautiful. Meanwhile, I have just about recovered from that computer disaster on Tuesday. I had worked away on Chapter 13 - note the number - a half-day's writing, the first fully written layer down and saved, when I tried to transfer it to a disc. It disappeared. All my work. Gone. It wasn't on the disc nor was it in the file. I searched for it everywhere. There was no warning, no -"are you sure you want to do this?" - nothing. Just poof. Work gone. And I was left with the original file of rough notes. I HATE MICROSOFT. I am definitely getting an Apple for my laptop. I don't care if it entails difficulties transferring files from one to the other. Eventually I will have an Apple desktop as well. I swear, I actually kicked the hard drive I was so pissed.
