Did you hear that?
Yep, that was the sound of my computer crashing... HARD. :(

I'm pre-posting this on the computer at work so you all will know what's going on since I can't upload pics right now. Grrrr, arrrrrrrgh!

I spent the better part of the day on the phone with the tech people at Dell and the conclusion was there must have been some sort of power surge that fried the hard drive, it's a rare occurrence I'm told... lucky me... (huge eyeroll inserted here). So all I can do now is wait for the replacement to be delivered, which supposedly should be today or tomorrow.

And even though not being able to post here sucks, the absolute worst part is that I lost all my digi stamps... including the seven new exclusive TGF sprouts that I hadn't even gotten a chance to print out yet! I'm not ashamed to admit that I cried a little over that one. sigh, sniff sniff... :(
It's times like these that reinforce why I am a rubber girl at heart.

So anywho, if you don't see me around much the next few days, you know why and please keep posting for a chance to win this week's candy on the post below. Hopefully I'll be up and running again before I know it... fingers crossed!

Oh and I quick update on the December All That Scraps release... it looks like they will be available for purchase Nov. 30th rather than Dec. 7th. PLUS there is a juicy day-after Thanksgiving sale. Here's the deets I borrowed from their newsletter:

After Thanksgiving Sale- Starting Friday November 27th at 12:00am est till Friday November 27th at 11:59pm est every item thoughtout the store will be 25% off. The discounts will already be taken on all products, no need to enter any codes.

Also we will have a one day quick release of the newest stamps, they will be included in the sale. They will listed on Friday for the sale and then taken off the site until the official release date of November 30th.

Pretty cool huh? Ok, talk to ya later! :)

I have that sale on my calendar, can't wait!
So sorry about your computer hon, hope you get it up soon.
As a former IT dork, I would suggest that you buy an external hard drive and back up software (Acronis is my preference) and start backing up your PC once a week ;0) You can email me if you have any questions!

I'm so sorry to hear about your computer trouble. Hope you're up and running again soon. It's soooo frustrating when things like that happen.

Angie said...

Ouch! I've had something similar happen and I DID cry! lol! BUT, I contacted Marie and she replaced my digis! It was before the "new" store setup, so they weren't kept in my account or anything. Maybe your digis are still in your TGF account? if not, ask Marie about it! she's such a sweetie, she'll probably be able to help you out.

Ohhh Amy SO, SO sorry about your putter issues. While technology is awesome you're literally crippled the minute it fails you. NOT FAIR!!! I am with you... I too am a rubber girl at heart too. Hang in there. Hopefully everything will work out. {{{HUGS}}} Tracy

oh no :(

I hope it's fixed soon.
I always backup my digistamps, just incase. I would suggest you do the same? Just buy a cheap memory stick and put them onto that or write them onto a writeable cd.

OUCHH i am so happy I backup frequently!!! It would break my heart as I am such a digigirly!
I cry with you a bit!!
