March 19, 2011: The Day the Laptop etc. Went Away

Due to unforseen circumstances (in this case, a burglary at our house), my posts will be restricted until I can get a replacement for my stolen laptop. That might be easier than recovering all the data I had on it since I was stupid enough not to have backed up everything onto my external hard drive.

  1. I'm surprised they never stole the hard drive too. All my really critical stuff I back up online these days as well as on external hard drives. You should look into something like Dropbox.

  2. Oh that is so sad. I'm so so sorry. It's one of my pet horrors, losing all my work. I hope you can retrieve at least some of it.

  4. Just a quick note to thank all of you; fortunately, I can get some of my poems back from my blog--the loss of the laptop really hurts though, because it was a gift from my good and very generous Dutch friends Peter and Ans.

  5. Βασσίλη, για θυμήσου πως μου έστειλες αρκετά ποιήματά σου. Αν τα χρειάσεσε θα στα εστείλω.

    Σε λίγο θα εκδίδουν τα τέσσερα δικά σου ποιήματα που μετάφρασα για το παράρτιμα στην Τενερίφη.

    Να είσαι καλά.

  6. Mario,

    Καλοσύνη σου, φίλε και σε ευχαριστώ--αυτά τα ποιήματα τα έχω στο εξωτερικό σκληρό μου δίσκο.

    Στείλε μου ένα email για να δώ αν θα το λάβω--κάτι δεν πάει καλά και δεν μπορώ να λάβω κανένα γράμμα από την παλαιά μου διεύθυνση.
