Lesson Of The Day...




This afternoon, I had one of these &^%$@!!! moments when I accidentally overwrote a file which I spent hours working on it last week. I thought I saved another copy in the server but when I checked, nay, didn't do it... In my 11 years, this is my 2nd or 3rd 'accident'... Gah!!! Can't blame anyone... blame it on the application which crashed a few moments before that and also my quick fingers...

Anyway, when I was in the shower earlier, I suddenly remembered... I think I saved a copy in my disket!!! *CROSS FINGERS & TOES* I think I did... I hope I did!!! Well, I'll know tomorrow...

So, lesson of the day... back up your files!!! This is a community service brought to you by me... Good night...

I had this experiences before when I did my final year thesis, it cost me sleepless for 1 week to redo everything. I hope u did save a backup... good luck!

Cocka Doodle said...

Luckily, I got backup all my humsap files/
Otherwise, you ppl won't get my daily dose of 'cheers' jor.

AceOne118 said...

Hehehe! i learned my lesson well the other time my hard disk koyak!

U.Lee said...

Hi Angel, I think computers now causes more stress than anything else. Imagine a fellow worker in next cubical sending you an email asking for a file or whatever? Or the boss in next room sending an email to come see him/her?
Or maybe going to Gentings on holiday and bringing your lappie? Arhaaa ha ha.
Have a great day, Angel.
p/s...you do your thinking in the shower? Heh heh.

L B said...

WHY AM I SO LATE TODAY? WHY? BECAUSE? TELL ME WHY? WHY? WHY? CAN TELL R NOT? oppps, only after typing all that out did I see I left my CapsKeY on!! TFK!!! Anyway, backing up is de rigeuer nowadyas, if you don't want to risk getting pregnant. Still, sometimes we forget, so that explains all that unwanted pregnancies, ya? Ya.. Use the best brand! Don't skimp! DUREX forever, and don't recycle them like Cocka!

vegemaster said...

aiyor~ Dim gai gum see-too-pid kar? haha..but then again..i guss this happens to everyone once in a while..

Lets just hope when it happens to us(you) the file that was overwrite isnt important..I hate it when it happens to photos...Thats the Worst!!!

Simple American said...

I hope you did. *HUGS*

This is why my new lappie will have a burner.

kyh said...

c o n s u e l a said...

aiks! no worries...
I hope and cross my fingers with you that you have it backed-up on a disk!
I can so relate, because I lost most of my homework files which I did not backup when Rory the lappie decided to go kaput on me, a few weeks shy from FINALS somemore! *literally pulling hair then* (haha)

MJ said...

"In my 11 years, this is my 2nd or 3rd 'accident'..."

Maybe you are getting old... Kidding! :)

Sucks big time when this happen! I understand the pain. It's also like typing so much already and suddenly there's power blackout.

angel said...

Dear ah nel,...
Neh, the father's kid lar :P

**********
Dear moz,...
Yeah, ah nel said kid... he asked me whose kid... I said the dad's kid ;)

You, surely I'd expect you to do no less than 3 backup copies :P Your pou pui, sure lah have to backup the backup of the backup, kan?? :P

**********
Dear mj,...
Hello there! I wasn't too sure who you were until I checked where you came from hehe...

*brings Red Carpet*

Make yourself comfy and if you like it, can read a bit of my crap :P

Haa... gettin' old? Who isn't?? :P

Power black out is still okay because at least you still have what you were working on earlier (if you have saved it), but overwriting an entire file with no backup is a different thing altogether... :)

**********

MJ said...

Angel,
LOL. Very red carpet. Coz I have 2 accounts in Wordpress and Blogger.

Yeah but when you are 60yo, you are going to think 20sth is soo young! :D

Still sayang & frustrated la, esp didn't manage to save :S

angel said...

Dear mj,...
I'm glad you approve of the Red Carpet ;)

When I'm 60 yo, I'm gonna try to look like 40 yo... ha... impossible? Possible wan... ;)

I'll wish that you won't get frustrated where files saving are concerned. How about that? :)
