I have been having computer problems of late. I wanted to back up my laptops hard drive, which I do every so often because I know how it feels to have a hard drive fail and lose everything. For some reason the backup process fails. I spent 2 days wrestling with it trying to figure out what's wrong and got nowhere. Last night Sweet Hubby spent several hours trying to get it to work too. We know my laptop hard drive is healthy (good to know) and is not causing the problem. We know that the portable drive I'm trying to back up onto is fine too. He upgraded all the drivers and the backup software and ran test after test. Still no answer. So, why isn't it working? We haven't a clue. Maybe the cable has gone bad? I will have to see if I can get a new one and test that hypothesis. In the meantime, I hope my laptop doesn't crash and burn.

It's still horribly smokey around here. The rain that we were hoping for on Tuesday never materialized. I'm coughing pretty much all the time and using my inhaler several times a day. Today my throat decided it's gonna be sore until things clear up. I sure would love a few days of rain right now.

Live long and prosper. \\//
