If You Seek Amy

Sunday night I was watching 60 minutes (of course) and they did a story about computer viruses (with fucking Lesley Stahl again, goddammit I swear I have something against her).



Now I know two days later, the internet is hip with Conficker. But on Sunday night I was all "Aaaaarrrrrrooooonnnnnn!!!! Fix mah computer!!!! Must get on internets!!!!"

And he was all "Huh?"

And I was all "Lesley Stahl says my computer is gonna go BOOM. Don't wanna go BOOM!"

And he was all "Huh?"

And I was all "FOR THE LOVE OF CHRIST, WORK YOUR COMPUTER VOO DOO MAGIC AND SAVE MY COMPUTER FROM AN UNTIMELY DEATH. And be sure to back up my photos."

To which he realied, "Okay, woman. Calm down."

So he got out our back up hard drive (which is one sexy motherfucker, I tell you what) and backs up my computer.

Monday morning I wake up to Aaron looking at my computer and tells me, "It's amazing you're computer is still up and running..."

"Whoa, did you find Conficker?"

"No, you have less than one meg of available memory left."

"What'd Conficker do to my memory?"

"Nothing. You've downloaded too many damn pictures."

"Oh."

So now I'm not allowed to do anything on my computer other than be on the internet. Opening or creating any files will, according to my husband, make my computer go BOOM.

This is especially heartbraking to blogging, because hello? Blogging without pictures? How do I expect anyone to come over for a feed reader without pictures? THE WORLD WILL END WITHOUT PHOTOS!

you could save your old pictures on a disc and delete them off your computer to make more room for other new picuters. Hope you are having a good week.

And what does this have to do with me? :)

I have way too many photos, too. And now I've filled up the external hard drive. I don't really know what to do now. Get another hard drive??

You should get an External drive. [=
it'll pretty much save your life! haha

I got mine for 89 dollars 250 gb!

They beat me to it... get an external drive, and there will be no boom.

Someone told me that if we store our photos on a flash drive, then we are not using our memory. I am not clear on how we do it, but I am willing to think it is possible. I am not that savvy about the inerds of a computer but to save memory, it sounds good.

I save all my photos on an external hard drive...that way I have more room. Not that it was THAT big of a deal...Now, my iTunes? THAT was a big deal...Rich about fell off his chair when he was setting up the drives for that because according to him, it had taken him 4 years to amass an iTunes library that big. What can I say? Me likey my music and video...

You're on blogging/computer restriction? That's not good....I would be a freakazoid myself!
