ARGH
I do not believe it!!!!!

My synchronisation between two of my computers has clearly not been working, and I have somehow managed to delete a screen edited story, rather than the original. Fortunately, I had printed it out to do hard copy edits, so am now having to go through it word by word to pick up the changes I'd already made as well as the hard copy edits.

And typically, it couldn't be with a nice, short story, could it? No, of course not; that would be too simple. It's with a 13,250 word story.

Oh, this is just the kind of thing that pisses me off! I'm sorry. But at least you had the text printed.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 6th August 2006 16:18 (UTC) (Link)
Indeed. We have to be thankful for small mercies.

Thank you so much for your concern *Hugs*

Now stop banging your head on the desk, that's only going to give you a headache. Take a nice deep breath - go on do as I tell you *breathing deeply with you* and again... Now you're allowed to scream once *plugs ears*. I bet you're feeling a lot better now!


13,250 words?!! Poor thing! :)

*lots of hugs*
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 6th August 2006 16:19 (UTC) (Link)
You're right, it did hurt.

Tried the head slapping too, that also hurt.

Muttered a few choice words :-) mainly directed at myself! But I did feel better, thank you.

And thank you for the hugs. Much appreciated.

LOL

Oh, dear, Caz. Thank you for this. It made me smile - and after the morning I had and my stiff neck, I needed that.

And yes, a hug is wonderful - thank you so much.

I don't need to tell you which story it is, do I? I swear that story is fated :-( I'm sure I have caught everything, but I think I'm going to have to do another read through just in case. ARGH!!!!!!!!!

Aww Nikki I shall headdesk with you too. 13,250 words huh......
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 6th August 2006 16:20 (UTC) (Link)
Thank you, Ren. That is kind of you - but be warned, it hurts. Ouch.

Oh no!

*many hugs*

That's awful. You have my sympathies.

Hope head isn't too hurt by it's meeting with the desk.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 6th August 2006 16:21 (UTC) (Link)
Thank you for the hugs and sympathies.

Head and desk both survived the run in - so that was something.
londonronnie From: londonronnie Date: 6th August 2006 14:15 (UTC) (Link)
Ouch! Something of a "worst case scenario," eh?

Just thank your lucky stars that you had a hard copy - a lot of work involved, I know, but better that than losing your masterpiece completely!

{{hugs}}
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 6th August 2006 16:22 (UTC) (Link)
Indeed. Could have been worse. Might not have had the hard copy at all.

Thank you for the hugs.

How very annoying - horrible feeling isn't it?
Hope you're managing to work your way through it again and that you've recovered from the head-banging!

nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 6th August 2006 16:22 (UTC) (Link)
It is indeed.

Head has now recovered; neck hasn't quite from the angle it's been at, but yes, I'm okay now.

Sharing does help :-)
maubast From: maubast Date: 6th August 2006 16:27 (UTC) (Link)
I am so sorry to hear this. How terrible!

headbanging is dangerous. I suggest smacking Tony instead.

What do you use to synchronise your PCs?
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 7th August 2006 08:16 (UTC) (Link)
Thank you, dearest. *Hugs*

I suggest smacking Tony instead.

::Giggle::

What do you use to synchronise your PCs?

Lap Link. It was the only product I could find that would do a two-way synchronisation and also synch stuff that had been changed that day. Everything else went one way only or wouldn't synch files that weren't at least 12 hours old. Also, it was one that I could schedule. What I don't like about it, is that if a file is open when it's trying to synch, rather than just skip it, it basically stops synchronising. Also, I've noticed recently that it seems not to be doing a 100% job :-(

If you know of anything else that would do an even better job - please let me know.

Idle, vaguely related question:

Have we ever seen Ducky use a computer?
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 7th August 2006 08:17 (UTC) (Link)
Hmmm.

You know, I don't think we have. He has one down in Autopsy, but I honestly cannot recall him actually using it.

i feel so sorry for you. that must feel like a punch in the face. good luck
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 7th August 2006 08:18 (UTC) (Link)
Thank you so much. I appreciate it.

Yikes...

*hugs*

Send me an email with your latest Gibbs/Ducky fics, please? Don't want to sniff around too much on friendslist to avoid long internet use (new rule! Ick.)
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 7th August 2006 08:18 (UTC) (Link)
Thank you.

*Hugs* back.

I shall do that thing.

I miss you!
the_haunt From: the_haunt Date: 7th August 2006 01:13 (UTC) (Link)
Oh, how frustrating! Even though it means more work, at least you had a hard copy to work from. ::hugs::
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 7th August 2006 08:19 (UTC) (Link)
Thanks, Ghostie.

Hugs much appreciated.

Oh, yes, having the hard copy was the saving factor.
sharpiesgal From: sharpiesgal Date: 7th August 2006 04:24 (UTC) (Link)
That can be categorized as a classic "Aw, Fuck!" moment.

Sorry that happened. *hugs*

I have had several of those today, and am still dealing with the aftermath of one.

*double hugs*
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 7th August 2006 08:20 (UTC) (Link)
It can indeed.

Thank you for the hugs.

Oh, I'm sorry to hear that you've had those moments too and that you're still dealing with the aftermath. I do hope things improve.

::Mega hugs::
