You know it’s kind of ironic. This coming directly after the last blog I posted. The subject of the first one and then this. *Sigh* Oh yes the irony. Yes I bet you’re sitting there scratching your head and wondering, ‘Yeah get on with it already what is the deal?’
For the life of me I have no idea how I did this. You can ask, but alas I will simply have no answer for you. So I’m sitting here playing one of my biggest addictions on Facebook called PackRat. Firefox freezes up on me, so I get it shut down and then I open my browser back up. I get back to my PackRat page and I’m playing for a minute before I think to myself, “hmmm. There’s something wrong here.” I scratch my head and stare at the page. “Am I missing something?” I wonder aloud. But I just can’t put my finger on it. So I shrug my shoulders and continue on. Well there’s something I needed to do within the game so I had to pull up another page from my bookmarks to double check something. Now you see me sitting there with a light bulb going off above my head, mouth agape in disbelief.
( =O <-- It looked something like this.) All of my bookmarks were gone.
I don’t just mean one or two here or there. We’re talking ALL of them. Not even an empty folder to be found. See I’m very anal about my bookmarks. They’re all in separate folders according to category. Sometimes it goes even further and they are in yet other folders within their category folder. But I tend to be pretty lax on that for the most part. As long as they’re categorized. But anyway.
“This isn’t a problem.” I think to myself. You see I have something that backs up all of my bookmarks onto the web so I can easily transfer them from one laptop to another. I did that just recently though, once I got my new computer.
I’ll put this here for Angela’s sake because she loves it when I talk about the NEW computer. :D
I go to download all of my stuff back on to my computer. But to my dismay, that as well is empty. (Now the face I’m making looks something like this =S) But I have no idea what happened!
So a couple hours later as I’m stumbling aimlessly and having absolutely no enjoyment out of it, because let’s face it, do I really want to start all over again making a new bookmark list? No way! Well my friend Erika pops on and we’re chit chatting and I say “Oh so get this…” and I tell her what’s going on. She does her usually O_o. So now we’re both stumped. Did you try this? Yes nothing. What about this? Yep did that too. So she has me hold on and she’s trying things out and looking things up.
Then she finally says “Ok try this…” And starts typing out all this mumbo jumbo, to which I follow step by step. The end result? I HAVE MY BOOKMARKS BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would have had no clue what to do and Erika came to my rescue. <3>
Who would have thought such a little thing would have me so lost for those couple hours today.
