HD update
It's dead.

Everything is gone.

All of it.

All of my art, all of my fiction, all of my personal work. Gone.

Not to mention all my videos of Orli and Vig, all the tv shows, all the clips of appearances, all of it--gone. All my lyrics, music, pictures... gone.

I just want to cry.

10 years of work. Gone.

I think I'm going to be sick.

Yikes. Can't the comp shop retrive anything at all? *hugs hard* I don't know what I got that can I send you.

They're trying, but I'm told "it doesn't look or smell good". In other words--fried.

I don't know either. I just don't know where to start. I just need my vids and my pictures and art and fiction.

Sorry, I'm a mess right now.

*Holds you tightly* That's horrible, and very sad, that happend to me a few days ago everything eric/orli gone from my computer because it was gay and had a virous. I had saved some eric images so I didn't lose all of eric. And maybe next time you should have a back up like I did. Although I still didn't have everything back though, but most of it though. *hugggles you again, brings Orli your way then*

P.S I'll have those caps sent to you today. If not then I'll make it up to you by making like a header or some icons of Orli for you.


Hooch ;)

That *was* my backup. That's the kicker. I have a 6 year old pc and had been backing up/moving thing over to the less than 2 years old external in case the pc went. Fat lot of good that did me. I don't have a dvd burner so I can't back up 120 gig of data without using a shitload of cd's.

You still have allt he Eric pics I sent you? I still have those on the pc. I can re-send. And I have smaller ones I didn't send. I still have my Troy folder on here so I have all my Eric stuff intact. I'll give you what I have if you want. I'll have to burn it and mail it though. It's quite a bit.

I don't even know what to say :( *HUGE HUGS*
Let me know if i can help somehow.

You got any vids/avi's/movies from dl's of Orli and Vig? I lost *everything. If you could send me that stuff, I'd be forever grateful. Write me at Ara@kixxster.org and I'll give you my addy and we can figure out how much money I'd need to send you.

I don't know if these help. I did a google search on your user name and came up with this site where you've posted or supplied images.

Thanks honey--I have those still. Just none of mmy personal art, pics or fic. I've been writing for years in other fandoms and I've lost all my pics in those as well. All my downloaded vids, all my zine work--all gone.

But thanks for trying.

I have all the LotR, Pirates and Troy stuff still on my pc. All my personal art, pics and Lotr/Vig/Orli vids are gone. I want those back!

Sorry. I'm just a mess right now. But I do appreciate you trying. *hugs*

Oh no!
*hugs you tight*
I've never lost that much in a crash, but I've been in your shoes and it hurts... so sorry sweetie!
araestel From: araestel Date: December 27th, 2005 05:22 am (UTC) (Link)
This is the second time more me.

I take care of my stuff. I'm very careful because I don't have the money to fix or replace. But two times now, the power supply has fried my hd and I've lost everything. I'm sick of electricity.

11 gig's of my life--gone. Ten years of art and fiction--gone. All my vid clips and music gone. All my personal pics and pics from other fandoms--gone

I think I'm going to be sick.

Last year, on January 1st, I had the same "gift" and I thought I was going to die. If I can help, please let me know, sweetheart. *hugs*
araestel From: araestel Date: December 27th, 2005 05:23 am (UTC) (Link)
You have any vids of Orli and Vig you could send me on a cd? Like clips from premiers, e-town clips, HoV clips--all of it. Any of it? Any vids of any kind. I had them all. Now they're gone.

I 'm sorry, I just can't see for the tears.

*hugs*

*cries for you*

That is the most horrible thing in the world!!!!!

if there is anything I can do just let me know. I have a LOT of Orlando clips and I'd be willing to copy them all on disks for you and send you!! It's the least I could do :(

*hugs you so tight*
araestel From: araestel Date: December 27th, 2005 05:25 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh that would be wonderful!!!!!!!! I'll love you forever!!!! I lost all of that.

Got any lyrics? I've been collecting lyrics for years and use them for my art.

Write me at Ara@kixxster.org and I'll give you all my info.

*hugs* You are really the best!!

Aww, Jesus, hon... there's something in the friggin' water, I swear. I havn't been around the last 2 days because.. guess what... my computer died! Spooky. I just got it working again, and hopefully I got everything recovered (I havn't looked yet, just a little afraid to look)but I know exactly how you feel. This also hapened to me this past February, and I lost EVERYTHIN that time. It's heart wrenchingly painful. *hugs you* If you need any PSP8 or PS7 brushes/gradients, etc. I'd be more than hapy to send you zips... I don't know what you use.
araestel From: araestel Date: December 27th, 2005 05:44 am (UTC) (Link)
*hugs* THis is the second time I've lost everything. I'm just not equipped for this kind of loss. And *I'm* the one who takes care of stuff and gets laughed at because I tend to be anal. I asked for another HD for Christmas and didn't get it--just in case something like this happened. I don't have a dvd burner so I couldn't back stuff up that way either. It just makes me sick. What I'd retained from the last loss was all on this external hd. So it's all gone. It's like losing it all over again.

I still have all my PS stuff, so I'm good there. I'm jsut missing all my vids, personal pics, art and fiction and all my pics I use for art in other fandoms. I need my lyrics too.

I need a good cry.

I still have all my LotR, PotC and Troy stuff on this actual pc along with all my brushes, textures, lights and stuff. So if there's anything I can do to help you--let me know.

*hugs*

OMG, I´m so sorry this happened to you, hon :( ! What a nightmare!
I recently saw a test/report on TV that specialists are even able to retrieve data from complete damaged discs, so there´s still hope. *hugs*
araestel From: araestel Date: December 27th, 2005 06:02 am (UTC) (Link)
I've got my tech working on it, but from what he says, it doesn't look good.

I'm sorry hon :( *Hugs*
araestel From: araestel Date: December 27th, 2005 06:13 am (UTC) (Link)
I'm just sick over it.
un4scene From: un4scene Date: December 27th, 2005 06:07 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh, this is just such terrible news. I know how I felt when the laptop died, and it was at least the external that placated me.

I am not sure what I can offer, but whatever you need I'm happy to send it your way. If you think of anything I may have that you want just give a shout. We should have had you take a peek at the external when it was there.
araestel From: araestel Date: December 27th, 2005 06:14 am (UTC) (Link)
Can you send me any LotR vids you might have? I lost all those.
From: caplinsea Date: December 27th, 2005 06:09 am (UTC) (Link)
I am so sorry, I've been having similar problems recently, it's awful :( *hugs*

I have a ton of Viggo pics and a fairly good amount of viggo and orlando vids, so I may be able to help you if you if you need anything like that :)
araestel From: araestel Date: December 27th, 2005 06:17 am (UTC) (Link)
YES!!!!!! Yes, please!!!

My addy might be easier, so write me at Ara@kixxster.org and I'll give you my addy. *hugs* You'd be a lifesave!
