This message is from Angela’s husband, Tim.

The computer died (or was it killed?). It seems that a power surge of some sort hit it, because the power center, logic board and hard-drive all had to be replaced. No info was able to be retrieved from the hard-drive.

The good news is that a macintosh comes with a backup program. The bad news is that this computer has been so great for over 30 months, that I became complacent.

The good news is that we have everything saved (photo’s etc) from before July 30th. The bad news is we lost quite a bit of new info on the computer since then.

Fortunately it could have been worse. I had copied many photos onto a cd to have printed from our vacation and Angela’s blog pages were saved online. I was able to copy everything except the comments.

Anyway, it is time for me to publish this then, what was it I had to do? Oh, back everything up.

Angela will be with you shortly!
