A quick update

I am soooo tired right now. Work is just beyond crazy; I’ve been working more than 12 hours a day for the last couple of days just to finish a lot of stuff before I go on holiday. And our team is still understaffed, although we have hired/are under negotiation with the new people, so things should start improving soon. On top of that, my hard drive crashed last week, and just like that hours and hours of work vanished forever.  I had lots of writing on that hard drive as well, but thanks to whoever invented the blog and especially the ancient art of writing with pen and paper! If I didn’t still have my precious, precious paper notebooks I would have been seriously depressed right now. *

This will probably be my last post for a couple of weeks, but I promise, promise, promise that I will start updating my blog and start writing seriously again after my long overdue holiday. I am sure the magnificent landscapes of Patagonia (or so I heard) and the experience of meeting new and very interesting people (or so I hope) will free my mind and allow me to let go of the hectic of everyday life and to provide me with fresh inspiration anew for the months ahead.

* Hmm… I can’t help but wonder if there is a place where all the lost data go. A place like heaven, but then for all the ones and zeroes that are forever erased. I like to imagine that my writings and my reports have found a place where they can thrive. A place where they can meet all the other writings and reports and share their experiences on how they came into being. I hope they don’t mingle with the evil Powerpoint slides though. But those belong in hell anyway.

  1. That’s a shame about your hard drive, but there are ways to access the data on a failed hard drive. There are drive kits and the like specially designed to retrieve data on a hard drive that is in less-than-perfect condition. I suggest you find some method of backing up once you procure a new hard drive. There are several at your disposal.

    Regardless, hope you enjoy your vacation! It sounds like a holiday is exactly what you need right now.

    I know what it is like to lose stored data. *shudders* I hope that you are able to retrieve it.
    Enjoy your vacation!

    Hahaha, I love the idea of a place for lost data! I imagine them coming totally loose over there, no restrictions anymore, no control, hehe. I wonder what might happen. Maybe you can write about it someday.
