Drat!!!

I think i've shot myself in the foot. I was trying to add a new widget and the computer chose to crash at the exact same time. Talk about coincidence!

The old "moon" template which i'd constructed so painstakingly has been reduced to cyber dust. I've also lost my famous footer message, and some links i'd accumulated over 3 years. Bad day, today. :-(

I don't like it, Artie. :-(
I would've redesigned my blog but i'm just too pressed for time these days.
I was going to start my photoblog/website and i've put it on the back burner waiting for the rush at work to simmer down a li'l.

Awww..its ok !

You sure can come up with smth very briliant again !

My pc crashed 3 days before my fial viva presentations...n I lived thru it !

Trevor Penn said...

Cinderella,

It can't be a coincidence that my laptop crashed the night before my thesis defence!!! I had to prepare the whole presentation overnight all over again. Luckily though, i only lost the presentation and not my thesis. LOL, that would've made a long blog post... !!!

Diana said...

I can understand ..that happened to me once...creating the blog dashboard with all the links in a pain.....hope u get the template back...

Trevor Penn said...

@ diana
Thanks for understanding. The old template isn't coming back. I'll have to live with what i've got. :(

Keshi said...

good to know that. I've had several other losses like that and I've bitten my lips and moved on. LOL! Better luck next time mate!

Keshi.

Trevor Penn said...

@ keshi
Yeah, lesson learned. I'm going to keep a copy of the html code saved, just in case! :-)

Cecilia said...

ne tips on how u redesign ur blog..i want to get mine to look different too! thanks :)

Trevor Penn said...

@ cecilia
Good to see you here. As for redesigning your blog template, there r many ways to skin this cat.

The simplest is to use google to help you find a template you like. (many ppl design templates as a hobby). You can download the html code, host the images (on photobucket or in your case deviant art might work) and then you say voila! :-)

I hope that helps.

Purvi said...

I had a computer issue myself. Lost quite a bit of pictures and video. I feel your pain!

Trevor Penn said...

@ purvi
Sorry about your computer trouble. :-(

I'll let you know when I post any pics here or when i launch my photoblog. I should warn you though, I seldom do any portraiture.

Trevor Penn said...

Yeah, well, what can I do about it? How you been, oldtimer? :)
