Child abuse #4

No computer!!

My sorry little box that I call a computer finally spat the dummy on Friday night and refused to play at all, so the child had to go without the internet on a prime teenage networking/bebo night. It was razor blades all round, and she's probably now used all her 2000 texts as well.

I knew it was coming and had intended take off all the important data for safekeeping elsewhere this week, but the chaos that was work meant I didn't have time.

So now after 4 hours and 600 restarts I have reinstalled windows, updated everything (even tho Microsoft tells me it's not going to support my platform any more) and managed to save all the music files, both mine and child's (phew) and my images which of course is all I care about. Sadly I have accidentally (aka on purpose) deleted all the child crap and her profile.

So there I am feeling well pleased with myself that I've got it running again and connected to the world so I finally let the child on and what does she do.....moan loudly that all her little tool bars and widgets are gone and it doesn't look the same.

I now wish I'd taken it to work and let it sit on the office floor for a week!

Take it to the office for a few days anyway. Tell her if she whines about it too much then its visit to the office may be extended.

Oh she's whining non stop. Turns out her music has GONE, and she didn't tell on the first night I had it running, and before I'd deleted her profile. She'd stored her music in a non MP3 format in and odd file somewhere. I'd looked in media player library and seen her titles and thought all was ok, but it turned out she'd lost all her source files AND she had sod all on her MP3 player cos she'd let her mate load all her tunes on to it!!!!

Life sux in the teenage world right now!!! Not for Mummy tho cos I don't have to hear her misuc over and over and over and over....
