Subject:Happy Birthday Bilbo & Frodo!!
Time:10:26 pm
Current Mood:irritatedirritated
I was hoping to post something for The Birthday but reading through my flist I've seen so many beautiful tributes and I knew I just wouldn't have time to come up with anything worthy enough. It's been one of those really irritating days when lots of little things keep going wrong - for instance, I've just spent an hour copying one of my pic folders to a cd only to find it wouldn't open:( I then found that none of my Memorex disks will open for some reason - thankfully I don't have too many of them. On top of which we've had the builders in for weeks and I'm getting so sick of them - although I am looking forward to the finished result. Anyway, musn't whine on this very special day. I apologise for not leaving comments to all the lovely birthday posts - I just wanted to at least give the birthday boys a mention even if I can't produce anything for them:) So ~ A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR DEAR HOBBITS ~ BILBO AND FRODO!!

I seem to recall that when you copy files to a CD, you have to close out the file before removing it or else you won't be able to retrieve the files. Could that be the problem?

It's good to hear from you!

I'm not really sure what 'close out the file means':) I've copied hundreds of files/folders onto disks before and rarely have a problem. But now this thing has suddenly cropped up but only with Memorex disks - the others seem ok. Oh well, something else that needs investigating!!

Well, it's just niggling little things really - nothing major - but you know how it is when they start to mount up ... and today I've made a determined effort to get my external hard drive to back up my files without any success whatsoever:( I've never really had any luck with it - ah well, something else for the list:) *hugs*

Sorry you've had a rough day - how frustrating to do all that work and then not be able to open them. Hope you can figure out the problem!!

Oh sweetheart! I'm sorry you had such a frustrating day.. i hope today is better for you.

I wouldn't worry too much about not doing a special post for The Birthday.. they are in your heart ( well one of them certainly is..) and that's all that matters :)

Take care x

"hope today is better for you."

Thanks, Belle. Actually, if anything today is worse:D I bought a quite expensive hard drive a couple of years ago and have never had much luck with it. I decided to make another determined effort to back up my hard drive - without any success. And the builders are still here:( Ah well - things could be much worse, I know:)

"they are in your heart ( well one of them certainly is..) and that's all that matters :)"

That's very true:)

Oh dear!! Fingers crossed things will improve.. remember, we have Adrenalin Junkies tomorrow..yay!

I'm considering getting an external hard drive so that i can back up my files and free up some space, but if your experience is anything to go by, maybe i'd better think again :/

You sound like me at the moment! I haven't had time for a proper tribute so I dug out the pic of my wonderful day standing outside Bag End looking down at the party tree! Hope the building work goes well.......

sometimes words is all one needs, so happy birthday again to those adorable hobbits!

i'm not sure what's going on with your cds, but i've heard some complain about memorex. have you used them in the past with no problem?

I never take much notice of what make cds are when I buy them, but I've just checked and find that I have very few Memorex. The cd-r seem to be ok, I have one cd-rw that is ok but the rest - about 4 rw's, I have a problem with. Oh well, it's a lesson learned - I won't buy them again:)
