My laptop wouldn’t boot up properly this morning. The IT Helpdesk picked it up before noon and by late afternoon, the hard drive had been re-imaged, with only a fraction of my files being successfully retrieved. A little is better than nothing, that’s what I’ve been trying to tell myself. And of course, there’s always some software or other which I can try to use to retrieve what had been effectively deleted by the re-imaging. I just don’t want to dwell on it. Some things you just lose.
