What's in a name

So. I have a new laptop. No, not a desktop computer, but a laptop. Again. I couldn't see how I would get a complete desktop home, since I only have my bike, so I went for a new laptop again. With a seperate number pad. And a lcd screen. With room for cd's and dvd's. And usb-sticks.

But I think the most important thing today was the fact that even though my external hard drive was fried, it wasn't the hard drive at all. It was the wiring that had burned. So, I will try to put up a lovely photo from my old ehd in a new casing into this post. Here goes nothing!

It worked, it worked! I now have a photo of a baby hippo that I took more than a year ago. I thought it was lost in the deserts of cyberia, but I was lucky! Yippee...


  1. Congratulations on your new 'baby' laptop and your once lost but now found photos:-)

  2. Aha! But I thought Cyberia was a jungle?

  3. Is it pink or is it blue?

    Cute hippo and hip hip for the photos still being there!

  4. I want to hug that hippo!

  5. Cyberia -- I like that! And if you look behind the desk of my DESK top computer, you'd see it IS a jungle!

  6. Cyberia — great word. Dick's office is part of Cyberia, and my desk in the dining room is rapidly reaching that level.
    Wahoo for the ehd. I need one myself. Your experience, or your apprehension before you found out the experience wasn't what it seemed, scared me witless. (I didn't have far to go.)
    Good to have you back in the loop! Hi from Dick and Lindy.
    Luv — K

  7. That is wonderful news. I send all my photo to Kodak so I know I always have them somewhere else.
