F&S JULY 8, 08

Still havent installed my puter yet.
Colin ran a chkdsk on the suspect hdds, that took a looooonnnngggg time because there were a LOT of faults.
Finally gave up on it and tried to just salvage & copy over whatever is still good which took another loooonnnnnnggg while.
Then I discovered our leaking split unit aircon has been leaking into more than the bucket we cleverly placed under it.
A couple dozen books spoiled, 2 bookcases spoiled, bottom of 1 photo album all icky.
Thankfully Mac's 1st month photo album (which also has my ultrasounds plus misc souvenirs) was in a protective plastic case so the album itself was ok. I would've cried buckets if it wasnt.
So I've been busy moving stuff out, inspecting damage and cleaning up those that can be salvaged.
We'll be getting a new aircon, a simple window unit this time, tomorrow probably. And new bookcases.
That means moving furniture around, taking stuff out, putting them back in again.
Sigh...

I've added a slideshow of the LOs you ladies very kindly sent in using my templates ----->
I've updated the July Daily Download links there too ----->
Also, while backing up my Bookmarks, I was reminded of the other stuff I have there besides shop links and made up some Resources links as well. Brushes, actions, LR presets, printing sites, sketch sites, etc etc. Yup, to the right too ------>
That's pretty much most of my 'Digiscrap Misc' boomarks & when I feel like being hardworking again, I'll add in Fonts, Quotes & Poems & Tutes & whatever else I find as I look through the rest of my rusty bookmarks.

btw, any Harvestmoon fans here?? I came across my Harvestmoon spreadsheet & it made me a little itchy to play again. I know it's old but pre-Mac days, Colin & I used to stay up all night to play, even on work days. He played the controls, I sat beside with my laptop & trusty spreadsheet open, instructing him where to go, who to talk to, what to buy, when to buy, what to plant, who to seduce & how to get powerberries.
We never finished all 5 years because we already pretty much got everything by Year 3 & it was no longer challenging. All the animals, fish, crops, berries, all the girls were on max hearts but we married Ann, of course, & had the baby & were probably the equivalent of billionaires IRL. Wished I live in a Harvestmoon world :D I could do with a spreadsheet info of my life! When Mac gets a little bigger, I think I'll teach him to play. Besides being fun, it'd be great for building mathematical, social & some logical skills :D

K, I'm rambling. So anyways, I got some finds & sales for those of you who're still around. Haven't dl-ed anything much myself the last couple days, it's sad when a designer can make a kit faster than I can dl!
