Uh Oh...

Something was wrong with my notebook when I came home from school and I had to use the recovery cds and well...recover it. Recovering it includes deleting everything in my computer, making it the same as when I first bought it last year. Since I had NO CHOICE, I did.
So...I lost my 800++ songs, my hundreds of pic, my downloaded programs, everything!! But...as if it's not bad enough, I just realised that I lost my OSW pattern too!!! AAARRRGGGHHH!!!!I've saved Orangina pattern inside my PDA phone some times ago, but haven't do so with my OSW pattern, and now it's gone!! What should I do??? Do you think I should purchase it again??
I'm having a problem with Lucky too. It involves corroding needle coating and pink-turns-greyish fabric. I can't post a picture now because I haven't install the program transfer the pic from my phone's camera. What I can say is I have different shades of pink for my left and right front side of the wrap. One greyish pink, another pale pink. It looks kinda weird I tell you. I posted about this with a cry for help in the Knitty Coffeeshop and got a lot of advice. Some of the more experienced knitter there told me to try something called Spray And Wash and Oxyclean. Since I'm pretty sure they're not available here, maybe I'll go to the supermarket and buy all the cleaning products. :(
Hopefully it'll turn out right. I like Lucky too much to give up.

Why don't you email Stefanie and see if she'll send it again. She'll be able to see you've paid for it and I'm sure if you explain she'll send you a copy. Computers though, you either love 'em and all that. My hubby is fixing my Dad's tonight as he's totally corrupted it. He just couldn't leave it alone and wait until Neil was around!

hi girl,
So sorry to hear about your mishap. Yeah try email Stef and see if she can send it again. Don't worry too much about Lucky, may be you could try some detergent or fabric bleach. Knit up a swatch and kinda test it out and see if it helps.

that suxs big time! sorry to hear that. About ur notebook, suggest u partition ur hard drive. Split it into C: drive and D: drive. Install softwares in C: drive and ur data in D: drive. That way, if ur operating system "touch wood" goes haywire and need 2 b reformatted ur data will still b intact in D: drive. Makes sense? Email me if you need clarification yea. Hope that helps with one of ur prob.

Very strange about the needle coating. I hope it washes out!
