Desert Horses

Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay.

Computer problems!!! ACK~

My computer was fine this morning at 5 a.m. but by 5:15 a.m. it was kaput. Nothing. Nada. I couldn't turn it off. Finally, I unplugged it, plugged it in again, but the stupid fan just ran and ran and ran and it never did boot up. So, I am sans computer today (I borrowed hubby's laptop just for this!) I can't post anything because...DUH...ALL my photos are on my desktop. I don't think they've been backed up since...about a year ago (shudder). I know, I know...I should back them up more often. I am hoping that it is something simple that our son can fix. The last time it crashed (and I got a new hard drive), all my photos were saved and put on the new hard drive, so we'll see. Please keep your fingers crossed for me, okay? We are driving up to the horses this morning. It snowed up in the mountains all day yesterday and this morning we can't even see them! But, we'll try. The CHP sometimes closes the road up to the ranch, so we'll see how far we get! Take care and give your horses a hug from me!

Keeping fingers crossed - I hate computer problems!

Oh dear! I use a service called Mozy because I needed to live computer anxiety free. It backs up for you, you don't have to do anything.

Anyway, hope it all resurrects without loss of a single photo!

I hope your drive was uneventful and your computer is healing.
