I woke up this morning, and she wasn’t there next to me.

I ran out into the living room; she wasn’t there either.

Sorrow filled my soul.

with a heavy heart, I walked over to “Old Faithful” and said…

“Will you help me write this blog about your competition ?”

and as expected, she said with a smile on her bright cheery monitor “Yes, it will be like the old days !!!”

I muttered under my breath “for now”

** end of poetry time **

It’s the first morning without my laptop mistress, I knew I was going to miss her, but i didn’t realize it would be this bad.   I noticed things were bad just 3 hours after I sent her away.

Each time I thought about calling her, telling her I missed her and that she should come back so that we could grow old together… but I knew that would be selfish of me. She needs time to grow and do her (skip to about 2:17) so she can come back and do what she was made for. (song lyrically NSFW)

So now, all the blog updates will be on “Old Faithful” or on the “mobile mistress” the problem with her is that she has trouble spelling

Well, The day has arrived. I just got my empty box to ship Helen (i mean Heather…) back to her homeland in.

One final backup and now it begins.

I have to erase all her memories now.

Every time I’ve ever done a restore like this, a little piece of me dies each time. Good thing I got this external hard drive this time 🙂

I’ve gotta erase school files, family photos, music, movies, everything. I’m pretty sure H.P. Would do it, but I have privacy issues
(normally, I would have a link to a previous post dealing with this issue, but mobile updates aren’t that fancy, so check my post on “eagle eye” movie )
Blame my information security teacher for that one.
I already miss my mistress; who will keep me warm on those cold lonely nights? Whose buttons will I push now?

With my parents arrival around the corner, and spring semester not far behind, I only wish I started this process earlier.

So I open my empty box; and it’s not so empty.

Upon further review, I find all of this stuff inside

They gave me packing supplies and forms to fill out, and instructions on how to properly pack my loved one for her journey.

As of now she is 60% back to factory settings/memories. I also gave to call fed-ex to either pick it up or me drop it off somewhere… More on that later.

** update **
I called FedEx (the people who sponsor the Orange Bowl) about a scheduled pick-up. The lady was so nice. They are picking her up later today even after dropping the box off not too long ago.

**update **

Sorrow washes over my soul. 2 really good photo-shoots i did recently (I like to take pictures of random things) Has disappeared.

I thought I did a good job in backing everything up. unfortunately “The Computer says no”

Well, all good things must come to an end…

As some of you might remember, My mistress Helen Heather Pi is still pretty sick. I’m getting her ready to be sent off to a facility for some preemptive tests; They might perform some surgery on her, I hope everything will be OK with her.

I’m currently backing up her memories… I swear she doesn’t forget a THING.

I’ll be tracking the progress as best as possible.
