enid would like to apologise for her long absence. she has had the most horrible experience that a person could suffer. no, not christmas in front of the sound of music, but a crashed hard drive. enid has lost a lot of work, all her writing and many photographs. she also lost a lot of important numbers and passwords, including her blogger password (which she's managed to work out, at last).
the worst thing is that enid is usually quite good at backing things up, but that day she had to copy a lot of her photos around, and she needed space on her external hard drive during this process, so she deleted her backups. then, a day later, she pressed command-s to save her document, her cursor went into a spin and she never saw her hard disk again.
enid recommends everyone buy a very big hard disk and a backup program.
