To add insult to injury...
As you probably all know my Treasure Chest of Links is very dear to me. So to be sure I never lose all the hard work, I have all the files backed up on TWO external drives PLUS I gave another external drive to Vampfever last year...
How it works is that each link you see for a download, I've ripped or downloaded as the videos / audio come up.
Then, at the end of the month (or a few weeks into the next month), I number each entry.
Then I make a copy of all those files I have on my computer and rename say the first file of the month, "2017 TCL01 01".
Then I strip those 'no name' files to remove all the properties of the file.
I then upload those super-duper clean files to MediaFire and if some still get flagged, I delete them from MediaFire and upload them on Mega instead (Mega is the one place that cares the least about copyright).
Then I bring in the download links so you guys can grab whichever file you want.
Once I'm completely done with a month, I click on "Edit", same as you guys can do on your own posts, select the entire post, copy it and paste it into a WordDocument, so if the need ever arises, I basically would only have to paste each post back on the board.
So, I'm really safe, right?
Yesterday, while I was twiddling my thumbs waiting for answers or results from all the peeps working on restoring my board, I decided to be extra sure I had all those WordDocuments in one place... So I started from the very beginning of the Treasure Chest of Links, back to 2009 and put them all in one folder on my laptop... It worked swimmingly... until I hit December 2016... I have no friggin' clue what I did, but I deleted everything on BOTH my external drives and my laptop... All I was left with was Mediafire!!!! So I downloaded all the December files, which wasn't that bad... But then, I had to go find the original poster (YT, IG, tweet, etc.)... Easier said then done... I did part of it until 2:00 a.m., fell asleep at the computer, woke up at 6:00 a.m.
... and I just finished December 2016!!!!
Now, understand that if we had our board working, I would simply have had to go in the December post, edit, select the whole thing and paste it into a WordDocument...
I feel like I'm being punished for something or other, but I swear! I've been sitting in my lazyboy most of my retirement except when I babysit my grandchildren!!!!
/end of rant
Now I'm going to take a looooooooooooong nap and start reconstructing January which I would have had to do no matter what!

atomom: I'm on my umpteenth time watching Adam Lambert kill the Rat's song. He's just so much fun to watch and hear, makes me smile, he's so infectious. Can we have another one in hisown starring musical, please?
