We're back home and trying to catch up on everything!
Thanks to a new motherboard the computer is now mostly healed. The motherboard managed to take a few files with it in the pre-vacation death spiral. I've repaired most of them but there are a few annoying issues remaining that I'm in the process of troubleshooting. The computer crash was a a real wakeup call to be more disciplined about my backups. I didn't have a recent one and since I depend on this computer to run my business I was a bit concerned thoroughout the vacation that I might have lost important files. I'll be developing a better backup strategy this week (hello external harddrive!).
I have, oh, about 1300 photos to sort through from the vacation. A majority of them are likely pretty representative of my rather marginal photography skills but there should be a couple worth sharing. I'm hoping to post some this weekend after I catch up on the orders that came in while I was gallivanting through Ireland.
Not much knitting was accomplished while I was away. Let's just say that the driving portion of the vacation was very much a two-person activity (more on this later)!
Being in Ireland was a completely wonderful experience and I really enjoyed it, but it's always good to come home isn't it?
