So, hilarious thing.|
My laptop? With all the malfunctioning?
Seems to have been *creative*.
See, it reported that it had copied all the files in my /2009/ directory, which contains all my uni work, to my external hard drive.
That's not the funny bit.
The funny bit is that it actually only copied about half of them.
Can you guess which subdirectory it missed almost all of? This is the hilarious bit.
It missed almost all of my "Field Linguistics" directory.
Missing: about six hours or so of transcription work.
Missing: all of my "field notes" on elicitation sessions. Those are unrecoverable if my laptop's hard drive is fucked.
ARE YOU LAUGHING YET? I AM LAUGHING SO HARD RIGHT NOW. LAUGHING, LAUGHING, LAUGHING.
I am going to take my laptop to the Asus service centre now.
