I spent a good part of the evening re-creating my Baby Cakes books (so far I am through June.) I had started the year in this ledger, got some good-hearted flack and moved everything to a handy excel spreadsheet.

I have both mailed and faxed it and will be faxing it again tomorrow. In the mean time the drive saver folks wanted to either send it back (possible more damage) or recover the data. I went with a middle of the road option. They have pulled off the jpegs and saved the rest of the “0’s” and “1’s” incase I get refunded. They will however only hold on to the rest of the un-restored data for another month. I now have 6,000 pictures on an external hard drive that once I get them back on the computer I can use as that back up drive.
