Moose warts ugly but benign: Moose | adn.com
excerpt from above:
Quote:

Calls are pouring in to the Homer office of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game about moose frequenting the Baycrest and Skyline neighborhoods that have large "tumors" all over their bodies.

The good news is that this is a benign disease with no discernible health risk to the moose.

The bad news is that these unattractive moose won't make the cover of Alaska magazine.

I have photos of moose with tumors! They might be on a back-up drive. If I can get to them tomorrow, do you want them posted here?

TheLorax 08-28-2009 05:17 PM

I would like to see those photos. Please do share them.

Thank you Sage. Your photos would be a welcome addition.

Uhhhh, houston, there's a problem...
I connected that backup drive to the laptop. That drive stored pix from a tower computer. When I connected the drive, it made the usual grinding noises and I got a message that a driver was successfully installed, indicating to me that it had never before been connected to the newer laptop.

When I "explored" the contents all it had were the pix from the laptop which it somehow immediately got, and all the older pix were gone. :bang

My son has the tower now in NY so I sent him a panicky email yesterday. Today I heard from him that he's in Maine!

I not only don't have the bumpy mooses, I have none of my other pix. And I'm still panicking. :weeping

Staff 08-29-2009 10:27 PM

Try not to panic. There may very well be a simple fix you're overlooking.

Sage 08-29-2009 10:28 PM

I tried "sort by date" hoping to find anything prior to when I got the laptop last Sept but no luck.

Staff 08-29-2009 10:37 PM

Let it go Sage. There is no need to torment yourself over moose wart photos.

Tomorrow will be a new day. Our children are often times more computer savvy than we are. Let your son have a chance at helping you locate your photos. Chances are very good they are there and are recoverable.

There are recovery services. Do you back up your hard drive? That is another possible way to recover photos. There are many ways to recover photos. Don't make yourself sick over this. It's 9:30 at night. Your son may be in bed.

Staff 08-29-2009 10:39 PM

Correction.

I'm the west coast. You and your son are the east cost where it is 11:30. Your son has most likely turned in for the evening.

Try hard not to let this upset you. I am sure your son will have options for you to try.

Thank you for thinking of us. The moose wart photos can wait indefinitely.

We could ask Dave Stiles if he has any pictures of moose with warts. I bet he only has photos of handsome moose, though. :wha

This child is 50! :D I gave him the Sony Vaio tower computer last month and his plan was to reformat the drive and use it for trying out programs. I hope he's been too busy to follow through! I guess he's catching a quick last-of-the-summer vacation before the kids are back in school. But he always says to use at least two different backup systems. That drive was the backup and the only one for that computer once the computer was gone. Hope to hear from him before Monday.

Love computers when all goes well, but if not, I freak! :bang

Staff 08-29-2009 11:14 PM

I would be freaking out too.

Have you ever heard of Carbonite?
Online Backup, Computer Backup Software & Remote Backup ? Carbonite.com

Carbonite is the service provider most of us use. FW recommends it.

Sage 08-29-2009 11:27 PM

Thank you Staff person!

havalotta 08-30-2009 12:58 AM

I read part of it and ran into this...........
"You agree to Use the Carbonite Products or Services for no longer than the trial or evaluation period unless you enter into another license and pay a license fee and associated taxes as applicable.
I am now left wondering how much they will charge you to continue using their services.
Do you know?

havalotta 08-30-2009 01:44 AM

Not bad!
According to hubby I don't need it as it's nothing he needs to worry about.
Looks like I'm out then as he pays the bills around here. :ohdear

Equilibrium 08-30-2009 12:49 PM

I lost 14,000 photos thanks to a brand new hard drive in a brand new computer having a defect that blew out my mother boards and corrupted my backup hard drive. They gave me a replacement hard drive and replacement mother boards... gee thanks. I use carbonite. It's a lot cheaper and tons safer than conventional back up systems.

Wow, Lib, that's got to be the worst!

I have great news tho... my son Skyped me tonight and took over my computer from 430 miles away via Yuuguu. It's really weird to lose control of your computer and see the cursor move and windows open while you're not touching anything. But, he found my pix!!! And I've found the moose with tumors. Now if I can just get it over here.........................Attachment 8334 omg! I did it! Here's the moose from my external drive!!! :clap

TheLorax 09-01-2009 09:51 PM

Oh thank gawd you found your photos. You poor baby you. You must have been on pins and needles waiting for remote help.

They routinely take over our computers to teach us where I work. It is a wonderful experience when someone else is in control who knows what they are doing. Sometimes I playfully tease with our IT staff and take the mouse away from them.

Equilibrium 09-01-2009 11:33 PM

Yup, 14,000 of them. We bought that new computer to safeguard our photos. Our other computer was find but it was three years old and we started worrying about what if... We splurged and bought a new computer. We hung on to the old one for a month to make sure everything was working well. I think it was ohhhhhhhhhhh... about a week after we donated the old computer to a school where it was zeroed out that the new one went kaput. That's the way the cookie crumbles some times. What are you gonna do. Anyway, I'm thrilled to death your son found all your photos. I had a pit in my stomach for you waiting to hear the outcome.

havalotta 09-02-2009 09:26 AM

Hip Hip Hoooooray! I'm so happy for you.............
