2731 recipes to be exact, GONE!!! For 10 years I had happily been using the “Living Cookbook” program to archive my recipes. Yes, I had backups, on this blog and on paper (many of them), and all of them on a memory stick. When my hard drive literally died I lost all my programs, including Cookbook. Without the program I couldn’t access my backup files. It was then that we found out that Living Cookbook, along with their parent company, was no longer in existence. I couldn’t replace the program. I couldn’t access my files!
Enter Pedro, the miracle working computer guy. Somehow, somewhere, Pedro located a trial version of the “Living Cookbook” software. It doesn’t have my recipes, and it’s only good for 30 days, but it will help restore my archives which are now in “Master Cook” (long story).
Unfortunately, in order to restore the function of my hard drive, Pedro had to reformat it. That did get rid of the virus which had caused all the problems, but I also lost all my other programs. Among those was my photo software, so as of right now my camera is useless to this blog. I’m off to see if I can find the software I need for that. See you soon! And as always,
Be thankful for what life gives you.
