Sad Memories... - Jessie T. Wolf
So… tonight I did a bit of a cleanup on my computer. Burned all of my new art to CD, and deleted old junk that have been piling up in my folders over the past year. Gods, I’m such a packrat. X.x I had a bunch of old conversations saved in my Writing folder, so I spent most of the evening reading through some of them. A lot of them I just took a deep breath and deleted without even really checking over. I already knew what they were. I was actually trying to avoid even having to go back to one folder in particular. Too many memories… both good and bad. I kind of wish now that I hadn’t deleted them… because I wanted to remember all of the good things… But then I realized that reading them all over would have just reminded me of how bad things turned out in the end… :(
Oh well… they’re gone now. I’ll burn some more of the Furry art I’ve collected another day. If I can ever figure out how to make my damn thumbnails view work again. >.< It just stopped working one day when I had to uninstall my Corel Draw, because it kept on messing up on me and freezing and crap. Now I can’t view thumbnails anymore, and I don’t know how to get that option back… And so organizing my files is going to take me a looong time, because I’ll have to open each individual file on my computer just to see what the damn images are of. :/ Not looking forward to that, but oh well.
I should stop saving so much junk…
Current Mood: morose
Why not view the files in windows explorer? Just go to View -> As webpage and as you move over each file explorer will generate a preview of the image.

That's what I mean. :/ It USED to do that, but it's not anymore, and I don't know why. >.< My View status IS set to "view thumbnails" but for some reason they're just not showing up.

I'm just as bad about hanging onto things. I have emails from all of my exes, some that don't even work anymore, that I just can't bear to get rid of. I've had one email for pretty much all of the 6+ years I've had a computer and internet access.
*waves* i added you as a friend, i hope you don't mind..
saving stuff is all fine and good, if you have the space. in nyc its impossible to save anything, because space is VERY limited. I used to keep everything, but now i throw nearly everything out. There is no room, no room!

Hi Bramble!! Long time no see! ^^ I shall add you back as a Friend. :)
I'm thinking maybe I'll just get a separate drive.. easier to just copy everything over than saving it all to a dozen CDs. X.x
I don't know how techy you are..
but you can get an external drive enclosure.
You need a system with USB 2.0 or firewire.
You buy an internal IDE hard drive or use one that you have, and then a case for it, that turns the harddrive into a USB2.0 or firewire device. They cost about $30. Here is an example : http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=17-155-208&depa=0
its great for backing up data.
If you are looking for getting your thumbnails to show up again in Windows Exploder, all you need to do is click on View, Thumbnails. Unless Corel Draw has overwritten something serious, this should set things back to normal.
Every once in a while I go through my computer and delete things. Stuff that has piled up, videos I no longer watch, pictures I never look at, etc.

It already is set to View Thumbnails, but it's just not working for some reason. Corel Draw really started messing up on me, to the point where stuff kept on disappearing, and then finally I wasn't even able to shut down the program, so I had to just get rid of it from my computer all together. I'm guessing when I got rid of it, it somehow killed the View Thumbnails, although I have no idea why it would have done that, since the two programs have nothing to do with each other. X.x Maybe I'll call one of my brainy computer friends to come check it out.
I dunno if you remember my buddy Mike who came along on the Wonderland trip? He's a computer whiz. I think he tried to add you to his Friends list as brorjace. If you want, you can e-mail him at email@example.com
As for the two not having anything to do with each other, some programs create system folders in Windows Explorer that can't be deleted. For example, I have a "Logitech Webcam" folder. Perhaps Corel creates something that you can use to view your Corel images. *shrugs*
I hope you get it fixed.
try setting it to something other then the thumbnails view, and then re-open explorer and set it back to Thumbnails, that may or may not work, I'll see if I can find a way to mimic this tonight or tomorrow at work (tomorrow would be best since I have to show head office that I actually do work :P)

Don't erase stuff from your computer! Do what I did; Save a bunch of it on 80 million CDs until you forget where they are and end up loosing them, then just give in and buy a new HD to store your mountains apon mountains of stuff onto....then have your computer crash.

Well the great thing about having friends is that you can just keep creating more happy pleasant memories and then look back on them later on in life. You can't help that what's done is done, but as long as you've got friends who you care about and who care about you, then yeah it just means more memories.
Even though the conversations are no longer in your computer, at least, and at the risk of sounding hokey, they're in your head and in your heart.
Memories can never die :)
