The way I figure it, the data is about the only thing that requires frequent backup; since I hope to be able to process that data on my other machines when the main machine's disk fails. In the old days ( back in 1995), this was referred to as a disaster recovery plan and I had the 'pleasure' of participating with such planning with an organization that was housed in the North tower of the World Trade Center in NYC.
Yeah, data is all I am interested in backing up. I either have the disks or I can download the software. Receipts for software are data.

Anytime I need to backup, my son runs a virus scan and spy-ware check first. Sure enough he found a couple of viruses the last time. The viruses weren't a problem in and of themselves. But if they went with the backup, and I needed later to use the backup, the viruses would have became active and destroyed the files. Sure was a surprise to me.

Today we both had the day off together. I was determined to get out of the house, so we made an impromptu trip to Wilmington NC, beautiful day with very low humidity. We went to the arboretum, which would have been peaceful if there wasn't a wedding going on, and a DJ playing really bad music didn't help (play that funky music white boy, brick house, LOL). It was beautiful anyway. We went to a great little bakery that we discovered a couple years ago, and then walked the historic district.

Beautiful day, glad we got out of the house!

Sounds like a fun day. It sounds like something we would do some afternoon in Omaha.

What am I doing? Hmmm...I'm wrapping up what has been one of the worst weeks of my life. As you know, my boss is out with surgeries and I am running the office in her absence, one more week and she will be back.

Last Sunday Shrek, "just don't feel good, stomach feels icky." Blood sugars were excellent, not running a fever, actually felt cool to the touch. But he was able to eat. Monday morning he felt a bit worse, but again, everything was good and he wasn't having any pain. At 10 AM I get a call from him asking to be taken to the ER. 6 hours later he was being wheeled into the OR for an appendectomy.

Three hours later he was still in surgery...his appendix had burst and he had to have a foot of his large intestine removed. He spent two days in the ICU and as soon as they moved him to the surgical floor, he became completely confused and was pulling all his tubes out, because the TV told him too and the cats in the picture kept staring at him...it was a picture of a field of daisies. Friday, he was mostly back to his right mind.

He will be discharged tomorrow, he's ambulatory, antibiotics are done, but he still has a big open wound that they do not want to suture in case there is still some infection, so he has a vacuum wound closure system that is changed every three days. Shrek will be going to my facility, so he won't be calling me at work telling me he can't find this or that, etc. He'll be at work so I can keep an eye on him and know he is still getting first class care.

I almost lost the old fart, friends! Much as I complain about him...I sure would miss not having him around.

So...that was my week, how is yours going?

OMG, PF, and you didn't tell us until NOW? I am glad to here he is on the mend, but what an ordeal! And, it is great that he can go to your facility--some of your co-workers can help keep him in line and keep you from smothering him with a pillow...HUGS!

Good lord that makes my week look like paradise, thanks for the perspective, at least something good came out if it!

Glad that he's on the mend and can recover where you can be close to him and you won't have to worry about him!

Thanks CWS! I've been at work and the hospital for the past week...maybe 4 - 5 hours at home at a time and then back into the fray. Also been a total wreck and wanted anytime here at DC to be relaxing, not reliving each day.

I have to worry about him having more nurses to chase... Thanks, Bakechef!

I am just so thrilled that he will be at your facility! What a good way to keep track of Shrek AND the nurses!

Seriously, I can't believe it worked out so well. Hope you both can get some much deserved rest and peace.
