My computer crashed! I've spent the whole day getting all my programmes back on and I've lost a lot. I had a problem a year ago but managed to pick up a lot of what wasn't backed up through other user accounts (stupidly I was the computer administrator, had only one CA and couldn't access my account). This time I couldn't get past DOS and in the end decided to run the system recovery. I'm too impatient to wait and get help. But it reminds me that I haven't established good backup habits still.
I think in one way it's not a bad thing to have an "empty" computer and start again with the new year.
So, no art at all - except for thinking about ideas! I've gone through my collage and believe I've enough to send away so I can move onto other media. For a few minutes I thought I couldn't part with one or two, but then reminded myself that I'd done them to send away, and that its good to move on. I think the process has given me some ideas for future works and I'm already taking one of them into paint.
