Quote from: mamselle on January 13, 2020, 04:25:06 PMThank goodness, my little blue XHDD came through for me with the files I needed to a) write an abstract due Wednesday, and b) get materials together for two other upcoming events. Its tiny plug input had become jammed, and then broken off on the plug, but it was clear the files on it were all intact.It was possible to hold the plug into contact with the internal connector, with one hand, while clicking and swiping files into the open folder where they needed to go on the other. My first target was the files for the abstract--a complicated Ppt I'd done in the spring, and hadn't backed up anywhere yet when the connector became compromised in July.Then I pushed my luck and tried for a few more needed files I'd done then. I was able to get most of those before it started squeaking and flashing....and then it shut down and became harder to revive.There are a couple more things still needed, but I can wait to try to pull those later. I really did not want to (nor did I think I could) re-create the 50-slide set of visual prompts I used for the paper I gave on the topic last spring. VERY, very glad I don't have to. Now...I just have to write the abstract. M.

Quote from: AmLitHist on February 21, 2020, 09:00:48 AMALHS and I started on Weight Watchers about 3 weeks ago. We've both lost about 20 pounds so far--and can both stand to lose a good deal more. I know it won't keep coming off this fast, and that's OK; I have no plans of becoming slim and svelte at my age. Rather, I just want to stop gaining (as I had been in December and January) and to get my blood sugar numbers down. Bonus: I can already fit back into clothes that had been tight, and with room left over. I'm particularly happy with myself, since my mobility is pretty limited and exercising to any serious degree is currently off the table.
