Blame this on both rotten luck and stupidity on my part. Right now I’m strapped for cash and still trying to find employment. Thing is, I REALLY wanted to get the Taken King add-on for Destiny. So what did I do? The dumbest thing ever. I tried downloading a code generator and got a virus on my Windows HDD. No matter how many times I ran AVG and tried to remove the unwanted stuff, Google Chrome still kept opening with a search page I didn’t want.
So what do I do? I re-install Windows 7 of course as it’s free to upgrade to Windows 10 until July. So I copy everything but my music to my Ubuntu (Linux) HDD accept for my music which I copied to my sisters external. After I re-installed Windows 7, the grub loader for my Linux got removed somehow. So I ended up grabbing the only other HDD I had from my RV and added it to my PC to install Linux on it. After that, I ended up having two Linux-based HDDs because it gave me the option to load from my original Linux-based HDD and realized that I didn’t use the loader for Windows 7 properly.
So I go to install Windows 7 again, but… I ended up deleting the data I had on my original Linux-based HDD. So… I lost everything.
Technically… I didn’t. As I said earlier, I copied my music to my sister’s external HDD. And on my old Dell laptop that I loaned mom, I still had copies of my videos and most of my other documents. So what I lost were the light novels I downloaded (Spice and Wolf and The Devil is a Part-timer) and everything I had for “Let’s Go Devil King!”. Luckily for me that I already posted most of the story on here and was only working on the next chapter. Sadly I lost my personal glossary I made for it as well. Even though I have it in my head, it was nice to have it on file so I could glance if I was having a brain fart.
So now I have to re-write the glossary and what I did have for chapter nine of “Let’s Go Devil King!”. And by the time most of you are reading this, I will be trying to upgrade my eventual re-installation of Windows 7 to Windows 10. Not to mention I got to re-program Ubuntu the way I had it before. From now on, I’m only using Windows for gaming, iTunes, and anything else I can’t do on Linux. Everything else is going to be through Ubuntu.
And last of all, no more doing stupid things that I know will go wrong five way ’till Sunday. I can’t believe that I’m supposed to be the tech guy of my house and I let all this happen? Still, I got my W2’s from when I worked at the Recycling Center and I’m waiting on my ones from Target. If possible, I will be getting another job before I get my tax return in. Either way, I’m going to be getting The Taken King the right way. I learned my lesson.
