Messed Up

A few ticks away from Halloween, my year-old laptop met its untimely demise. With no fanfare. It simply jumbled its screencolors, formed a crazy rainbow and then whizzed off to the kingdom of the dead. Any effort to resuscitate, at least from my untrained hand, proved futile.

The painful part is, it brought to its cold tomb, the myriad files I have reserved and even readied, for posts in this blog. The loss dumbfounded and startled me and I am now cracking my head for clues as to where to start.

Was the unceremonious farewell of a yet healthy and springy computer, an omen of things a-coming?

Just about two weeks from now, this blog will turn two years old. Am I being propped-up for the eventual farewell? Maybe, because sad as it may be, I do am now scribbling what could be my last post.

The Gasoline Dude said...

Last post? Why? Iinom na lang natin 'yan Parekoy. Maybe it's time for you to buy a new one.

Maalala ko pala, lapit na din berday ng blog ko. = P

totomai said...

come on man, dont "kill" this blog of yours. :-)

congrats on your new laptop by the way. it only means na more post to come and more pics to share :-)

nice meeting you again last weekend. haha. as usual may meeting ka na naman

KRIS JASPER said...

HEY! Just because your lappie broke, that doesnt mean you also have to shut down your site.

NOOOOOOOooooooooooo!!!!!!

From what you have said, it seems like only the mother board or the OS fizzled out. You can still recover your files. It's still in your hard drive and you can still access it. Go to any comp. tech you know and ask him to recover it for you. He'll know what to do.

r-yo said...

to all of the above (he he): truth is, i've been to have the "murder" revealed on the very birthday of this blog. but the lappie pre-empted me. naging anti-climactic tuloy. :-(

pards,sa taon nagdaan marami kang napasaya at marami akong natutunan at natagpuan dito.hope na di mawala ang isa sa interesting blog nato.

Abaniko said...

I thought you were only joking when you told me you plan to stop from blogging and write about it on the 2nd anniv of your blog. Totoo pala ang plano talaga.

Sige, bet tayo. You can't abandon blogging for good. You may delete this site but after a while, I'm sure you'll create a new one to write and post pictures in. Ipusta ko pa ang Macbook ko. Hehe.

Yakang-yaka mong bumili ng laptop. Go, buy a really good one.

ScIoN said...

sus, drama! hehehe

the donG said...

then it's time to buy for a newer one! yihaa!

Gina said...

NANU KA DIDA?????

Don't you dare close your blog for good!!

Balitaw, ayaw gadman. If you must take a blogging break for a while, then you should. Give it another month or so, and if you still feel like closing this site for good , then maybe, you really have lost the interest for it. (hopefully not.)

the spool artist said...

oh noo.... baka salvagable pa rin yung files mo from the hard drive... it simply is a sign... that you need to buy a macbook air! hehehe...

Nicely said...

hey! don't leave this blog just because of the loss of your lappy toppy. buy a new one... it's worth more than money. ayokong ma-miss kita.

realscore said...

kuya reo, wag naman...huhu..

RIP na lang sa laptop mo...i'm sure mas maganda pa ang mabibili mo after that loss...

r-yo said...

ever: interesting talaga ha? he he. salamat po sa pagtangkilik.

r-yo said...

abaniko: i was serious when i told you about quitting, a few months back. medyo naadik na kasi ako masyado sa blogging at surfing and i guess i need to go to rehab. :-)

r-yo said...

scion: drama ka dyan. ayusin nyo kasi laptop ko! :-(

r-yo said...

dong: sasayaw at kakanta muna ako dito para makaipon ng pambili ng laptop. pero mukhang aabutin ako ng isang taon sa papiso-pisong abuloy, bweheheh

r-yo said...

Gina: Baga wara na man ak creative juices! he he. Bahala na si Batman.

r-yo said...

spool: i really wish to get the macbook air. pero di kaya ng powers ko. :-)

r-yo said...

realscore: manabba-tabba ako dulo pammalli. :-)

Turismoboi said...

i have the same prob

Sidney said...

Good thing... you can now buy yourself a brand new notebook for your second anniversary !

realscore said...

hehehe...sana lang talaga di to magclose... kasi sobrang sayang!

MakMak said...

Naman. :)
Don't see it as a bad omen. Think of it as a valid excuse to buy yourself a new one.

And don't kill the blog. You'll regret it. I don't mean for it to sound like a threat (thought it does haha). You know what I mean. :P

r-yo said...

turismo: laptop problem too? nagkalat na nga yata ang virus. :-)

r-yo said...

sidney: hmm. that's a nice idea. :-)

r-yo said...

makmak: baka nga magpost na ako uli, if only because of your threat. bodily harm ba yun? :-)

xxxborgexxx said...

c'mon man don't make it a reason to stop writing a blog.

the donG said...

hahaha... kaya yan.

Ross Delantar said...

My condolences to your old laptop...

But hey, gives you all the reason to treat yourself to a new one!

I hope you get back here soon!

carlotta said...

medyo late nako pero agree ako sa lahat ng mga sinabi ng mga naunang nag-comment sakin, good reason yan para makabili ng bagong laptop hehehe. =)

mami-miss ko rin tong blog mo pag nagsign-off ka, isa ka sa mga nauna kong blog friends. hava break if u must pero wag ka aalis *sniff sniff*

nagdrama ba daw?! :D

fye said...

Lawstude said...

huwatttt??? say it isn't so panyero.

gibbs cadiz said...

you have 33 comments on this entry. i can hardly get 5 on (what i think is) a good post over at my blog. and you're quitting blogging? susguinuu, magbakasyon ka muna--but don't you dare NOT come back. :)

r-yo said...

borge: he he. i actually am looking for a reason that would at least sound valid. :-)

r-yo said...

dong: sama pa rin ako pag me fotog EB dyan sa December. kahit ba feeling lang ako, he he.

r-yo said...

ross: uy! one of my very first bloglinks! musta na? he he.

r-yo said...

r-yo said...

fye: Ei! so you're back?! ayan me substitute na ko. he he. parang basketball. ikaw muna papasok, ako naman lalabas. :-)

r-yo said...

bulitas said...

new laptop is the answer!
just keep blogging sir.
i have always been fascinated in japan and reading your entries makes me save money and plan my trip there someday.

as for your lost files, do you think your hd was damaged as well? if not, ou can have it checked and have your files retrieved.

all the best!

Abou said...

pahinga lang ata kailangan mo from blogging. antay ka namin

Gypsy said...

Nooooooo!! I think the numerous comments speak for themselves. We can let you pause for a moment of (blog) silence for the demise of your laptop..makiramay pa kami, but don't let your blog follow your laptop to cyberheaven!

acey said...

:( we'll miss you and your stories...

r-yo said...

bulitas: thanks! i didn't know you were reading me. he he

r-yo said...

abou: oo nga e no? parang ikaw. medyo matagal din nagpahinga.

r-yo said...

gypsy: am still trying to muster the energy to restart. am on rehab. he he

r-yo said...

acey: thanks for being a constant visitor. :-)

Musicero said...

That's a really sad experience to just lose a lot of stuff in an instant, not even a clue. But I myself would never give up my blog because I lost my stuff, I'd buy a new laptop. People won't like it if you just disappeared. -__-

kawawa naman yung laptop hehe
