Hi there, almost got me a heartattack this morning.
What happened???

Well, yesterdayevening I did write a 13 page letter to my sheepmembers to give them all the new rules etc. At last I had to put in something from the government I picked off the internet. I have to put that on disk cause my own pc doesn't have internet and while copying it upstairs my Word went bazurk, error error have to close down. I did save in between but not all the time so when I opened Word again I had lost 6 pages so it seemed.

Tried to restore them, but it didn't work. So I went to bed with quite a bad feeling. Overslept myself (woke up at 10 am) called my boss that I was taken the morning off and back to the computer.
And when I opened Word???? There it was again all of it, so I was very happy.

I needed some lines from another document and when I opened that???? All my directions (or what do you call them) were gone, just plain text in Times New Roman. So I opened more docs and they were all the same. All my sheepforms gone, my poetry: just plain text and no pics anymore. Thought I had lost everything I ever wrote.

Well my Hubby's hair went straight up cause of my yelling.

It took me two hours to discover what caused it.
When you open a file in Word down under you can choose the documenttype. Yesterday I had to choose 'restore text from any doc' when trying to restore that particular document and I didn't change it back to 'Worddocument'. I did now and everything was right again.

Ha Ha Ha, but this was a very happy girl who went to work this afternoon.

Stupid pc's

they can be hell sometimes.

Word of advice when it starts acting up again throw it out the window

You'll feel so much better

If your afraid of the dark, then why did you come?
