Terminal Stupidity

Some days you’re the windshield;
Some days you’re the bug.

I decided to customize my email program. I have incredimail and I like it very much. I use it to consolidate several different email addresses. I went into the program the other day to delete an obsolete address I haven’t used in several months — and I accidently deleted the entire program.

I shreiked. I jumped up and down. I said words my sister, Caryl, would not approve. Then I attempted to restore the lost info. It pretty much worked — except all of my history is gone. All of my saved mail is gone. All of my email addresses are gone.

If you want to hear from me, I’d suggest you send me an email so I can replace your address.

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. oh my!! I am afraid your stupidity is inherited!! I did the same thing (without the words I WOULD NOT care to hear) but live in the same part of the country as my nephew-in-law that has the knowledge to retreive that which is delete so I fared better than you. All was back to normal by afternoon. I am sorry I could not give you the same. BUT MOVE HOME AND THE OUTCOME WOULD BE DIFFERENT!! Love, C

  2. Wow, Quilly-Sister, I can just see you jumping up and down…I would be doing it, too. But at my age, I’ve pretty much learned this phrase that helps me through most things…..”oh, well”. LOL
