ARGH!

So, we have a new desktop as our laptop has basically gone to the shitter. And the desktop has Vista, of course. Well, when I upload my photos from my camera it was automatically using Adobe Photoshop to load them. I thought nothing of it and just made sure I had them going to the correct file location. Well, last evening I discovered that all the video I had taken over the last month or so is gone. As in, never copied over from the camera. Apparently, because I have Photoshop Elements and not the Premiere edition it doesn't handle the video files. And I of course, never checked it and was deleting the files off my camera after I'd copy them to the external hard drive.

The video I took of the kids at the park yesterday is the one that made me lose it. I cried. Yep, I cried.

Jason is working on it, but there seems to be some glitches. I have always used Kodak software that came with my camera, but Vista isn't liking it too well. Even with the downloaded install on their website.

So for now, I need to remember not to delete video files. ARGH!!

Windows Vista is the worst thing to come along sine Windows ME. Sucks that Microsoft has you by the nuts. I suggest you get a computer loaded with Linux and install all the open source software equivelant to MS Office, email, virus protection, etc. Try Mozilla Foxfire for an internet browser or Mozilla Thunderbird for an email application. You won't be dissapointed.
