Fandom is a stupid goddamn hobby

My fucking iMac screen has totally died, right when I have to finalize my auction vid (which my owner, killabeez, totally loved yay!) and make my premieres vid. I’d had trouble last week but thought I’d fixed it, only now it’s completely fried and I have to drag this behemoth up to the Apple store tomorrow. The past hour has been a comedy of errors with me trying to update older programs on my ancient computer and them refusing to update.

I was already feeling crappy enough. I haven’t been able to write at all outside of commentfic, and finally felt like I was making some progress on a completely different fic today (I now have four [WTF?] partially written stories because I can’t fucking write) and was in the right frame of mind for the emotionality of this story and able to churn out over 2,000 words today. So much for eking more out this week.

I don’t know who I want to kill more right now, Apple or myself. Now I have no idea if I will be able to meet the premieres deadline.

Oh, noes! I'm so sorry. I'm away for the next 5 days, but if there's anything I can do to help next week, say the word? Are your files on an external drive, by chance?

Boy, we are both having terrible weeks, aren't we? Hugs you and hugs Boo even harder. I hope that being with your folks, though, is at least a little restorative?

The big thing I'm worried about is that if they do a clean install, I will lose everything--a QT that works with my slightly older OS, the FCP you installed, and of course I hadn't backed up my recent purchase of AfterEffects because I forgot all about it when I DLed it, and I don't know if the programs are going to be re-downloadable, since I didn't know how to make copies of them. I know I shouldn't have let my panic attacks about all this make me unsafe, especially after that hard drive crash, but it's so overwhelming and confusing to me, backing up video and the programs and such, that I just didn't do it.

So I'm finding that by trying to use my older computer, I can't get certain Agent Carter files to work. And if they clean install, then I lose FCP and and all that stuff. I will need to finalize the vid for you--and I don't know if I'll be able to at this point make the Agent Carter vid for premieres, or any vid at all. I could bring the hard drive up to at least finalize your vid and do the color correction. I wouldn't want to expect you to come down here to reinstall FCP, especially after traveling.

I don't know. Right now I'm just constantly on the verge of crying because I'm so stupid and let myself get so overwhelmed by this stuff. And angry at Apple for the crappy computer.

Hiya, just checking in. Dave's out of town for a few days starting tomorrow, so if there's anything I can do to help, let me know? I'd be happy to have you up and see what we can do, if anything. I'm free Thursday after 3PM, and Friday pretty much any time.

Oh no! Stupid computers, always failing at exactly the wrong time. *hugs* I hope the Apple Geniuses are able to fix it quickly, and that things go a little more smoothly the rest of this week.

They've been pretty...negative about it. It's not making me feel hopeful.

Aw, computer, no. That sucks; sudden tech problems are immensely irritating!

Yeah. I think this will be the first time I've not had a vid in Premieres at VVC. I really hate that.

That's a bummer. :(

When a Mac decides to break, they always break big...
