Lost Files

This is a horror to admit. Recently my poetry files simply vanished from my computer and I was shocked to find they weren't all backed up. I have the Chapbook and a lot of my oldest stuff. Of course, I have the Interboard Poetry contest winners....... but so much was lost. I would appreciate anything that any of you might have of mine.

Oh NO! What a nightmare.

I don;t think I have any anywhere. I am very web based, versus disk or paper.

What about at Critters and Poets Summit 2000? Did you post poems there?

Yes. Go here:

Not to give it away to the entire web world, the password is where we took a ferry to that begins with L.

Hi Judy,

Terrible news. I hope you manage to get some of them back. I think all I have of yours is the chapbook.

Might I suggest you look at http://www.dropbox.com. It's a free drop-dead easy, set-it-and-forget-it on-line backup system. I have my whole poetry folder backed up there (among other places).

Best,

Peter

What I think happened. I had my stuff in a folder, a separate hard drive and a CD. When I got my new computer...a long time back...they migrated all my files from old computer but somehow the poetry file didn't come over. Ernie took over my old computer and reformatted it. The external HD crashed. And I can't find the damn CD. How is that for an unlikely bit of luck?

Oh, Judy, what a shame! And I was so enjoying your beautiful poem, Broken Shells.
