Hey everyone.

I promise there has been a reason for the radio silence on my part for the last month or so. I've been having serious problems with my gaming computer (oh, will the humanity ever end) and it ended up with a clean install of a new operating system. Unfortunately, this means that I lost everything. I lost the entirety of the hood, all of Mars Valley (my quasi-BACC), my main hoods, and my downloads. I wasn't able to save anything. Understandably, I'm devastated, but determined to make the most of it; I definitely plan to reinstall my games and keep playing, and rebuild my downloads folder!

It may take me a while, but I'm still here and I'll definitely be around. If you don't follow me already, I recommend following me on tumblr for the time being, so you can see what I'm reblogging & downloading. Also, please give me a friend at dreamwidth. I'll still be crossposting everything here and checking LJ regularly, so no need to move - I just also use DW regularly for RP, so I'm very familiar with it!

I adore you all and I hope everyone is well.


(For those who are techy, what was wrong with my computer was I corrupted - somehow - my master boot record (mbr) and was unable to fix it because I didn't have my windows XP install disc. I attempted to use several other OS install discs and methods to repair or renew my MBR but it was impossible; the computer wouldn't even boot. This arose probably from having 2 partitions, one linux and one windows and then attempting to delete one ... oops!)

That's a huge bummer about losing everything! That seriously sucks. Glad you're still around. ♥

Just to confirm--your dw has the same name (boolpropbea)? Just kidding.

Yeah, I'm really bummed. :( Hopefully I can recover quickly.

And I'm not sure why LJ ate my link, but my dreamwidth is actually maxisbea (just for everyone else's reference, too)!

I'm so sorry to hear that. To lose all of your hoods especially, ugh, that really sucks. :/

Starting the downloads folder from zero can be fun, though, after you find everything you want from what you had. A chance of keep things neat and organized! It happened to me last month, but I thankfully managed to save my hoods.
Hope to see you simming again soon. <3

Yeah, I'm really bummed. I'm thinking about starting over with the sims that I have uploaded (at least those were saved).

I'm at a loss of where to start with my downloads but I still remember my favorite creators.Hopefully not too many of my favorite places have broken links, otherwise I'll have to post a ton of WCIFs ..I know some of my downloads won't be replaceable - some archives I had of stuff that other people gave me, etc. But I'll do my best!
Thanks, dear. <3

Oh no, that sounds terrible!
I do hope that there will be a light at the end of the tunnel for you though; clean install, perhaps new things we may see from you? :)

I also hope you are doing okay, aside from the computer troubles. I wish you well!
P.S. I added you on dreamwidth! I'm goldenrose there :)

Twas a very sad day for me. :(
But never fear, you will see new things from me soon, I promise! <3 Very soon!

Oh no, that's terrible to lose all the hoods and downloads!! Didn't you have backups? :o I'm glad you're not giving up even after all that. <3

I unfortunately didn't have any backups of anything that I could find - not even my CC! I've learned from this lesson. :(

.. and I actually just got my game reinstalled today, wooo.

I'm so sorry to hear that!!
But it can be exciting to start over, too! I kind of wish I could motivate myself to clean out my CC and start over again.

As inspiring as it is, starting from scratch is so daunting! There is just so much!
