This sucks so much it should be hanging around a glory hole or something.  
The good thing is that I have a back up of my computer, at least there's that. Only, that's the only good thing.

The bad thing is that my computer froze yesterday and I wasn't able to turn it back on. I took it to the tech guy today and he said, "don't worry," only that was followed with, "I'll see what I can do." Thanks, dude. I called him again, because of course I'm being a pest about this, and he said he'll call me back to tell me what's wrong and how long it'll take to fix it, so whatever. >.<

The worst thing is OMG I might--I might have some private stuff on my desktop, never mind in folders all over it, I had one that I wouldn't like people to just see, and I suppose he's going to. Sighs.

Do you think tech guys are like priests? That they have keep confidentiality or something? Wouldn't that be nice.

So now I'm on my phone and writing this took me about an hour. I'm not kidding.

Not going to be around much in the next couple of days, yeah, I know, you are all ~whatever~ but how am I going to survive??? *clings*

And omg the stuff in my computer!! *dies of embarrassment*


*clings some more*

Ugh! Oh no :(

Just forget about the private stuff as much as possible. You don't know this guy, right? He's not someone you have to see again? EVERYONE has embarrassing stuff on their computer. This guy is not going to care. He's a techy person, he knows his way round the internet, he's seen ~stuff. He doesn't care about your stuff.

we sacrificed goats to the god of rimming, and you came back to us! Now stay, stay! Don't leave us again!
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on August 28th, 2014 08:08 pm (UTC)
I hope I won't have to see him again after this! ^^

The funny thing, first I freaked out about losing anything and then it occurred to me to maybe be embarrassed lol even the name of that folder is.... Well, I get creative with names, you see.

And did I see a giant tongue at your post?? I am so touched by the arse sacrifices to the god of rimming. <3 maybe it'll get fixed by next week.
I'm really trying with my phone. I'm so bad at thumb typing ,

Don't leave me birds!

I have fanfiction on paper lying around all over my room.

If I dropped dead tomorrow, people will see what I read. LOL

There should be a service that if something happens to you someone comes and clean up your computer/web history and stuff, just to one can rest in peace lol

Oh no:( hope it'll be a quick repair! And like mab said, there's no 'whatever' about it! We all miss you already!!
As for the embarrassing stuff; he's probably seen all kinds of stuff in his line of work.
Come back to us soon! *hugs tight*
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on August 28th, 2014 08:18 pm (UTC)
That's my only comfort, he's probably seen worst. Well. Maybe.

*hugs and don't let go*

Aw, we'll miss you until you come back!

Okay, to make you feel better about having embarrassing stuff on your computer, I will tell you an embarrassing computer story of my own.

I have a Mac, and I was having issues with it being super slow last year, so while I was home I took it into the Apple store, and because my dad wasn't doing anything he offered to come along with me. So we're there, and the Apple guy asks me what I usually have running on it when it grinds to a halt, and I said, oh, just the internet and Word and my email. And he asks me to go ahead and open all that up so he can try to recreate the problem.

I'd forgotten that Word on my computer does this thing where if it's closed and then reopened, it automatically opens every document I've accessed since the last time I hit the "clear recent" button. (You see where this is going, don't you?) And since I have a tendency to skip through many different things as I write and also to not clear my history very often, when it finally loaded to my utter horror it was just a FLOOD OF PORN as doc after doc after doc after doc of smutty Harry/Draco fic popped open. In a panic, I alt+tab over to the next window.... the internet, which saved my tabs and HELLO LJ AND MORE PORN. And still panicking, I skipped to my email which is all COMMENTS ABOUT PORN I WROTE. And it's all happening in front of the poor Apple employee and my father and I have never wished so hard for the ground to open up and swallow me whole. We... don't talk about that day very often. My only consolation is that my father's never read Harry Potter or seen the movies so he didn't know that it was porn about children's book characters. XD

So, yes. I survived, you'll survive too. But really, I'm pretty sure tech support guys are not allowed to just go poking through folders at random, so I bet it'll be fine. And just think, I'm sure so many people have embarrassing stuff on their computers, I bet they're just used to it and won't think anything of it even if they do see something. ::squishes you::
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on August 28th, 2014 08:22 pm (UTC)
I admit that does make me feel better XD

The thing is, I have this folder on my desktop and there's no way he's not going to get curious. Lol like, really! But now I can think 'at least my dad isn't seeing this' lol

*hugs* and I can always act fresh about it, like, what you didn't know about that sort of thing? All my friends do! Who's weird now? And stuff lol

Don't worry! My husband is a nerd of the worst kind and he said, tech guys don't go into your private stuff because the data they need is in other folders and they really don't have the time to sniff through your files. They are like hunters, only focused on bringing down the deer (virus, bug, whatever). -- So, I hope that helped :-)! We'll miss you like crazy!!! (whatevers - tsk, so less you think of us, tsktsktsk!!!)
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on August 28th, 2014 08:26 pm (UTC)
HOPE! You give me hope. :D yeah, it's probably like that, he won't peek. ^^

*hugs tight* I miss you! It's been one day and I'm so sad and lonely I can't be here proper, :((

Yes, bebé, we really miss you! It's not the same without you commenting, reccing and spreading love for the boys. <3

I'm sure tech guy isn't interested in your folders, no matter if they contain porn or no porn. As Canda said it's all about hunting the problem down. But I do hope your computer AND all data survive the ordeal.


welcome to villa cariño!capitu on August 28th, 2014 08:55 pm (UTC)
You and Canda are probably right. I mean, I know you are, I'm just paranoid ^^

I hope it's easily fixed, whatever it is. *hugs* and that I don't lose anything. God.

Awww, bb..... I hate computer stuff/problems....

Blah. I will keep my fingers crossed that everything works

out o.k. for you. *glomps*
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on August 28th, 2014 08:58 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I hope not to lose anything, :((

Also, all the tech guys I have known are, indeed, like priests. LOL. What happens in between your computer and your tech guy, stays between your computer and your tech guy. I used to have blatant slash as my desktop background. There was no avoiding it. Nobody ever said a word. Plus, yeah, the stories. No actual porn, though, so there's that. \o/

Everybody already knows you love rimming, C. Just sayin'.

~in fic

I hope he works fast!

welcome to villa cariño!capitu on August 28th, 2014 09:57 pm (UTC)
Right??? I mean, there's a special connection between you and the guy who fixes your computer. Lol they are heroes!! Or ~something. ^^

Yeah, the rimming. God! I need to add that to my info page lol

rabbit_says on August 28th, 2014 09:15 pm (UTC)
Don't worry about it. I'm a tech gal and we don't look at user's stuff. It would be very unprofessional to go snooping (if you did you wouldn't tell anyone!).

Computer stuff is such a pain...I feel for ya!
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on August 28th, 2014 10:03 pm (UTC)
This is what I believe. All jokes aside, it's almost like going through your drawers if you're fixing the furniture. Well, something like that. I know most probably don't even care, one just can't help to feel self conscious about it though. :)

writcraftwritcraft on August 28th, 2014 10:36 pm (UTC)
Missing you already! *Clings, steals and keeps* Computer problems are the worst, I feel your pain. If embarrassing story sharing helps, I had a tech guy who came and rescued all of the stuff I lost after a virus attack and he was like "Do these look like all of your pictures?"

Me: "Yes, it looks about...okay...stop scrolling"

He stopped on a pretty explicit piece of Snarry fanart but had the decency just to give me the invoice without any side-eyeing at all :P

Oh, there was also the time I took my laptop into the store to get it fixed and while the tech team were transferring data from my old laptop to my new one, my screen saver began playing on a good third of the screens in the shop. My screen saver was full of pictures of Pacey from Dawson's Creek....PACEY. DAWSON'S CREEK. That ruined my street cred like whoah :DDDD

Come back soon!! *hugs*

kedavranoxkedavranox on August 28th, 2014 11:29 pm (UTC)
Hope you'll be back soon!!

Last time my computer had a meltdown, I had naked pics of myself on my pc because I was tracking my wieghtloss.

That was... an experience.


In other words, I feel you. ♥
