Weekend Without The Wife and Kids

So after #meetup2013 my wife and her mother take the kids to visit family this weekend, so:

 

1. Make plans to reinstall 2011 on server after getting off work much earlier than usual

2. Create storage 2nd storage pool on desktop to sync movie rips

3. While doing so notice big stack of drives wonder which ones are good

4. Insert 1.5TB drive in external dock

5. Wipe and format

6. Realize you just formatted the 1.5TB drive in your data storage pool, not the one in the dock

7. Acknowledge you are an idiot

8. Try to restore drive from within dashboard

9. System folder redirects don't work and you make it worse instead of better

10. Realize you should have done it from USB key at boot

11. Refer to #7

12. Realize Google Drive doesn't see original folder and deletes everything online, including 2GB of scanned documents

13. Realize Bitcasa doesn't see original folder and things are gone. 

14. Later realize you can go back in time on the Bitcasa website and it's all there.

15. Think it's a good idea to update your hackintosh while you're at it, what else could go wrong, now sound doesn't work

16. Get sound working the next day

17. Print lists of installed programs and prepare to install 8.1 because you have so totally screwed up your system it's not worth it.

18. Refer to #7 again

19. Realize you probably won't have time to do server reinstall because you are an idiot.

Forces me to do the upgrade to 8.1 with a nice fresh install. Wasn't leaving the office all weekend anyway.

 

8.1 installed quickly and now to decide which programs I actually need to reinstall anyway.

 

Will obviously not use Google Drive for my irreplaceable scanned documents again.

Don't worry about your Google Drive scanned documents Awraynor you can get them back. 

 

Call you local NSA office and ask if you can get a copy from them.

Belarc can do this.

I used Belarc and CCleaner to make a list.

So the journey begins. Also realized I didn't

need a lot of them. 

 

And don't forget to uninstall PaperPort first,

because of their Draconian activation schema.

 

And SkyDrive still called SkyDrive, interesting.
