So I know that I should back up more often but I ran a full backup using Norton 360 only a month ago. or so I thought.

I finally got a "working" machine here but all of my data files were corrupted from Norton's backup. I cannot read any of the picture files, my iTunes library is non-existant (and yes this was backed up and restored) even my Quicken file is corrupted to the point where Quicken tells me that it cannot read the file.

Any ideas out there from any of you tech savvy folks that could point a guy in the right direction?
I've never used Norton products before. Where does it write the backup, CD? Feel free to PM me with details and I can see if I can help.

Congratulations! (On the anniversary and the fart cannon. Both awesome achievements )

Hey guys. I've been away for a variety of reasons, most recently a brief hospital stay (Boo!) followed almost immediately by a WDW trip (Yay!). Doing fine, although I have more Dr.'s appointments than I can count for followup.

I see everyone has been busy...

My wife and I will be down there the 11th-15th for our anniversary trip, and to catch the end of Food and Wine.

Been wondering if I passed you going the other way on Saturday. I miss sittin around drinking my morning coffee on the Balcony!
I would say there is a good chance that we passed. Was your trip home bumper to bumper? This week I think that the crowds are down because a lot of schools have started back..It is proving to be a good choice of when to go....where did you guys stay? Eat anywhere good? We have done Burro Loco, Thorny's, and California Pizza so far. Might drive up to Calabash and eat at Ella's this evneing.

I'm assuming you're partial to the original, but how different (aside from the outside) are the attractions on the inside? Or did Disney copy clone one to the other?
I was playing around on YouTube through the Wii the other night and was playing various Disney content to amuse the boy when I stumbled onto the DL Christmas overlays on Small World, we are getting hosed in FL!

Haven't read those yet but the Peter Pan ones by Ridley Pearson and Dave Barry are very good!

In best Gru voice: "I said DART gun!"

I had a trip from hell in Walmart last year, one of those ones where the same woman and her three uncontrollable kids were blocking every damn aisle I went down. I finally skip an aisle, wait until they are near the end of the previous aisle, carpet bomb the aisle the are about to go into, then duck around the corner. There was about a 10 second delay then I hear one of them yell "OOOOOOOO STINKEY!!!!" and another starts crying that she wants to leave. DW walks up from another direction when she hears the kid yell and says "You caused this didn't you?", must have been the grin on my face that gave it away.

You see...It's this information that really makes this thread worthwhile. I can't express the level of gratitude I feel at this moment. Honest...I've got no pucker string...so to speak.
