the fun doesn't end when your data gets recovered and you fire up your photo program.
today i held my breath and opened iphoto to start importing the photos that i took during the hiatus and discovered that while the photos are all there, they lack the sorts of labels that i am accustomed to enjoying, such as the dates they were taken.
and there was a lot of video i shot before the crash. video takes up a LOT of room.
and some of it is garbage, but some of it is stuff i needed.
but you need to be able to look at it in order to determine which things are the ones you need.
and because of the panic of the crash, i needed to make sure i had things saved and because of a downloading glitch i had multiple copies of some of it.
it is taking time to review and delete the copies because i can't trust the labels. and i have to relabel the whole library. while i'm in there i'm doing a little housecleaning and throwing out pictures that on sober reflection i don't need anymore.
short version: i still have no photos to show you.
in other news, i made bread pudding today.
why? because for some reason cookie seems to think i should make pudding.
