Hey Beth,

Just create more folders in Favorites, label them as necessary.

That would involve organizational skills, which my bad case of procrastination prevents me from implementing.

Wow Harold! You are really doing a good job! It really helps me since I lost my hard drive, I have to fill it up with my favorite stuff again! I really miss my favorites list in IE, that I think is what I miss the most....oh and all my passwords that were automatic, I forgot some and man is it hard to figure them out!

Does anyone know the name of the file that holds those passwords so I can back them up from time to time, and the favorites file? Even if I had old versions that would have been better than none! :mad:

Thanks again!

Laura, thats why you have floppies, zip drivers, and burner CD's or even an extra HD. Ya gota back up data. You might not think it's that important. till you lose it. I made it a point to have all 3. I back everything up, EVERYHING!

macbeth7
07-05-2002, 02:26 PM
Hi Laura,

I don't back mine up as often as i should, especially since I lost a bunch of stuff one time. Yeah, those files are kind of tricky to find. If you have a Mac, I can help you...don't know the PC locations off the top of my head though.

Beth

It also depends on the OS you're running. I hate to guess but,...
If you're running MS Windows...on the drive where Windows is installed...usually the path is C:\Windows\Favorites

Backup this directory and you will have a copy of your bookmarks.


One more thing I highly suggest...Go to the following link:
http://www.pricewatch.com/
Look under CD Recorders....you can get a CD burner for $37.00.
This will allow you to burn a CD of your Hard Drive or any other important files. You can even create a site with all your Art and then burn a CD for distribution, if that is of interest. Blank CD's are very cheap.

Oh...and most important...THANK YOU very much Laura for the compliments and your direction to WC!:clap: :clap: :clap:

Oh, I had almost 100% of everything off of my hard drive. My drive mysteriously died, it was horrible. My machine is only 5 months old. It is a custom built machine with some of the best equipment available on the market, my hard drive was a 7200rpm 60 gig 2 meg cache hard drive (I like speed hehe), it had been perfectly fine, but suddenly something ate it up. It is sorta suspicous because when the technician looked at it he couldn't believe how it happened, I used to build systems in the past, and I too was thrown for a loop. I am very careful about my system when it comes to protection, etc.... it physically ruined the hard drive. But anyway at least I got it fixed now and didn't lose much data at all, I was able to retrieve almost everything before it happened as I could tell it was going to and I had a little itty bitty window of opportunity to copy stuff. The only stuff I don't have is my links from the ISGB website (anyone got that page before they took it down? and can I PLEEEEEEASE have a copy of it?), my favorites file in IE (I had some of the neatest links to stuff like the lady that does the wire wrapping bracelets and bangles with lampwork beads Connie Fox, neat cool art sites on drawing nudes and portraits, cool sites with things for sale that are art related, etc..), and my folders of email in Outlook.

But overall I am a pretty happy camper, it at least cleaned off the junk from my hard drive...hehe, and am starting out new! That can be nice!

Thanks!
Laura

I too had mine custom bulit. instead of a 60 gig, I opt for 2 30's the 2'nd HD is for storage and back up. along with my 250 mb zip and my burner. I have lost far too much in the past. never again...

I also have a list of "How To" links but, I'm not sure if it would be proper or acceptable to post them. I know some will create articles here and, I wouldn't want to discourage that either.

Looking for your feedback on this before I leap.

Eesh, CD burners are that cheap now? Guess I should've waited a few years! ;) I remember paying $1500 or something for a 17" monitor too...just not patient enough...hehe. My problem is actually burning back-ups onto CDs. I have a whole stack of them here, but...

Harold, I don't think posting the "How To" links would discourage people from writing articles.

Beth

07-07-2002, 03:56 PM
$1500. for a 17 inch monitor? I have a 21 inch ViewSonic. I bought at a trade show for $450. And the retail on it was $1200.

macbeth7
07-07-2002, 04:00 PM
Richard, this was years & years ago...before 21" ones were even readily available. I have one of those now as well, but the 17" is still going strong...guess it was worth the $$! I'm just not patient enough to wait for the price to go down on electronics a lot of the time.

:D

Harold: Links to other articles are acceptable as long as they are not advertisements. We hate those, don't we. The thing about those is that we have a built in ad system here at WC! that helps keep this site going. We sure wish that someday the suppliers and other resource sites will see the benefit of advertising here on WC! If you hear of any, send them to the link marked Media Kit.

In the meantime, feel free to post your article links. As long as it doesn't get to be "spam" or wearysome, it will be okay. In other words... if someone said... "visit this site and sign up for my glass art classes that are only $200.00 per workshop" in almost every post they made, that would not be okay. That would not be using good manners, would it. LOL
