Hello my wonderful readers–
This is just a quick note to apologize for my absence. To make a long story short, I’ve had a horrible week technologically speaking. First, I was hit with a malware/virus that slipped by my anti-virus protection, and then I was duped by a phone scammer to whom I allowed them access to my computer. I believe they wiped out part of my personal files, and added more malware to my system. My husband (we’ll call him LMSGeekDad, an e-learning developer) and I have been frantically trying to fight this viral beast and figure out how to recover my files. We’ve been at it for a day and a half, and have still not gotten my laptop back to normal. I’m actually writing this whole post on my iPhone.
So, as you can guess, I’m rather distracted from the joys of tech comm and e-learning at the moment, just trying to revive my laptop as best as we can. That’s why there’s no postings from me right now (until now), and probably won’t be until this is fixed. My laptop has my life on it; I thought I had lost a decade’s worth of family photos until I was able to find my backup on an external drive, but other important files have been affected too.
I hope to be back in the swing of things soon. Please send good karma/ thoughts/prayers this way that I can get this fixed soon, and fixed properly.
Thanks for your continued support!
