Hey everyone! Sorry for the broadcast pause, but I wanted to sit down this evening to write a quick entry to let everyone know that I survived the move all safe and sound. However!!!! I was all set to podcast from my brand new studio (new condo) and my Macbook sputtered and died on me. I just couldn’t seem to boot up past the initial blue start up screen and thus the panic started to set in. I try restarting it a few times and even walked away a couple of times praying it was just loading slowly, but no! It would seem that my hard drive decided to crash, just when i needed it the most. Figures doesn’t it? So i carted it over to the Macshop near the new studio/condo. The ever friendly Mac shop employees said they would do their best to recover my entire life’s work for the past 3 years and put it onto a new hard drive. So what choice did i really have, and so needless to say Tom walked way deeply stressed and kicking myself for not buying that backup desktop hardrive sooner.
Sooooo, to make a long story short….I got it back this evening and all the non-Mac programs are all gone. Fortunately, all my work like my documents, music, movies, and stuff survived but I’m going to have to sit down tonight and re-install everything else. Including the monstrous install and download of all the World of Warcraft patches….’sob’ ‘sob!” Therefore, i shall not be podcasting tonight for sure but be on the look out for episode 13 of the Tom in Thailand cast this weekend as I realize i’m long overdo. Thanks soooooooooooooo! much for the emails and voicemails as I’m definitely going to be making good use of them on the episode this weekend. Love you guys and keep your fingers crossed for me here. Things are finally sliding back into a bit of normalcy! Much love from Bangkok!
I know that I said it in my last podcast, but I honestly don’t think there is anything else i can think of at the moment more stressful than moving. However, I wanted to write a quick little entry for you guys while i’m sitting here at work, just so I don’t appear to have dropped out of sight for a couple of weeks…cause I just love you guys that much!
So, the partner and I have been moving carloads of stuff nightly for the past week and I’m amazed at the amount of stuff we still have yet to get moved. We’re packing all the bits and pieces into plastic bins and carting them over to the new place on a nightly basis and I can’t tell you how exhausted we are. I swear that it seems like we haven’t made a dent in the amount of stuff yet to move as the piles seem to be breeding when we leave the house. Isn’t it interesting how the piles of “krap” we accumulate as time goes by only reveals itself when you actually have to get it all packed up and relocated to a new place. However, I’ll quit bitching and tell you about the progress we’ve made thus far.
We, did get the air conditioners installed last Saturday but that wasn’t without a completely different set of problems that i’ll go into in my next podcast. We also went out last night and purchased a water heater for the bathroom as Thai bathrooms don’t come equipped with hot running water…strange I know! Tonight, I’ve got to go down to the Thai version of Ikea to look for some curtains for the new place cause I enjoy the prying eyes of nosy neighbors as much as the next guy. Then we have a truck coming around over the weekend to move all the big stuff like the sofa, bed, wardrobe, and fridge. Oy Vey!
Therefore, I promise to do my best to get a podcast out to you sweeties over the weekend, as I’ve got some really great audio comments from the listener feedback line I want to share with you guys. I’ve got some super sweet fellow podcasters and I can’t wait for you guys to hear what they had to share! Anyways, i suppose i better quit blogging at work and get back to it. Much love from Bangkok as always and I swear you will be hearing from Tom soon! Ciao!
