Confessions & Grief

Sun Aug 26, 2012, 3:11 PM
So...

Hiashi the Laptop is dead.

Dead.

I... God, that's still sinking in. Dead.

I spilled cola on him. It's my fault. I killed him. He was loyal, long-serving and valued. And I killed him.

I spent a long time crying.

I take some solace in the fact that his hard-drive is still okay. His soul lives though the body decays.  It still hits quite hard to know I don't have access to years' worth of work and research but it's not completely gone. Because I'm an idiot, I'd only backed-up a fraction of what's one there.  

I looked up online how to get the old hard-drive's contents onto the new one but it was very confusing and eventually I'd read so many different instructions that I couldn't understand anything anymore. I'll have to look into getting someone else to do it but work is sucking everything out of me right now - and is about to get worse - so I just don't have the time or energy to do it now.

I got most of the music back because it's on iTunes as 'purchased' but there's about a third of the old library that came from CDs or other sources that I can't get back straight away.  Going through all the CDs I have left is time-consuming and my room starts to look like it did back in the 90s. It's quite painful when I'm going through the tunes and start looking for one track or other that I realise isn't there anymore. It will be back one day but not yet. Not yet.

But, yes, I do have a new Macbook named Neji. I mean, my entire technology-naming theme was the Hyuuga family so it looked kind of weird that nothing was called Neji.  That's because the car keys used to be on a Neji keychain so they were Neji. But now those keys are on an owl keychain so freeing up the name again.

As a side note, I find this situation parallels actual Naruto-verse Neji. I think Neji puts a lot of pressure on himself to live up to his father, at least in his uncle's eyes. Which he's perfectly capable of in regards to shinobi life, but in other ways it's very difficult if not impossible. So Laptop Neji takes over from someone he can easily surpass yet never replace. Never mind that the old laptop was named after his uncle to begin with, his father Hizashi is actually a USB drive It shows I spend far too much time thinking about fandoms and am crazy enough to name my technology.

I am curious, though, why my laptops are male. The tablet is Hinata and the iPod is Hanabi but I can't think of any computer as female, as many people do about cars or boats or other shit. Urban-Geist named her laptop Wilhelm and I named my phone Loki (which nobody saw coming), so what is the deciding factor in what makes an inanimate object male or female since English lacks genders with regards to nouns.  Thoughts?

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! ♥
