I don’t know how it happened. Last night our computer (we have a MacBook) was having trouble shutting down. I had to force quit a few applications and when I woke up this morning I realized that I had closed the laptop before it had completely turned off. Instead of going to sleep like it should have, it seemed to still be on (fan going and power light on). I opened it, turned it off, turned it on again, and realized that it had pretty much forgotten me. My account still exists, but everything has been set back to default status. The dock, wallpaper, screen saver, Mail, hot corners, etc. Micah’s account is intact. I can set everything up the way I want it, no problem. It’ll just take a little bit of time. But it means that I lost the folders in my mailbox (most of which were related to various stories I’ve been working on and still hope to pitch) as well as my bookmarks. The bookmarks aren’t really a big deal, but the mailbox thing sort of is. The main thing is, how did this happen and what can we do about it?
