The Technical Term is "Bollocks"

Just tried doing some tidying up on my phone by moving some files onto my laptop using that there memory card reader thing. Everything was going fine until I selected "Delete" on, what I thought, was an empty folder. Turns out it was the root folder. There's no "Recycle Bin" option on the memory card so that you can retrieve items that were moronically deleted. They're also not in the normal Recycle Bin. They are in fact lost. Much like Monty Pythons Parrot. They are no more. Ceased to exist. They are Ex Files.

Apparently, the Truth Is Out There. Probably along with my files.

Anyway, now that I've completely lost what I was going to do I'm going to leave it up to you as to what I post about next. You've got a choice of "DIY Weekend" or the words and videos of The Jamm gig that I went to last night.

Song Of The Week is another Kasabian track with Reason Is Treason. If you haven't heard it, make sure you give it a listen.

Poor guy, poor files.

I'd like to see a little more DIY and a little less music blogs.

What the hell - do both! Two different posts...
(I like that expression, "moronically deleted.")

As long as you haven't written anything new on to the memory card, then it is almost certain you'll be able to retrieve the files with an undelete program. You'd need to pay for it, but there are plenty of choices around.

The way the delete function works is that it deletes a pointer to where the file sits on the card, and then makes a note that the bit of the card can be used again. As long as you haven't written over the files, then the undelete program will work out where the pointers need to go and write new ones.

Both is good! I wanted to also know what you think of Belle and Sebastian...

Maybe you should dig deeper and find out the truth out there - post about the "Lord of the files"

PS. Poor lad, feel for ya.
