BSOD

Last night, I decided to get out my old computer, which has all of my photos from before 2009.  There are a couple thousand pictures on that laptop, including those from my climb of Mt. Fuji, Oyama, and Takaosan, as well as from Odawara, Atami, lots from Kamakura, Yokohama, and Tokyo.  And then there’s the early train station neighbourhood exploration.  Well, the computer started up okay, and I went into the folders for the photos.  I was planning to transfer them all to my current computer.  However, as I was checking something about memory, I got a BSOD, a Blue Screen of Death.  What happened?  I’ve had BSODs before from using too much memory, but this was different.  This time, \WINDOWS\system32\config\SYSTEM is corrupt.  To fix it, I could use a Windows XP CD, which my computer didn’t come with.  I don’t have one.  The other option is to pull out my hard drive and use it as an external drive.  I think that’s what I’m going to have to do to save my photos.  Hopefully, it’ll be successful.  I don’t know when I’ll be doing it, though.  This is just very frustrating.

The state of the blog address

Today, I bought a memory card reader for my computer so I can transfer pictures from my camera to my computer.  My old Sony Vaio could read Memory Sticks, my new Toshiba Satellite reads SD cards.  My camera uses Memory Sticks.  Well, that’s one problem solved.  Next, I need to transfer all of my pictures to my new computer.  At the moment, I can only upload pictures to the blog from my old computer, which I will continue to do until I have the pictures transfered.  I have a LAN cable, so I guess I’ll figure that out sometime soon.

Anyway, coming very soon are pictures and videos from Furusato Matsuri Tokyo and the Grand Sumo Tournament.  Then I’ll finally get to work on Sankeien and my big backlog of photos.

New computer!

I’m on my way home now from Akihabara, where I bought a new laptop computer. It’s a Toshiba with Windows 7, 16″ screen, 500GB hard drive, 4GB RAM, blu-ray/dvd drive, 2.20 GHz Core 2 duo processor and more. Best of all, I got a big discount!
