Trying times last week
Slow on the uptake, a fair
share of irritants

Tears welled up. Warning
messages seen urging to
start back-up process

Problems with the hard
disk. A whiz kid worked on it
Installed CCleaner

Deleted hidden
temp files, cache and baggage
still lurking, unseen

9 gigs of ‘rubbish’
thrown out and done the back-up
Next, to format disk

Written for Chev’s CARPE DIEM #25 with prompt tears and Claudia's hosting at d'Verse's OpenLinkNights#67


  1. Very technical take on the prompt, well done!
    It's not worth weeping for computer problems.
    Hope everything is ok now.

  2. Computer failures really make us sad ... this is one thing we can't do without in modern world !!!

  3. ugh so you went through some computer issues...that stinks...i cant stand computer issues....sorry for all you lost...but glad you are back...

  4. Yup, good to have you back - no doubt leaner and hungrier!

  5. Comptuer issues suck
    Can cost a pretty buck
    Had my fair share
    Hate them with a passion at my lair

  6. Looks like this prompt was made for you :) Glad you're mended.

  7. all that technical talk! When I think I'm cleaning up my Mac, and I think I have deleted something important, it makes me cry.

  8. A unique and well crafted take on the prompt.

  9. Computer frustrations have brought me close to tears! Very original take on this prompt!

  10. Tears on computers... Oh good

  11. OMG -- we used the same image ... and I searched a while to find it!!! :)
