Blame this on both rotten luck and stupidity on my part. Right now I’m strapped for cash and still trying to find employment. Thing is, I REALLY wanted to get the Taken King add-on for Destiny. So what did I do? The dumbest thing ever. I tried downloading a code generator and got a virus on my Windows HDD. No matter how many times I ran AVG and tried to remove the unwanted stuff, Google Chrome still kept opening with a search page I didn’t want.

So what do I do? I re-install Windows 7 of course as it’s free to upgrade to Windows 10 until July. So I copy everything but my music to my Ubuntu (Linux) HDD accept for my music which I copied to my sisters external. After I re-installed Windows 7, the grub loader for my Linux got removed somehow. So I ended up grabbing the only other HDD I had from my RV and added it to my PC to install Linux on it. After that, I ended up having two Linux-based HDDs because it gave me the option to load from my original Linux-based HDD and realized that I didn’t use the loader for Windows 7 properly.

So I go to install Windows 7 again, but… I ended up deleting the data I had on my original Linux-based HDD. So… I lost everything.

Technically… I didn’t. As I said earlier, I copied my music to my sister’s external HDD. And on my old Dell laptop that I loaned mom, I still had copies of my videos and most of my other documents. So what I lost were the light novels I downloaded (Spice and Wolf and The Devil is a Part-timer) and everything I had for “Let’s Go Devil King!”. Luckily for me that I already posted most of the story on WordPress and was only working on the next chapter. Sadly I lost my personal glossary I made for it as well. Even though I have it in my head, it was nice to have it on file so I could glance if I was having a brain fart.

So now I have to re-write the glossary and what I did have for chapter nine of “Let’s Go Devil King!”. And by the time most of you are reading this, I will be trying to upgrade my eventual re-installation of Windows 7 to Windows 10. Not to mention I got to re-program Ubuntu the way I had it before. From now on, I’m only using Windows for gaming, iTunes, and anything else I can’t do on Linux. Everything else is going to be through Ubuntu.

And last of all, no more doing stupid things that I know will go wrong five way ’till Sunday. I can’t believe that I’m supposed to be the tech guy of my house and I let all this happen? Still, I got my W2’s from when I worked at the Recycling Center and I’m waiting on my ones from Target. If possible, I will be getting another job before I get my tax return in. Either way, I’m going to be getting The Taken King the right way. I learned my lesson.

Now back to what I have here for you folks on Deviant Art:

Yup, that's the gist of it. The worst part is in the documents that I can't recover are stuff for both "Ballad of the Rabbitsbane" and "Medafighter for Hire". So I'm going to be further behind on those. Bright side is that I'm not giving up on them either. Still... first I need to get done fixing my operating systems before I can do any more writing.

::UPDATE::
I finally got finished with re-programming my computer late yesterday. I had a few errors with Windows and a few with Linux over a misstep on installing the later. Still, it's done. Both Windows 10 and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS are fully functional and programmed just the way I want. Yeah, I will admit that I was sad when everything went to crap. However, I think it's better now. Now that I have a third HDD in the computer, I'm able to just deposit stuff there instead of having to turn off the fast start feature in Windows 10 to access the HDD from Ubuntu when I write. All my documents and videos will just be there from now on. This way if I ever have another problem, I won't lose everything like that again. Not to mention that it saves on space with my hard drives that have the operating systems as well.

As I said before, now I'm just mainly going to use Linux for most of my stuff and Windows for the stuff that can't be done on Linux, such as iTunes for when I change the music on my iPod. Still, I'm glad that my re-programming nightmare is over.

I'm just here to be here.

Since I write and suck at drawing, I like to make the appearances of my OCs using character creation modes from some videogames. Yes, I play games using OCs from my works.

Now, for some truth. My real name's Nick, but I'm also known as Myth and/or Mario. I'm Sicilian, but everyone where I live thinks I'm really a Mexican. I like to write as mentioned above and I like videogames. My favorite fighting game serioes is the Soul series that started with Soul Blade and is currently up to Soul Calibur IV. I have and played all but Legends. I also love the Metal Gear series because it has the most interesting story line. I grew up on the Legend of Zelda games, which I'll always admit to. There's more, but I'll save that for a later date.
