Is this for real !!!!
« le: 22 février 2013 à 09:07:45 »
I was googling "obuntu" in the hope of coming across a clever variation for melodie's spin.  In the process I fell across this thread on a site called Belfast Forum.  This has to be a joke, right??  Irish joke??  Seriously??

I really hope someone is pulling someone's leg here!!  Please, before I lose all faith in humankind !!!!
What can go wrong !!!

OK - it might be just me (although I do know that the French and the Irish were pretty close in the sixteenth century!) but let me break this down bit by bit.

First stanza - there's this bloke who threw away his computer -
Citer
I put an old pc with xp os on the tip following a plague of problems.
I neglected to take a copy of my note books that included a lot of work.

I replaced my pc with a refurbished desktop with Obuntu 11.4 os which is very differant from xp

Is there a clever way I can get my notes into Obuntu's version of a note book with out doing the work all over again?

Then there is a response to this -
Citer
Get the old one back from the tip?

To which our first bloke says -
Citer
It would be worth the effort if I could find it.

To which the final response is -
Citer
Okay well, it doesn't really matter which operating system you're using unfortunately.    Unless you've clouded the data or backed it up to some other source  it's gone to the same place as the tipped PC!


I seriously didn't think that data recovery could be expected to quite cover this!!

What can go wrong !!!

Now I get it. "tipped" means the machine was trashed... this is what I can now understand after I read again through your post. This is why I had not understood what the point was, while reading the first time. So, either the guy forgot to mention he backup the data, or he is lacking a piece of brains...  :-X
