Two of my HP lap tops and a HP Laserjet printer were all sabotaged in one week, November 11 - 18, 2009, their recovery discs and the discs for my Adobe Master Collection software and upgrades costing $3,000 were deliberately scratched so I could not recover quickly, easily or inexpensively. Detailed description.
The "AMD" lap top I use for internet access and web support crashed Wednesday evening, November 11th after I downloaded a Wordpress update from a link on the administrative panel of my Happiness Blog - http://HappinessBlog.com
For security reasons, the "Burney" lap top I use for writing and program development never touches the internet. It crashed Tuesday, November 17th after I plugged it into my HP Laserjet printer. A good deal of technical sophistication is needed to sabotage a PC with a printer.
The Recovery Discs for both PCs were deliberately scratched. They were kept in plastic cases that were sealed in a plastic bag for protection and hidden in my van.
The Discs for my Adobe Master Collection and Upgrades costing $3,000 were also deliberately scratched. This is the software I use for my writing, book, web and video production. These discs were also hidden in my van.
I did not discover the software disc vandalism until I needed the discs to recover my systems.
Someone wants to keep me from bringing Happiness In Hard Times to market.
