So I need the documentation for one of the third party packages that we're using with our application at work. Normally, this would not have been a problem, because when I installed the package, it installed the documentation along with it. (Sadly, that documentation is not available online.)Gretchen's missing camera
Of course, I haven't actually used the package for anything other than builds (for which we've got copies of the DLLs that I built with the installed package) in quite some time. In fact, I haven't used that package since I got the new computer and had to turn in the old one.
Well, maybe I backed up the documentation when I backed up the old machine. Let me find the backup hard drive.
I said, Let me find the backup hard drive.
Apparently not. In the process of cleaning off my desk, I found a great many other things:
A lot of pictures that Julie gave me that are now safely stored in a file folder in the drawer
My spare calculator
A missing stapler
A missing hole punch
Various fragmentary song lyrics for songs that were never finished
A bunch of USB cables
Other items too numerous to list. (Now how much would you pay?)
But no hard disk.
Eventually, it did turn up. In a place where it should have been, but under several things that had gotten piled on top of it in the cubby.
Sadly, I did not back up that documentation.
Time to find an installer...
