Over the last week, Ive been meaning to update my hindi collection of songs. Found an hour on Saturday afternoon I could use, and decided this was it.
So I login to coolgoose, combatting pop-ups with complete zeal, as I was discovering some good tunes and the downloads were doing amazing speeds. So, with all the excitement on hearing the songs as soon as they are d/l, and my little one even dancing to Himesh’s tunes [she’s a BIG fan, and shakes her hips ever so cutely!] I made a record d/l of 23 songs in 45 minutes.
yes, that’s a record, when you have to navigate the website’s numerous logins, pages and popups!
Job done, feeling quite smug.
Fast forward to last night. I decide to burn the CD, so I can listen on the way to work. I open the burner, and peep at the desktop window to start adding files, and I don’t see anything familiar. I see songs, but they are old ones. Puzzled I move into different directories [my system needs some real organizing!] and still no ‘beedi, ‘laakad’ ‘mitwa’ ‘farewell trance’ ‘aja aja’!
Now, am frantic, I call K1, who has been playing with the computer a whole lot, [and she’s giving me the ‘i donno what you talkin about’ look] more than I want her to. K2 on the other hand needs to be bribed to even touch the keyboard and so the story goes…
in any case, back to my mp3’s – long story short, after 30 minutes of opening and running all searches, I officially declared them missing.
I know K1 wanted a CD herself, so it wasnt her who messed around, DH couldn’t care less, another case of ‘I wouldn’t touch the home system with a 10 ft pole’! So,the fact still remains, that they have absolutely disappeared. No trace, no temp files, no nothing.
What the hell could have happened?!
