case of the missing mp3’s ..

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?!

  1. yes. as a matter of fact, we do own one. I bought it myself, it’s just I don’t have any rights on it anymore. Sad state of affairs, but come Chrsitmas, am getting an ipod for myself. Ive just about had it!

  2. It must be the evil mutant killer monster snow goons… :)))
    Or maybe aliens….

    Or even ghosts.. Maybe Sir Walter Raleigh has acquired a taste for hindi music up there above the clouds.

  3. lol@emkmsg’s – that’s original enough to make me want to believe it. :-)

    It was quite strange. I am thinking the files had a short life – just like the Bond movies. The ones which disintegrate as soon as Bond is done with them? :D

I'd love to hear what you have to say, do write back!
