Fortunate vs Unfortunate

My hard disk crashed, totally damaged. This is real sick.

Fortunately it is still under warranty. Unfortunately it takes too much time to be replaced.

Fortunately not more than a month to wait. Unfortunately I lost all my data.

Fortunately I got backup. Unfortunately the last one was about three months ago.

Fortunately I can get back all my PHP applications. Unfortunately not the latest one.

Fortunately I can get back my MySQL data, too. Unfortunately not the latest one, too.

Fortunately I can set back my work after the new one arrived. Unfortunately I didn't backup all my software as they eat lots of disk space.

OMG, I don't know what to do, where to start, how to complete. It's real hard.

What do you think when fortunate vs unfortunate. Which one wins?

I think there must be balancing between them

I think you are fortunate (blessed). You could have lost a leg or your housing. A hard drive is easily replaced.

I know how you feel. Something like that happened to me once. It really sucks, so I empathize with you. At least you have a backup. I say recover what you can, head to the Pirate Bay for your lost apps, (Its not illegal if you paid for them already) and use this as a chance for some "spring cleaning" of your hard drive. Oh, and I'm pretty sure you're never going to ignore your backups again.

Alex, thanks for your understanding. You're right, I won't take it for granted anymore.

It's a "wicked" spring cleaning though... :P

I think you are fortunate. You could have lost much more. Think positive! You are able to replace most of your data, and the rest you'll have to do again....but that's not so bad. You know how to do it.

That's what I meant. Thank God for giving me the fortunate behind the unfortunate.
