The $5 disaster

The other day as I was trying to upload pictures for a post a message popped up that I had used my 1GB of free space. In order to continue to add pics to this little blog I would need to purchase more space. The cost of 20 more GB was a measly little $5.
Hmmm…I wonder if instead of paying the $5 I could just delete the photos from my google web album. After all, they are already on my blog. The.dumbest.thought.ever.
Turns out it doesn’t work like that. When I hit delete I wasn’t really erasing the pics from my web album but from Google’s server. And there is no undo button. 4 days and countless hours later of going back through every blog post and re-adding pictures I was done.
Lesson learned. Pay the $5.
