It Started With a Hard Drive Failure, and Went Downhill from There

News from the NestOne of the inevitabilities of life is that your hard drive may eventually die. Yesterday evening, one of mine passed, quietly, and among friends.

Fortunately, I have backups and a couple of other computers to use. Unfortunately, I have to set them up to do all the stuff I do, while I wait for the new hard drive to get here.

So for the next few days, I’ll be pulling together backups, recovered files (thanks to the Ultimate Boot CD and a Knoppix live CD), and installing applications.

Just another reminder how important backups are. Things could have been much worse.
