There will be a slight delay for the next post. Just had a hard drive crap out on me, and need to restore everything from backups. Of course, there were a few things that got lost, one of which was the post that I was working on.
I’ve been fortunate over the years not to have had many equipment failures, but when they happen, it’s usually pretty bad. This time, I didn’t lose much – probably 2 or 3 files at the most. It’s going to take some time to restore the system back to normal.
The best advice that I can give you is to get an USB hard drive and back up your data on a regular basis. That way, if something dies, your life won’t go with it (and that is especially true if you have lots of digital photos).
