Minor Technical Difficulties

My main computer’s hard drive died yesterday. Most everything is backed up, including all but the last few days of my writing progress. (My photos, on the other hand, are in the hands of the local computer shop to see how much data they can salvage off the drive. I’m pretty hopeful they’ll be able to get most of it.)

In the meantime, I may be a bit sparse online.

Argh, sympathies. I had a hard drive crash with inadequate backup a few years ago. I got everything back, but it was an expen$ive lesson.

That's why I upload all my photos to Flickr. When my hard drive died last year, all my photos were safe there.

Ouch! Good luck, sir! This is why I try to have multiple backups, especially of my photos and music.
