The hard drive on this server (a $300 computer sitting on my desk at my apartment, with the drive in question being a 40GB Maxtor) died a horrible death on Friday. Due to the snow, I couldn’t get back into town to fix it until this evening. I’ve restored to a backup from a week ago, and I’m hoping to recover data from this Maxtor and merge the data with this backup to restore every post and story from the last week. The mechanics of doing so make my head spin, but I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. In other news, my last week’s e-mail is gone, too. Bummer.
