Well, the saga–and the drama–continues. The backup computer that I’ve been using for the last several weeks has died. I think it’s the power supply. I’m back on the other computer. The one that died before that. So far so good. Fingers–and everything else crossable–crossed that it stays that way. I could really use a turn in my luck right about now..
I spent pretty much all day yesterday getting this one back up and running. The next burning question is whether I can recover the last two weeks worth of work since my last back up. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the hard drive, so it should be doable. (I suspect it’s the power supply, actually.) The question is how hard or how expensive. I looked at some instructions online. I’d rather not do that myself, but I may not have a choice.
You can believe that one of the first things I did was download a free trial of an automatic backup service. This can’t go on.
I really wish I could just afford a new computer, but that’s not possible right now.
And now I have to decide. If there’s a chance I can recover those files, maybe I shouldn’t work on the things I’ve been doing for the last two weeks. Maybe I should work on something else until I get that settled. But what?
Maybe back to some revisions on MAGIC AND POWER. I’ve received a very good critique on that. Usually, I wait until all the critiques come back, but this isn’t exactly a usual situation. Or maybe I could start on the sequel to M&P.
