Complete Hard Drive Failure

The desktop with which I work and develop on Jaxboards has finally kicked the bucket. I've been having hard drive issues with it for about a month now, and when I tried to transfer my changes for calendar events, it finally stopped working altogether. Thankfully, I do have backups, but it will take some time for me to get the same development environment I had on windows on my mac, which is currently the only computer I have left to develop on.

The hard drive failed at the most inopportune time too - considering the Thai floods have caused hard drive prices to go through the roof. A replacement hard drive is looking to put me back about $200, where a few months ago it would've been $80 or $90.

Sorry for promising the events last night, and not having them by this morning. That's what happened.

Thankfully I was able to recover the files that I needed, I just have no way of testing them to make sure they'll work without testing them live at the moment, and I'm not about to do that, especially with this mod this involved.

I'm currently trying to find a harddrive at close to 2 month ago prices to replace it. I'll be working on copying files from the dead drive the rest of the evening.

Progress on this:

I've purchased a new 2 TB HD at a sub-optimal price, but I have to have it.

I'm currently copying everything I need over from the dead drive (it keeps dying so who knows what I can save)

I'm not going to promise a jaxboard update today, but I really do want to release one. It just depends on what happens. I swear calendar events are cursed or something.

I do keep a backup of all of the important stuff. I'm trying to transfer the not-so-important stuff now. :P

Rats. At least you had everything backed up, though - people usually don't at times like this!

Will we be holding Mass?
Course clear! You got a card.

Mass for the jaxboards offline development computer will be held Thursday at your family thanksgiving the communion will consist of whatever you choose to drink and the sacrament will be turkey meat. say a small benediction over the juice and turkey with stuffing before stuffing yourself. the mass will end when you fall asleep from that sleep chemical in the turkey.
Again please mutter a small prayer before nodding off.
