Apparently my computer's hard drive has slowly been failing, and on Monday night it took a nose dive. So since Monday I have been trying not-quite-successfully to rebuild my computer with a fresh hard drive. Oddly the new hard drive isn't working well either which makes us think it might be something even more serious with the computer. So Bob is off at the store buying yet another hard drive to see if that helps.
I haven't been able to get to old mail since Monday, and new mail is sort of sporadic. I'm trying to set things up on my laptop to be able to hobble along until this is all resolved.
I apologize if you have anything pending for me. I will work to get to it as soon as I can. For any emergencies you can always go to anyone in the management team. Their names and info are all in the Editor Assistance area. Together we'll figure out how to help.
I do have backups, and restore disks, so nothing is "lost". It's just a matter of getting a healthy system to put the data onto. This is a good reminder, though, for everyone to have two things:
1) A restore disk set, so you can put your operating system back up if you have a main drive failure.
2) A backup of your data, so you don't lose any photos and documents that you use on the system.
If you don't currently have these things, come on by the PC Advice forum and we'll lend a hand! They're fairly easy to do, and they can be a lifesaver when your computer has issues. We all know people whose computers die and they lose everything. A few minutes of time now can keep you safe. We're here to help!
I'll post more news once I make more progress with my system. I hope your world is a gentle, content one!
