RIP HDD, FML GG
Transcribed from my twitter.

Well. My HDD has bad sectors and every hour it's powered, it gets worse.

I managed to copy-paste select important art files onto a USB stick at one point while the computer was at least (barely) functional, but most of my shit is kill. So I no longer have the original files for fanart, past comic pages, website production files/assets, past commissions and other personal shit like music/photos/Fallout New Vegas character build notes/etc.

However, my comic pages are online, the good fanart's already posted on my tumblr/twitter, and I can re-backup my website files. The .psd's for my comics are gone now, so I won't be able to edit those I guess, which may or may not be an issue in the future.

And the timing of it. Goddamn. The fact that this happened in the middle of my weekly backup (which was interrupted, therefore gone) is quite amazing, actually. The external hard drive I use for backup can only fit one backup image of my computer at a time, and so to make a new backup image, the old one has to get deleted to make room, then the new one gets made, you get it the idea. So no backup to work with.

I've calmed down now and I'm thankful that I copy-pasted the few important files that I did to get myself back up faster. Lessons learned, and now I'm gonna muscle my way forward. Gonna try a few more potential fixes, but will likely have to buy a new drive in a few days or so.

More gross goblin neanderthal angry sketches coming to my twitter in the mean time. Let's get the fuck back up.
