Is it supposed to do that?

Well, this sucks. Around the middle of May, I had a rather complete hard drive failure. I won't innundate you with details, save that I plan on never buying anything from Icomshop ever again. Not my first bad experience with them or their parent shop right next door whose name I can't recall.

Needless to say, I've lost about a month's worth of personal files, plus a lot of my archived stuff. MP3s, various hard to find drivers/software/whatnots I've downloaded. All my personal files, I burned to CD at the beginning of April, but sadly, none of my archived files were.

It took a long time for me to even get to this point. I discovered that my apartment can get fairly quiet at night with no hard drive or fans whirring away in the inky blackness. Less so, now that the cafe patio outside my window is populated with idiots late into the night.

Nevertheless, as disheartening as it all was, I don't want to be stopped just because I lost a few drawings that looked marginall better than the ones I managed to get backed up.
