I come before you with my tail between my legs in complete humility looking for patience from the Late Night Cocoa audience.
On Monday morning the HD on my MacBook Pro crashed. Here I am now Tuesday evening and the only three things I have not been able to recover are
1. My Photos from my vacation to New York for my wifes 40th birthday last weekend
2. The last 3 months of backups from my accounts package
3. The latest Textmate edition of Late Night Cocoa (You knew it was coming).
This episode seems to have been really destined to be trouble what with all Robs problems with his apartment building catching fire before the recording and now this.
So why weren't these things backed up.
The photos because I had only just downloaded them from the camera (with the delete from camera option checked). The accounts because I had set it up wrong and the LNC episode , well I don't know, every other episode is there I just can find this one anywhere. I guess I need to move to a disk cloning system like superduper to try and avoid this.
I am trying to get another episode recorded but once again feel a bit stupid. The last few months have not gone well with problem after problem delaying things and I have to say I am beginning to loose heart.
So please don't shout at me I am trying my best and realize that I have become very unreliable. I will look to put procedures in place to try and avoid some of these problems in the future.
P.S If you have the slightest interest in following my restore wows then I will be posting that story on my personal blog at www.wafflewithmeaning.com
