So last week I had the unfortunate event of losing my external drive. This drive held all my old artwork since 2004, along with a years worth of work I do in Second Life. This all had to happen with less than 2 weeks before the Fantasy Faire.
Thankfully I did have a good portion of my work uploaded into Second Life already. But, the sting of that amount of work hits hard. :/ Especially the loss of many things that were nostalgic to me.
A lot of my current uploads were also lost in the crash. Which also saddens me.
But at the same time I'm taking a step back and looking at it as a moment to take a fresh new start and see where things go from there.
My Fiance tried everything to recover the drive, with a recovery program. But by the next morning the drive was making sounds that were not normal. We could take it to a hard drive recovery place, but looking at the costs it could cost upwards of up to 1500 dollars, and we just don't have that type of money. Especially with our wedding coming up.
So I just have to sweep this disaster under the rug and keep going.
