Twisted talk trashed by power outage and lack of backup (Arrrrgggghhhh!)


The silly UPS didn't catch the power outage, and somehow the file on disk got corrupted, so the presentation is just plain gone. This is *really* frustrating, I was working on the second-to-last slide already. Now I have to re-start from the beginning with less than 3 hours to complete it! Why doesn't OpenOffice automatically backup?

Computers suck.

    Seeing as I had to do one of those rare shutdowns on my system i figured i'd pull the drive that died on my last week finally. A sad task (besides not being able to find *any* of my screwdrivers for half an hour)... reminding one of the corruptability and seeming mortality of all data... including us. <br />

    If that is there is any data anywhere which is not corrupt to begin with. CRC, MD5 and SHA1 checks certainly lie.
