And we gots fire! Although, it wasn’t as spectacular as previous years…
Saturday was kinda of a crappy day for me. The hard drive to my laptop died and with it went gigabytes of anime happiness. Although this time, I wasn’t caught completely out of the blue on this one. I pretty much knew that my laptop was gonna crap out at some point and I luckily had enough of foresight to setup the network hard drive and prepared disk images from the original university setup. Since the laptop soon needed a refresh, replacing the beat up old hard drive with a new one revived my 3yr old lappy. However it was still a pain in the ass to re-setup everything and I still lost fair bit amount of stuff that I won’t get back (several projects, some of the newer blog stuff and a few rare files).
The somewhat good thing that resulted from this mess is something I rarely do nowadays. I opened up and read a book as I waited until the re-imaging finished. Considering that I am a computer engineering graduate, it’s times like these where I realized how dependent I am on computer technology for all my anime, news and communication. Interestingly enough, at least the book was anime related. I finally opened up Susan J. Napier’s Anime: from Akira to Howl’s Moving Castle. I actually felt kinda bad that I haven’t read much at all since graduating from college (last May). Hopefully I can get back to more reading.
I hope to recover a few things related to the blog and be at regular speed soon.
