OMG I need to vent for a minute because I ALMOST royally blew it AGAIN!
TLDR: Good ending.
I’ve been blasting through Text 101 for, like, the 3rd time now…working on my new thing called “Work: The Game” or WTG for now…doing several lessons a day, taking more notes, writing stuff in a book, etc…
I’m trying to get the state machine ready to show to a friend in hopes that he might help me write the story while I add other things like buttons and point systems, etc…I have the basic Stages and loops, boilerplate endings and hubs, etc…the general framework. I need to build the branching states, but the spine is there.
I just finished the last lesson before bed and I looked at my list of stuff to do and read ‘Weekly HD Backups’ and thought to myself, “I’ll do that soon…”
Went to bed, couldn’t sleep. Figured I’d wake up and work on my game. Turn on my computer. Unity is taking FOREVER to load. Couldn’t get Unity to close the loading screen. Hard reset. Cannot locate Seagate 1TB…You see where this is going.
DDRescue GUI cannot find it.
CheckFileSystem says it’s corrupted.
RepairFileSystem ran and failed, but the HD mounted after RepairFileSystem was finished.
Promptly copied everything to the Toshiba 2TB && WD 4TB.
Narrowly avoided an aneurysm.
Jeez, I’ve even been waiting until the computer is fully powered down and unplugging the HDDs when I don’t need them instead of leaving them plugged in all the time.
There is no such thing as too careful!
Okay, I’m gonna go breathe through my nose now.
Thank you for being there. I just needed to write and get it out.
