I’ve been hating computers today as I woke up to find a corrupted partition table on my linux hard drive. I couldn’t recover it so had to balst away the partition table and all data on the drive. Luckily, all my data is redudantly backed up on other drives and PCs so I didn’t lose anything of real consequence. The major things that come to mind are some code updated I’d done to this blog and a web stats project I’d been working on sporadically.
On the bright side of things, I now have recovery down to a 3 hour proces to a usable machine. I’ve also got GNOME running with anti-aliasing, something I couldn’t get for some reason through the usual apt-get dist-upgrade methods.
