Sacrifices For the Art

GAACKKK! The computer shop called back and my hard drive has had a catastrophic failure. That's the hard drive with all my stories, notes for potential stories, and my unfinished, unsaved, and unprinted novel. They say they can recover My Documents by going through with a special machine and a partition by partition search but it will cost $200. Frustrating, to say the least, but I'm doing it while looking for another laptop.

I know the feeling - though not on such a catastrophic scale as you. My son just installed Vista and Office 2007 but in doing so lost my folder with my ongoing writing stuff in. He swore he'd backed all My Documents up but this one folder seems to have vanished into thin air. Now I have to trawl through e-mails and Writer's Cafe entries to find the pieces I was working on. C'est la vie, I suppose, but it's pretty damn frustrating.
