What goes around eventually comes around, and I have been bitten by the technology bug, unfortunately. My #1 computer is down for the count- The mirrored RAID array in my Dell computer has failed, and my two redundant hard drives are inoperable. By going with a system that had two redundant hardrives, I was being extra cautious- or so I thought. In the end, it wasn't the hard drives that went bad, but the system that creates the two copies screwed up each hard drive. FORTUNATELY, I'm only going to loose a few months of photographs that weren't backed up. With a combination of online backup using Backblaze and manually backing up photographs on DVD, I consider myself very fortunate
Nevertheless, since my #1 computer is inoperable (right now I'm using an ancient Mac on permanent loan to me by a friend), my digital photography workflow will be seriously hampered, and the usual photography centric posts on this blog will come to a temporary pause. The blessing in disguise? Perhaps this is an opportunity to brush up on my nature writing.
