AKA - Our entire apartment ended up under a foot of water while we were away visiting family due to our landlord's sump pump dying.
Soooooooooo, I'm going to be gone for a while while sorting through sunken personal effects and fried electronics.(Including both our desktop PCs and most of their data)
Just finished rinsing 5000 points of eldar under a tap a couple models at a time - now even more in love with Liquitex Varnish.
On a serious note - anyone have any options for restoring data from a hard drive with a destroyed circuit board but in theory platters that are fine? Cauuuuuse I haven't backed up in a few months and that contained most of my data, including this site's source.
Gotta look on the bright side of things and move forward though, because there's no turning back time. We're in surprisingly good spirits. Turtles are fine, most of our stuff survived by being high enough off the floor, and it could have been worse - it could have been a fire.
You can sure bet that once I'm up and running again I'll have an offsite backup plan in place, (I've slacked over the last while on backups, though TheWife pointed out that if my backup machine had been running, it'd be dead now too) GFIC's on more than just my turtle tank and will be building a water alarm hooked up to a dialer.
And now, relax in our hotel room... tomorrow, buy a new digital camera to replace the water logged one, and document the process of indexing all my fried and busted stuff. That, and ignore the very good time someone on the other side of the wall is currently having.
