You know, sometimes things just don't go your way. The semester is over and I was planning on taking a week off to do absolutely nothing and regroup. Then work gets crazy busy and the system drive on my computer fails. Massively. For a guy who preaches (if preach is a strong enough word) about the virtues of backups, I don't seem to take my own advice very well. I hadn't created a backup since I switched to Win7 back in August. Oops. Fortunately most of the information that I created or changed was on one of the other hard drives in my rig. Unfortunately that doesn't include the comic. I've lost (the drive failure was catastrophic, the only data I could pull off of it using some fairly sophisticated software and about 10 hours time was information off of a virtual machine I had. Go figure) all of the raw comic data that I've created since August. While that's not a lot, it does include a significant amount of screenshots that I had taken.
The comics will return, and I will finish, even if it kills me. It's just going to be a little longer since I have to reinstall a bunch of software and do screen-grabs again.
Edit: While I'm at it, I will be upgrading Comic Press, too. So if the site is broken every one in a while, please bear with me.
