Bad News Bears!

Postby SamirA » 05 Jun 2014, 00:25

Hello everyone, I have some bad news. Mostly it should be bad for me and not you or the project. My hard drive has crashed. So I don't have access to any of my stuff nor will I be available for the foreseeable. I have no idea when I might have a replacement pc. Scamp I'll need you to look after things and keep things moving because I will not have easy access to a pc from which to communicate with all of you regularly. Once RyanS has his int complete start unlocking some more ints for the GC. Hopefully everything still runs smoothly during this time, but I obviously won't be able to make data updates for a while, so don't expect any new resources being put into the files even though they are posted on the forums. If somebody else wants to manage data during this time feel free. Just download the latest data from my dropbox. You will have to find another way to host the download though.

Bad news indeed SamirA, there are ways to recover the HDD though, even if it has crashed.

Prae, I think it's mostly the fact that he'll need a replacement PC/hard drive which he doesn't have.

I'll see what I can do, Samir. *Takes control of everything and overyone*

Yes true, but I just wanted him to tell not to throw the old HDD away, data can be recovered with right programme and a dock.

It is also a laptop, been using it for years. Not quite the same as grabbing a new drive for a desktop.

Haha Scamp, nice!

As I've said several times the past few days, hopefully I'll have some news about a job soon and I'll be able to plan for replacing the pc.

Very sorry about your situation. And also sorry about the long wait with my interior. I will definitely try to finish it in the upcoming week.

SamirA, do you have the original disk that came with the computer? If so, you should be able to get a new drive and stick in the dick to set everything up. If not, you may still be able to get a disk. Hard drives are not that expensive and I could paypal you the money if you want.

TDF: Which game is that(I assume its a game and not real life)
The Khan: If it was real life, we would know about it. And I dont think he means this Galaxy.
Tarius: Yes, I really lead a secret double life where I am a galactic overlord.

Uhhh... yeah it should be. Laptop drives use the same connections as a desktop.

It's literally a case of grabbing a new 2.5” Drive, connecting it, and installing an OS on it. Taking the underside of a laptop off isn't so hard.

This. Its not as simple to upgrade laptops, but putting a new drive in is easy.
