Normally, on this feb monday morning, you'd be reading the latest friendship is tragic comic (your favourite derivative MLP comic, i hope ).
Yesterday i was working on the latest episode of Friendship is Tragic on my ubuntu 12.10 box. As is my custom, i was working and listening to music while saving periodically.
After finishing a particular element of the picture, i hit the familiar ctrl-s and began to wait as the program started to save. And that's when disaster struck! Suddenly, my entire computer froze - audio, video, everything! A lone note hung in the air, like a horrible prelude to what was to come. Even the save bar seemed to be stuck, mid-save.
But, fear not! It was not to last. After a short period of time, the entire computer shut down - seemingly for no reason at all.
I restarted my computer and navigated to my last working folder only to discover, shock horror, the file that i was in the middle of saving - the latest installment of Friendship is Tragic - was corrupted! 0 bytes, read the header!
Horrified, i attempted to salvage the work. I ran a program called photorec to recover deleted files on my harddrive. Alas, after several hours the only work i was able to salvage turned out to be from a few days ago. Some 6 hours of work that day had been erased. Gone! Deleted! Removed, never to be seen or heard from again!
There's a lesson in all of this, but i'm not sure what it is (probably something to do with how unstabled ubuntu 12.10 is).
Either way, however, there will not be an update to FiT this week.
and i apologize for the delay. But, we should return next week. Same pony time! Same pony dA page!
