Bad things.. continued....

So.. the bad..... I was forced to reformat my C drive as windows would not even load this morning. Somehow during the reformat and install process, I also completely wiped out my main storage drive. I've lost everything....
Every texture I have ever done before and during the last year, gone.
Every sketch, snapshot, first life photography projects...
All of it is gone.

My paint programs, the disks were destroyed earlier this year. I am utterly screwed at this moment in time, and will have to try and recover from the ground up as far as this goes, I'm really not sure how long it will take, or where to start.

At the moment, my F drive needs attention.... I suppose downloading firefox and SL would be a good start.

Please bear with me while I try to regain sanity.

Bad things- part deux....

The problem appears to be intermittent. Chkdisk finally -finally- on its 20'ish attempt made it all the way through checking the big drive, this time it managed to -do- something and hopefully repaired the issue.

Speedfan is checking the integrity of the drive as I type this, we shall see.
Good energy, happy thoughts, crossed crossables are all appreciated. -smiles-

Gah, problems....

I don't even know if anyone looks at this thing or not. I'm having some major problems with my secondary hard drive. My system runs on two drives at the moment. The smaller one, C is a partitioned drive, its old, its been loyal. It replaced the first hard drive that blew as a result to what we think happened to everything else earlier this year when I was forced on hiatus.... which was a faulty power supply that was burning out everything.

At the moment, my F drive, the big one, the good one.. the "lets install everything on HERE so that if C fails....." .... is giving errors, locking up my system, causing me huge issues. If this drive is failing all hell is breaking loose for me and I wind up losing about 95% of the programs I use on a daily basis.
... Not to mention, all my base texture files, all of my snapshots, ..... absolutely everything is on this drive.

I dont know what this means at the moment, only that I wanted to give people a heads up that there are serious problems with my comp at the moment and I dont know what that will mean for releases etc. I'll post again when I know anything else -sighs-

Aiii, What a week!!!!

Talk about being stressgirl ^^. Over the last week I've moved a few things to the Le Cadre shop, although, not much really. 75 prims doesnt go far when you do trinkets -chuckles- , I've also moved out of Intemptesta Nox, as the region is undergoing major construction... and I've moved to a nice little island in the middle of nowhere.

Its quite a culture shock for me at the moment. The entire place was level and flat, but thankfully -not- all sand. I am truly not fond of beach, beach, beach. It's different in alot of ways from being in Intemp, brighter.... less haze, regular sun cycle. If you have been to Intemptesta... I dont need to even start on the change in ambience, you will know. I knew I was utterly spoiled on that count before.

I am still tweaking the build, but its coming along. Its quite a bit different from anything I've done before ... I have a habit in getting caught up in tiny details. ... I'm trying to take a step back from it at the moment so I can see it with fresh eyes, as I've been forbidden to trash the setup.

So! In the meantime, forgive my dust and my constant little changes here and there, but come and see!! :) I've updated the Slurl ---> But you can look me up inworld and the link is in the classifieds on my profile :)

I finally got around to posting lots of things here, and wouldnt you know it, Blogger ate my post. Oi.

So first up! I'm starting a contest.

The Prize? Free Wagons!!!!!

The Rules: Be a member of the Balderdash update group in SL. You can either search for Balderdash under groups, or you can run to the main store location (see SLurl to the right) and just tap the Group invitation sign next to the door. I'll get you an invite as soon as I see the request come up.

What you need to do:  Write up a notecard and drop it onto my mailbox outside the main store location.  Include your name, Tell me about what sort of wagons you would like to see, color schemes, themes, fabrics, whatever you can think of, toss it on in there. Do you want it furnished? Unfurnished? What would you use it for?

What happens then?:  If I find some ideas that grab me, and I use them, you get a free wagon on release!  Now, I'm not sure about how many entries I may get.... this said, if say... a bunch of you come up with the same ideas, I may have to simply release the wagon at a discounted price instead of handing out 20 free wagons....  We'll see what happens, it cant hurt to try, so get out there and start daydreaming!

Other news~!!!!

Balderdash- Bagatelle and Trinketry was one of seven winners in the first wave chosen for a free spot over at Le Cadre!!!!! I'm still in shock, I havent set up yet... but when I do, I'll let you know!!!! If you would like to see the location, see the SLurl--->

Halloween Edition- Primzilla Vardo Released this weekend!!! You can see it for sale over at Caledon Wellsian! (Slurl on your right)

Special Edition **Sparrow** Wagon price reduction!!!!
In celebration of my RL Rez Date (10/8) last week, and my upcoming Rez date (10/18) I have lowered the price of this very special wagon to 1000L. You can see it for sale over at Silent Sparrow!!! (Slurl... again... on the right -----> )

Changes to perms!   All wagons at Slex and Onrez are still transfer... for now.  All wagons currently on display (Sparrow and Primzilla) Are now copy only, to prevent you from losing them due to strange happenings in the grid.

Once things get back to normal and I get all the wagons back on display, I will offer them -both- ways, and those of you who have transfer only, will be able to turn them in for copy versions.
I cannot exchange copy versions for transfer versions.... for obvious reasons. I will post here and announce to the group when I am able to start working on this transition, but I wanted to give you all a heads up.
