Gumby is Dead

:..(

Gumby became unresponsive over lunch today...finally I rebooted, and it wouldn't start (wouldn't progress beyond the BIOS scan of IDE devices).

After much fiddling it made an effort to start, except it kept blue screening. INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVICE. Not a good sign. Trying F8 and various options...finally I reached the conclusion that it is dead.

Hopefully the other 120GB drive I have somewhere will work and the Retrospect that came with my Maxtor OneTouch II will work. Otherwise, it might be a major loss.

Though I do have the original 80GB drive still from the October 23rd upgrade. But, a lot has changed on my system since then.

So, I would prefer if I can recover from Retrospect....especially since it ran a backup this morning.

But, first to see if the very old recovery cd will get me to the point to where I can try doing the restore.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
