Hi all... I'm simply venting out loud this morning. My machine quit booting up last Sunday and I haven't been able to work on my music all week. I've got a tune that I'm 'this' close to being done rendering parts for. I was going to make some special FX hits/stuff on Sunday... get 'em rendered and be ready to start Sequencing on Monday, but my machine won't post properly = no Windows bootup/etc. I have to wait until this next Monday before a friend can take a look at it. He's thinking my Hard Drives might be in question. I hope not because I don't have that machine backed up. I have all of my finished Tracks backed up but 'nothing' else is backed up. A decade and about 100 GBs of samples/organizing/etc later and I still never backed my machine up. I know... if my Drives are dead I've got no one to blame by myself. At this point, I'm not looking for anything other than the sympanthy of my fellow Noise Makers. I tell you what though... if it turns out there's nothing wrong with my drives, then I'm definitely going to wisen up and get my stuff backed up. My buddy has been egging me on for years to get on the ball and get everything backed up but I didn't listen. So, here's to being organized I hope everyone has a great weekend... enjoy making your noises!!
