DAMN!!!

Weeks of work down the toilet!

I've had a (slight) electrical fire...
...taken out the Qube server, and my home server that had the backups on it - I suppose it serves me right that one was sitting on top of the other.

Weeks of work down the toilet, contributions gone... my own data gone.

:SIGH:

Time to survey the damage...
...my own server's toast as is the Qube, though amazingly it's mobo is still working - tough little b*stard! Sadly the logic board for the Qube's HDD is fried: That side of the HDD was screwed to the inside of the metal box - got a bit hot.

:SIGH:
(again)

I suppose I should be thankful I was in the house to smell the smoke so nothing else went up...
...I hope to God I can find a replacement logic board for the Qube's HDD & maybe resurrect the data. Does anybody know if the mechanical bits of an HDD can stand a bit of, um, roasting?

...find another Qube and start again.

:SIGH:
(yet again)

Hey! All my other stuff's fine!
