Sodditto. The external drive I use for my media looks like it's failing, and this is the second time in a year!

Or maybe it's the USB port? I've been having trouble with one of those. I'm not sure if that's better or worse, since it's a hardware port on the PC.

Split the difference: try a new USB cable.

Also, I am sick today. I couldn't sleep, and then, my God, the dreams I had. But it isn't the insomnia so much as the nausea that is keeping me home today. I may work from home in the afternoon if I can get this PC sorted.

Hard drives are such fickle wee beasties.

Right after I wrote that, I rebooted -- and the PC refused to boot. It remained in a vegetative state (not dead, but not responding, either) for the next 30 hours or so, despite some fiddling. I finally took it apart and reseated everything, and -- for now -- it's working again.

I'm double- and triple-backing everything up, though.

Yeah, it was not a fun afternoon. It's back working again, but I won't be surprised if it goes down again.

ETA: And thanks for the hug! I needed that!
