Lamentation or Progression?

Post by PimpToad on Tue Dec 07, 2010 4:40 am

As some of you may know, I was embarking on a quest to encrypt my entire external hard drive. Now the smart thing to do would have been to backup every file in that external so that in case something bad happens...well hey you have a backup. Though alas...everything in hindsight is always greener and such a thing did not come to pass. So now every single piece of data in that external drive is gone...even the one single archive that I could and should have made multiple redundant copies of. Now all the other files in that drive were expendable and replaceable (though granted I forgot what I've even put in that drive since I've had it for years now), all except that single archive.

Now my question is whether such an occurrence is actually a good thing. This specific archive I'm mentioning (encrypted to hell and probably why it was unrecoverable in comparison to other archives of similar size) given the fact that I was supposed to have deleted this archive a long time ago. In fact the possession of this archive in question is a travesty to my word as a man and as a human being. The fact that I've probably lost it permanently for all eternity is good for my dignity and my very definition as a decent human being...but my desire to recover and have this archive repaired (even against all odds and convention) are pretty strong to the point where I'm considering dedicating quite a bit of time and effort into fixing it...hopeless or not.

Letting it go will provide me with a clear conscience, but my desire to keep it overrides such things. Should I consider such an 'unfortunate' event a blessing or a curse? The choice has been wrestled from my hands by circumstances I myself have put in place so I suppose it can be both?

I suppose you should try to quit now that it's gone. Go out and play some football or baseball or w/e you Americans do and enjoy some normal human activity. Must you once again cross over to the dark side I have eight words for ya



"out with the old; in with the new"

Still, funny how that's the ONLY important folder in the whole HD. Probs a sign from the big man himself?
