For those wondering why the sudden cessation in the story, I have this to report:
My hard drive fried. It works in tandem with a fusion drive, which makes things happen quicker, but it’s hard to retrieve data with this configuration. Both drives had to be sent to a specialist in California, who has to piece together the data from both drives.
It’s costly, and time consuming.
Hopefully I’ll be back blogging in a week or so, with my bank account lightened severely.
