Sorry guys - I've spent most of my evening getting my computer back to just a running state. I haven't had a chance to even think about a comic this evening. Oi.

Okay. Whew. The data recovery tool basically found EVERYTHING, file structure intact and all. I can breathe easy once more. And thus, the comic was posted. :)
A Cautionary Tale...

Just so you know, if you have the Windows Vista Beta installed, and you try to install XP on a SEPARATE FUCKING HARD DRIVE.... You're still in for trouble. Let's just say that's why there's no comic right now.
Oh, it's MADE. It's just currently literally lost in the aether of bytes that is currently running rampant on my hard drive thanks to a wonderful deed of scandisk. I realize now that my biggest mistake was not physically REMOVING my original hard drive before deciding to install XP. TO THE OTHER ONE. Becuase now, I don't get the choice to open up Vista anymore. Oh, and it gets better. Before I have a chance to tell it not to, Scandisk starts going to work "fixing" all these file system errors. Which is a fancy way of saying "making files unreadable". Which files, you ask? Why, the files on my desktop, of course! One of which happens to be a little folder called "REAL LIFE". Where EVERYTHING is stored. Every. Thing.
Sure, I've got a backup. I made it a MONTH ago. That's a month's comics, lost. Not to mention the christmas card artwork I made, source files for the website, etc....
I've got some data recovery running right now, and it looks like I might actually be able to save most, if not all of these files. Of course, it seems the one thing that can't be found is the NAME of these files. Which is handy, considering I have almost 1800 Illustrator files, previously sorted by date. I'm not even entirely sure it'll be able to save my directory structure or not... but we'll see.
All this so I could go back to XP. You know how they always say to run these beta things on a spare machine? LISTEN TO THEM.
