    Very Very bad weekend

    My boot drive decided to die on me yesterday and I guess as it went down it scewed up my other drive. I just got windows back up. I was up very late last night trying to get it all back together. I ended having to format one of my partitions. I lost everything. My games, saved files, saved games everything. I better go now I got a lot left to reinstall!

    How it seems that soon everyone here has his/her HD in pieces? I'll go and upload my characters soon...

    I hope you will continue playing and stay here

    And that's why I keep backup on two other drives. Crashing harddrives can really ruin a perfect day, or week, or month, or...

    But you'll get going again, you can never quit :)

    Same thing happened to me a while back. My HD just crashed for no apparent reason (it was pretty old). I'd be more than happy to send along items.

    Thanks so much for the offers. With all my characters gone I'm kinda at a loss for what to create. I was thinking, right before the crash of making a MF character to get better equipment. What do you guys suggest?

    either hammerdin or fishymancer, depends on your own likes and dislikes really, both can do well untwinked and even better twinked.

    I feel your pain, early in January my computer crashed killing my 3 characters in nightmare (I had started playing again when 1.10 came out after a year off). Since it was an old computer used only for games and internet, we had no backups. oops. :(

    At any rate, I started a hammerdin on my own personal ladder. It did work well untwinked using stuff found on the way. (I ended up with mostly rares although I did find a skins of the vipermagi). The hammerdin worked well clearing rooms and open spaces, but I had a devil of the time trying to kill stuff hanging next to walls and with pillars/rocks/trees in the way. Of course, I am not that good behind the keyboard/mouse. :stoned:

    I now have a fishymancer in act4 normal, and I am enjoying him very much. It is a little different just amping monsters and watching skeletons kill, but I like it.


    Good luck,

    slowpoke

    Well, we know it's Durf's fault, but I think he may be aided by some folks in Redmond who make the worlds favourite buggy code. Plus, designed obsolescence for the hardware. It's a wonder our cyber world stays online as long as it does. :grrr:

    Gah that sucks =/ Sadly I have nothing to give you except this advice - never trust your PC they are EFIL incarnate =)

    I just lost a Uni/Set lovers HC Tourney char to a random *oh dear my mobo is overheating* reboot and over the years have lost countless gigs of data to hd crashes - my warmest hugs to you.

    Um, if you think you can blame Microsoft's incompetence on me you're sadly mistaken. If you've got a problem with an Apple you can feel free to blame it on me, of course, but frankly you Windows users bring those computing problems upon yourself. :p

    Sorry to hear the news, JohnnyBravo . . . Like people are saying, if you become a frequent visitor to the giveaway thread you should be able to piece together some nice gear in a hurry!

    That sucks. I'm glad it hasn't happened to me yet, as I haven't backed up my characters. I guess I should at least back up the 1.09 ones on floppy. I'm confident that the generous people of this forum will be glad to help you get back on your feet though.
