Ok, some time ago I made a user here and applied for that thing to be able to race with you guys, it went through, so I am allowed to race with you guys, however. Things happened and I did 1) not have time to race online 2) have a stable enough computer to try it once I got time But when I finally had time to play with my computer again I got it working and I produced a song I was inspired to do, then I had to leave the computer again for some days. Present day: I finally have time again to sit down with my newly acquired STCC: The Game and get online with RACE 07 again. So I switched on my computer and went to do stuff only to return and see it was not doing what it was supposed to do (boot up) Now, that frustrates me, so I sat down and after about an hour of messing about with it I got it to tell me what was wrong, my system disk is dead, the disk with Windows, all my games, game saves, pictures, photoshop projects, car skins and worst of them all, the last year of my musical career is not necessarily dead, but as inaccessible as it can possibly be. This is sad and even though I have confirmed that there are sectors on the drive that are ruined I'm hoping that, if not my games (which I can download again (Steam)) or even my game saves (I can play the games again), at least I'm hoping the drive is intact around my pictures and the most important stuff for me on my whole computer, my music, my songs, my own productions and the projects I'm still working on. --- I will be getting a new drive to install Windows again within a week or two and I will only then see if my music projects are still salvageable. Now I'm also sure that I'm not the only one with such a story. Do any of you have a story about a computer showing it's pure hate for you? Cause computers hold people's lives nowadays, but they don't work perfectly all the time, they sometimes fail and things, often important things, get lost.
