A semester's end
This past semester has been a bit rough on me. In general my classes are going fine, but it has left me with very little time to actually do my own writing. Not to mention that my flash-drive has essentially reached the end of its lifespan. Twice now I have had issues with data corruption. In one instance I had all of the information on the drive convert to a RAW file type, thus making everything unreachable. I found a program that converted it back to a FAT file type, and thus recovered the majority of my information. Then just this last weekend everything in my Java folder seemed to randomly convert to an amalgamation of ASCII characters with no apparent order, and all of the files could not be opened. I tried using the Scan and Fix Drive option that windows provides, but that wasn't the best idea, since now the folder doesn't open at all. I found another program that scans the drive for any indication of order, and then I can get my old data back. I'll have to get as much of my school work out of the drive as I can, what I don't already have backed up. All in all I haven't had much time to write. I guess I could have spent the time I took writing this to work on something more worthwhile, but I feel that I owe the random blog wanderer and explanation for my general lack of posting here.
