Good luck to you all.


Thanks. The surgery went well and she is now in recovery.

Ugh. You have my sympathies and condolences for the whole process. I had to watch my middle son go into surgery at 3. Maybe the hardest thing I've ever had to sit around and do nothing about. And recovery was no joke. How do you explain to a toddler why they hurt so much? Broke my heart. Luckily, everything went well in recovery and the condition was dealt with. I hope it goes so well for your daughter, your wife and you.

Almost two hours on the phone with customer service.

Thankfully a five year old can understand more easily than a three year old. That may be the one upside of it taking over two years for the doctors to take it seriously enough to get a diagnosis.

I tripped over my dog and I might have broken his leg. I can't feel a break, maybe it's just a sprain but he's not putting weight on it. I feel terrible about it. I'll have to call the vet in the morning. :(

So, called the vet and they told me to call the emergency clinic, called them and their surgeon is on vacation... They want me to call a different emergency clinic that over an hour away from me. I don't have time to drive there, wait for surgery, and drive back today. Also, no one but me and my family has actually seen my dog, we don't know for sure that it's even broken, but I keep getting referred. Ugh.

EDIT: my wife managed to get the day off from work to take him.

The raid controller ruined both drives.

How is that even a a thing!? :x

Now I am stuck with a half loaded loaner while my our IT guy puts my machine back together.

Then I get to reload it - again.
This is an all day job that I already did 3 times about 8 months ago.


How exactly did it ruin the drives? This is one of the reasons I use software raid(ZFS).


Both drives unreadable after it happened.

Checking with the hardware guy, I got some of the details wrong. It was Windows 10's built in raid, not a controller card. He also found a utility that could read the drives once they were attached to a usb enclosure. The good news is that I got what I needed off of one and he used the other to rebuild my machine. Now I am most of the way through reinstalling my software and I am no longer using the broken loaner machine. We are just going to set it up with regular backups and not fool with raid.


Ok, so the raid got screwed up but the drives themselves are fine. RAID 1?
