The episode has been saved! We have to say a big thank you to Tom at Chandler Data Professionals for all the work to recover the dead hard drive. He was professional, thorough, and we definitely recommend him to anyone in need of drive recovery services.

On Dead Hard Drives and Backups

If you’ve been following our Twitter account, you know that my hard drive failed on the day we were supposed to release our new episode with Clintus McGintus.

I was unable to recover the drive through my own methods and have handed it off to a professional service. And, like a fool, I didn’t have a backup.

There’s no excuse for not having a backup and I apologize to you all for this… especially Clintus because we had a great conversation and were excited to share it.

Hope isn’t completely lost but data recovery is not a fast process. I should know what we can recover by early next week. Keep your fingers crossed with us!

The show will continue and we have some great guests lined up in the coming weeks. Should the worst happen with the drive, we will definitely invite Clintus back and the show will have some new intro/outro music.
