I’d like to say that it cratered, or that it broke, or that a virus killed it…but nope. I lost it. Gone, baby gone. All is not lost (err, whatever). I have backups on top of backups. But I did lose my digital rights management for songs I bought from Puretracks — and I lost approximately 500 words of a short story called Cold Dark (and the way writing goes, those are completely irreplaceable words — that will always seem like pure gold as I try to rewrite them).
