One of the hard drives in my primary computer died (its a Samsung for those that want to keep track of these things). I will have a couple fresh drives delivered tomorrow evening, and will get to rebuild my system this weekend.
I did not lose any pictures. However, there are a few sets of pictures that are just on my Buffalo station. This makes me a bit nervous, but its a redundant RAID, it should be safe enough until the main system is repaired.
