Woke up to find that Sarin had crashed overnight, around 230. Rebooted it, and everything seemed fine.

Until about 1830, when I couldn't log in anymore. Brought it upstairs, plugged it into the TV, and it couldn't finish booting. Hard drive failure.

Catastrophic hard drive failure. It can't even read the partition table anymore.

Now, I have regular backups running, but not all of them are on short schedules. Particularly complicated ones or particularly big ones are run, say, weekly.
My email archives were last backed up on the 16th. Fuck fuck fuck fuck.

So, anyway. Installed a new system to a spare drive (if one ill-suited to the case and 1/3 the size of the old one), in the hope that maybe I could copy data off, but no, it's still throwing errors just trying to acknowledge the old drive. Damnit.
