What rotten luck! :|
Oh, the joy. No less than 2 days since I fixed my computer, it appears to be broken again. Tonight we suffered not one, but two mini power cuts that seemingly knocked out most of the bottom of Tachbrook Road and the surrounding area that have had an adverse effect on my seemingly fragile Linux box.
As such, I'm now investigating the process required to rebuild my RAID array (configured for mirroring) so that I don't lose the data stored on these particular hard disks. Luckily the system drive seems to be intact (saving myself the headache of setting up Fedora again), but I can't afford to lose the data stored in the RAID array: this is all my work in the world, ever.
Looks like I will have to dig out the manual for the RAID controller and review the process thoroughly. This is not what I need right now.
