If you figure anything out let me know. I know its possible to take the disks out and put them in a different drive but that takes a clean room and it ain't cheap
The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

Sorry to hear that Tatonka/MSJ

I went through something similar awhile back and found my time on the playa led me to reevaluate
what I wanted to do and ultimately led to my finding my "calling" (for lack of a better term) at a late age. I've never been happier in terms of how I make a living.

I know it's hard now, but try to find the silver lining, it's not always evident but sometimes it pops out of nowhere. I try to tell myself I'm now open to more opportunities and keep a sharper eye out for them.

Thanks SicPup and Maryanimal,

I believe I will find whatever it is I'm supposed to on the playa. Hopefully, I will get to the temple and write My intentions.

I feel very fortunate to have met this group.

My fucking brother and his fucking wife just cut ties with the family. Threatened us with arrest if we came on his property(7 hours away). All because we found out he had not been doing his job and had to dock his pay to hire someone else to do it.

I cried in the office for the first time ever.

Thanks. My mom says he'll come around. She comforted me over the phone. I thought I was handling it fine until I started talking to her and then I broke down.

I KNOW it's not my fault. I KNOW that they're acting irrationally. But the property he was managing was my responsibility. He was my responsibility. And he took it out on her and my dad and... I wish he had just quit and said it's clear we can't work together.

Oh, fuck. Well I would hate to be responsible for somebody who expected me to keep my promise to pay him even if he broke his promise to work for it. But I know what it is to love a brother. So that's a real fucking mess. I'm fucking sorry. :(

Yep. Learned my fucking lesson here. I'd pay him to stay away from our business, frankly, after this. That said, I hope we can come back together as a family. I love him. I'm actually surprised by how badly I'm taking this. Reading the rain thread, I had the thought, "How great would it be to get stuck out there in mud forever and not have to come home to this." Not the work, but the freaking responsibility. The knowledge that decisions I make and will make in the future can wreck my family or cost people their jobs.

Everything just got heavier. And I had been feeling so good.

I hope they come around and become human again.
