I have now recovered much of the data that was lost when the hard drive in my main computer died. I now believe that the drive just died, unrelated to my poor programming ability. The drive has become extremely temperature sensitive. I have discovered that If I put the drive in the freezer for a while to get it real cold, then put it into the computer, it will work for about 15 minutes. I have been running back and forth between the freezer and the computer for a few days. I have recovered most of the data that was not backed up. Some of the pictures for the assembly manual were corrupt. I have recovered my e-mail, and will be answering the unanswered mail as soon as I reload all the software on the new drive. I have got a new laptop (which I am using at this moment) that contains an image of the web site so that the web site exists in at least two places. All of my software writing experiments are being moved back to the old computer just in case they had anything to do with the crash.
