Well today started like any other day coffee and muffins and office work. I decided to goto the the arena a bit early to do some clean up. As usual when I get in the booth I sequentially turn on my equipment as per usual. When I notice my submasters are all black. First time. So I shut the board down and chalk it up to faulty boot. Wrong!! The damn thing crashed. Checked the security footage to see if we lost power. Negative!! I say to myself no problem I got my handy backup right here. Slide the floppy in run through the process and last min Bad Disk. Sigh... I pull out the backup of the backup and same thing. At this point I'm table flip status as I got a show in an hour n a half. A No Show board and 2 backup disk that have failed me. Now I'm freaking out. I got one disk left that had my fixture profiles on it and hope to God I have some sort of show file on it. I pop it in and whala it worked. However it was from 2 years ago. Needless to say everyone make multiple backups of everything. With an hour left til doors open I had to update roughly 150 cues as the show cues have changed since. So now I am at a point where do I turn off the board and hope that it doesn't wipe or leave the board on til I get a chance to get up to Middleton to have it looked at as Tech support said bad caps or battery not knowing til it is cracked open. So that was my day today. Thank you to everyone for reading and letting me vent. Today was a stressful one but thankfully because of this board and my constant willingness to keep up on things allowed me to keep a level head even though I was a complete ball of stress inside.
