This rather cryptic thread title is the Norwegian equivalent of the infamous Murphy's Law. This Law, being of a Universal Nature, applies to digital photography as well - of course. So, just 1 hour after returning my review sample of the D200 and having started to collect the image files onto the file server for my review, my Linux-based local mail and file server crashed. Totally. Kaput. Gone. I've been assessing the damages brought to bear from this incident and see that I might be able to consolidate at least some of the test images from alternate sources. Since these files were so early in the image workflow, they had not the bullet-proof backup support (presumably) valid for the finalised images. A pity and lots of work that needs to be redone, but it seems doable and I've "only" lost about one week's worth of post-processing. Then, having established that my test images had suffered a disasterous blow but should be recoverable to a great extent, I began looking into the mail system and found to my dismay that the local mail client not only had downloaded e-mail messages from the central server, it had also, diligently but unnoticed, deleted the messages as well. So in effect all e-mails for the last 6 months have disappeared into the big cybernetic void. Those included all requests for tutoring and field trips, plus the details for a pending sale of images to Oxford University Press (hopefully their Book Editor will inquiry for images not received as promised in a day or two). I think I remember her name, but not the e-mail address, maybe some of the nice British people around here could help me locate that person? At this stage of the affairs I did the only sensible thing, left the digital mess behind and went to help myself to a mint Nikon S3 "2000" rangefinder, still in its unopened box. Set me back a cool $ 5.000 but helped lift my spirits above Ground Zero level. Now is time to grab some beers and listen to high-volume psychodelic rock music. Eventually, tomorrow dawns, but that's another story.
