Never Give Up

Ah God, why do I do these things to myself? 

My buddy Dave and I spent two days shooting what was if not a good version of the Extracting DNA video, then at least a passing one.  It had humor, it had education, it had great editing.

What happens?  I get ready to make a few changes to the video and upload it when my media player makes a horrible noise and freezes.  I forced it to shut down by holding the power button down for five seconds and when it comes back up I get the message that my computer wasn't closed correctly and I get the list of startup options.

I pick start windows normally and it sends me to the same page.  Every option sends me to the same page.   I decide to non destructively format my laptop and well,  I'm not given the option.  I had to reformat the entire hard drive.

Crap. I've lost everything.  Videos, other files, the whole shebangabang.  

But like Winston Churchill said... "Never give up.  Never, never, never, never give up."

I'm gonna put that damn video on the air if it kills me.
