No update today as I was recovering all my main PC's data from a backup most of the afternoon.

I just want to express the importance of keeping backups of all of your data for the project. I currently have a git repo on my NAS (and it will shortly be put online when I get a better internet connection). I usually push to this whenever I can. I was lucky since I only lost a couple of hours of work when my local machine's drive comepletely failed catastrophically while working on it.

I was able to recover this easily once I got my machine back up and running. This repo is also rsynced daily to another external drive, just in case my NAS decides to fail.

Keep backups!
