Please Stand By
The server on the Bus has been infested with a tenacious virus leaving me unable to post.
I have spent many hours trying to exterminate this bug with no success. The only option remaining is to wipe the drives and start fresh. Unfortunately, many files important to me have been lost, including a large collection of music, all photographs, and all email received in the past two weeks.
Most of the music library on the Bus (over 500 GB) is stored on an external drive and backed up on the now tainted computer. I am fearful of attaching it to another computer to check on its status, as it may have been connected to the infected one at some time after the attack.
The thought of losing the collection is heartbreaking. Much of the collected works were drawn from my own compilation of 78prm and LP recordings. Although it would take years to complete, my personal collection can be retransferred. The potential loss of files transferred from records loaned to me by gracious collectors over the years is another matter.
My apologies to the loyal riders on the Bus and to the artists submitted works to be reviewed.
