I just lost 45 minutes of podfic recording. Unedited, fortunately, or else it would be OMFGWWAAAAAAHHHHH! as opposed to the grumpy lowercase.

As I was saving the session in Audacity, it errored out because my HD was full. I cleared some space and saved again. It seemed fine. The save icon was greyed out; I took this as a positive sign. I just opened it up to edit, though - and it's blank. One long horizontal, blip-less line where the audio should be. I've looked in the temp folder, where there are eleven twelve second files and a six second file. The folder I thought it was saved to is empty (although it did save the name of the folder, fuck-you-very-much).

Is it gone forever, oh Audacity experts?

In other news, I have a date tomorrow night. It's my first date in ages, after a long string of losers put me off dates, and then a night of cringeworthily bad sex put me off men entirely. My mother asked me last weekend when I was going to start spawning to fulfil her latent grandmotherly desires. So, date.

Oh! I'm so sorry you lost all that time! *grr* *curses technology*

Have fun on your date, though. Perhaps you will not have cringeworthily bad sex. Maybe it will be fan-fucking-tastic!!! :D

*kicks software* I'm not an expert where audacity is concerned. I've got no idea if your data is lost forever...
But it still seems like you're making good time!

And btw, have fun tonight!
