Computer dies but unclebarky.com lives on

I wish this had been an April Fools' joke, but no such luck.

After five-and-a-half years of incessant keyboard pounding, the hard drive on my iMac apparently has died of cardiac arrest. I had saved all files on a backup hard drive, except for anything published since March 15th. Those posts had to be re-pasted and re-posted, but in the transition the original publication dates and the attached comments were lost. And some of the remaining comments under the relative handful of re-posted stories have nothing to do with the subject matter.

But any articles of import -- I've sacrified a few of the Local Nielsen ratings snapshots -- at least are back among the living. The links within the stories won't work, though. But believe me, this took a lot of work. And you should now be able to comment or re-comment if you'd like.

Future posts should be OK. Sorry for the inconvenience, and I'll probably need a new computer very soon. But the back-up hard drive seems to be working so far. So onward.

Since this is a new month, here's another reminder to make the amazon.com purchases you were going to make anyway by first clicking on any of the Amazon ads on unclebarky.com. A small percentage of whatever you spend will then be paid as a commission to your friendly content provider. Every little bit helps, and many thanks to those who have been regularly making their Amazon buys this way for months or in some cases, years.

Also, you can follow me on Twitter if you'd like at unclebarkycom.

Thanks again for your patronage, support, and in this case, your understanding.
Ed Bark
