photoblog image My other half

My other half

In trying to be clever, I bought a 250GB hard disk to use as my photo store and hooked it up to my Linux computer which is my home file-server. This worked wonderfully for me until a couple of weeks ago... I am suddenly unable to access 95% of my photos 'cos of some inexplicable error messages on my linux box. Here is the situation, the disk is not formatted with NTFS or FAT. Instead, it's formatted with ext3+ which is high-performing but inaccessible to my windows system.

 I am so NOT looking forward to delving into the _nix command line to figure out the problem here... till I do, I thought I'd expose the person behind the person behind the lens! :)

Great portrait - something a bit different.

Abisola Fatokun: Thanks Ingrid. I was looking for something that would still give an air of 'mystery'...
Unusual and clever shot.

Sorry about your disk troubles, and I hope you are able to retrieve your files.
