Out of the Blue

Welcome to Pink's News. Surely you are totally believing the rebranding of the site, as its plausibility is only exceeded by its originality. In completely unrelated news, today is April Fools' Day, meaning a vast majority of today's stories will be jokes, and some of them will even be funny. We'll probability misclassify a real story or two as jokes along the way, and if the past is any prologue, at least one farfetched story will turn out to be true. Can you even stand the wackiness?

Wacky Links: Thanks Ant and Mike Martinez and Acleacius.
Play: Dino Run: Marathon of Doom.
Elephant Quest.
Links: Top 100 April Fools Pranks and Gadgets.
The 13 Most Brutal Public Pranks of All Time.
Science: Robots dive deep underwater to solve airliner crash mystery.
Images: Amazing pictures: Zebra fights off lion attack. Thanks Digg.
Auction: Play for Japan: Akira Yamaoka Silent Hill Guitar.
DeLorean - Time Machine. Thanks Neutronbeam.
Follow-up: Missing cobra found alive in New York's Bronx Zoo. Thanks Roger.

Yeah well problem is I managed to install Win7 on the drive that was supposed to be my backup drive. Most of that stuff is apparently kaput; my MP3 collection is just gone (though still on my mp3 player), some videos... the biggest thing was I've kept an ISO collection of what I deemed classic games like Psychonauts and Symphony of the Night and stuff, but those didn't show up for recovery either x_x.

Looks like it's back to scratch!

Norton has worked wonders (surprisingly) in the past for me.

Might want to check OnTrack Data Recovery, based here in MN. I think they have some software that can help or some links for you.

As you know, your data isn't gone on the quick format, just the pointers to it. Good luck! Been there done that.

PHJF most of the drive manufacturers actually pretty good software e.g. seatools, western digital, maxblast (or whatever they're calling it now).

IIRC you can use it on a different brand drive so long as you have at least one of their drives in your system.

The only problem I have with April Fools is just that there are so many bad jokes as opposed to good ones. But hey, the good ones are really good. The 2 best still have to be the Burger King left handed whopper and Taco Bell buying the Liberty Bell.

I remember when internet April Fools gags started. They were funny then. We had to wait for an hour to upload and download a page...and we liked it! These kids these days with their instant connections, Z Sphere's and Paystation 8s! No respect for what we went through.
