And now for some positive news: the recovery service has been completed, and all of my important data has been successfully retrieved. It's now also backed up on 2 enterprise hard drives in a RAID 1 (mirrored) array with 1.2 million hours MTBF and backed up across 10 DVD-RWs just to err on the cautious side. Daru, Lana, Rena, Ciel, Oola, Max, and Kaiya all have their homes and clothes back.
Several people have been kind enough to make a donation towards RadiantCG's data recovery cost, so Lana (and I) wanted to come out and show our appreciation. Those with astute memories will notice that she's wearing the Luna.
This is a cropped version of the image that was sent out last night to all donors thus far thanking them for their contribution. Data recovery is quite expensive ($1500), so I'll be operating in fiscal conservation mode until its cost has been paid off. If you can, please think about donating.
The button will be taken down when the total cost of recovery has been paid off (donations + my own payments), and the full version of this image will no longer be sent out.
Thank you again to all of you have made a contribution!
So great your back! Now we get to see more Twilek wonderment!, glad to see you picked my favorite lana!

I made a little donation, sadly this month I'm a little short but nothing will hold me to do another donation next month ... Ya know, something here, somethere there, is still better than nothing no? *winks*
I don't know if you still send out the big version of the thanking picture but if you do, well my PayPall email address isn't the same of RadiantCG.

I am still in need, yes, as long as the donation button is up! Standard is whatever you can spare, there's no minimum to receive the image.
