Max - Recovery - Week One

Max has been home since Sunday and is already starting to show signs of improvement. X-rays showed that nothing was broken but the vet tells us that he must have suffered a blunt force trauma - which might tie in with the graze he has on the right shoulder.

He is still massively weak on his right side but for the first time today is starting to move his damaged legs. This footage was taken this morning and left K and I in tears of joy. It appears that he still has some use of his damaged legs and we can only massively hope that this rate of recovery continues.

Max hit by car...

Originally uploaded by rakh1
K got home last night to find Max in distress. She rushed him to the vets where they confirmed he has likely been hit by a car. He's been admitted overnight for observation with x-rays tomorrow to determine the extent of the damage. Fingers crossed it is just bruising...

"Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook.  Cannot open the Outlook Window"

WHS Backup Error

I've been having some problems this week with my Home Server - every time I try to back up one of my machines it returns an error saying that a file is in use.  I tracked this back to server error logs complaining of an IO error.  Chkdsk returned nothing - but when trying to open the names file I got errors.  So, it seems like a corrupted DAT file - problem is that these particular files are not mirrored or backed up.  In the end I worked around it by removing the backup config for that machine, and then reinstalling the home connector software.  A bit of a worry though if an old backup corrupts - there is no way I can see to recover it.

Sonisphere - EXCELLENT!

Sonisphere was excellent - Iron Maiden were just brilliant and worth waiting all weekend for.  Rammstein were a complete surprise - what a wall of noise!  Had a great time every day and no injuries this year too despite venturing to the mosh pit, pit circles and even a spot of crowd surfing :)
