What Happens When a Drive Dies?

Specifically a drive on which one's Best Beloved has gathered all the live television that we have, well, gathered, over the past 10 years? 

The one that all our Dr. Who, from 1963 through last week, was gathered on? And all the Sarah Jane Adventures? All the Torchwood? All the Class? All of BB's beloved Gunsmoke? All of GoT? And more, much more?

Well, you sit in shock. And the shock expands as you remember more and more titles that were on Drive L. And then you feel bad for BB, because he had a whole bunch of other things that were very important to him on that drive, other than the live TV. 

You spend a brief second or so wondering if it's the Internet Gods getting back at your for gathering things in the first place. 

You spend more time wondering whether some of the titles, gathered back as far as 2006, might even be available in electronic fields where one gathers these things. 

You mourn the Third Doctor adventures you'd planned to watch this weekend, and the Game of Thrones episodes you'd planned to do the same for. 

And then you decide that you'll have a long term project ahead of you (and more realistically, BB, since he tends to want to be the gatherer.) You decide you'll look for options in which you can actually pay for things. Because you're not a total ass, even if your gathering habits might suggest that. 

And you remember it's just TV. It's TV you love, but it's TV.
