I had hoped my first post on IH would be more lighthearted, maybe sharing the process of building my first startup, celebrating a milestone or asking for tips from the community.
Unfortunately my first post is about how a power outage resulted in a ssd dying, which happened to have all the code of the website I was making, that for some stupid reason I didn't backup anywhere else.
I have no one but myself to blame, and it hadn't even been 24 hours yet but I know the chances of me rebuilding this website again from scratch are slim to none, and that I won't be able to bring myself to work on something that to me feels like it had failed before it even started.
The sad thing is that just yesterday I had finished the core functions of the website all that was left was the user's profile and finishing the payment process. I was even aiming for an early march release.
I don't think I'll be able to work on anything for at least a couple of weeks now, at least I'll try to come to terms with how stupid I am and try to think of new ideas that i hopefully will remember to backup this time.
Sorry if this post made you sad or ruined your mood, I just felt like venting and had no place else to do that but here. again I'm sorry and thanks for reading.
