I feel sick

It's Tuesday, Microsoft Patch Day. My usual routine is to update my tablet first, just in case one of the patches causes it to brick.

If it's fine, then I update everything else: two computers running Win7 Pro and one running Windows Home Server 2003.

Unfortunately, the WHS ("deneb") halted in the middle of the update. I gave it half an hour, but the disk activity light showed no activity and it didn't respond any other way, so with great trepidation I power-cycled it.

And now it seems to be completely dead. Which is a great problem: that's where I store all my anime, plus a lot of other things.

I do have a backup of my anime, but I think it's last October.
