I’ve got the system back 95%, though I fear that I have to do a system restore–always a risky procedure–but after about 5 days of reconstruction, my email is back up. (I know, it shouldn’t be but a fraction of that, but the backups I was doing were damaged and I had to go back to parts of early December and parts of late November to assemble a working library.) I’m adding a RAID server to my life soon, which will provide yet another layer of safety. But this is really annoying.
Haven’t been able to poke at the doubled titles yet, though I’ve had a little progress in diagnosing them. That’s something anyway.
