Doctor StrangeCrash...or How I Learned to NOT Love IDE RAID

Well, my great idea of using an IDE RAID controller to mirror one of my servers blew up in my face today, when the primary harddrive failed the system slowly died. Sadly, the IDE RAID controller decided to stop mirroring drives months ago, so I'm left with only backups...and those were works in progress, so I don't have everything. *pouts* What is especially troubling...I can't get physical access to the server until Monday 'cause of the holiday weekend.

UPDATE: Everything but a few personal files have been restored...whew!
