    Yup, its failing.

    One trick, if it fails completely before you back everything up, put it in the freezer for a few minutes (just keep it dry!) and try again. Sometimes it works, others it does not.
    "Every personís life is theirs by right. An individualís life can and must belong only to himself, not to any society or community, or he is then but a slave. No one can deny another person their right to their life, nor seize by force what is produced by someone else, because that is stealing their means to sustain their life. It is treason against mankind to hold a knife to a manís throat and dictate how he must live his life."
