Below is an email I just sent out to my high school classmates, asking for help. Thought I might as well share it here as well.

My computer hard drive has crashed. Updates that were in progress to this page - http://www.1962arsenaltechtitans.com/index_page2_20110804.htm - might have been lost. About 10 hrs of very intense updating.
I am trying to get someone in Carmel Indiana (I'm passing through the area and spending a few days visiting cousins, nephews, great-this and great-thats...) to fix the computer so I can save all the massive work I was doing on the class website. I am unable to local my disks for the Macromedia program Dreamweaver which I use to edit the website. All the travelling and downsizing, who knows what became of the disk. If I have to repeat all that work, I won't be doing it in html code alone and will need that program or one that works like it does, allowing me to edit while in a WYSIWYG view. If you have the Dreamweaver program and will allow me to load it to my new hard drive, I would be appreciative.
I am also hoping to find a copy of Photoshop 6 to load, I have ALL my other Adobe programs and disks, but where is the Photoshop disk? I have Photoshop Elements and it isn’t adequate to do the photo editing and retouching I do (which does bring in a little gas money). I don't care about anything else on that hard drive except the copy of the web page with all our photos and all the new updated information I was in the process of adding.
Also if anyone is in the Carmel area and you want to "do coffee" or visit a bit, let me know as soon as possible. I will be continuing on my Kayaking adventure as soon as I resolve the computer issue, one way or the other, and as soon as funds come in for more gas. I have kayaked 35 states now and need to be in AZ by Oct. for classes I will be taking this winter. I need to keep moving and want to kayak four or five more states on the way to AZ.
One thing I am doing to come up with income is doing sketches for people. Have a look.
These make great xmas gifts. If you want a sketch, just think, you can be part of making this Adventure become reality.
If you find this email offensive, let me know and I will remove your email address from any future notifications.

Also, I went by and found my mother’s old house today and then up the road and found her grave.
