At least Kim can consistently use the network on her Windows machine now.
I have back-ups for most of the files on my seemingly dead machine, but not all the digital photos from the past few months. I'm keeping my DNA crossed.

In the meantime, look for more terse, link-laden entries and the occasional picture for which I have a back-up.
