Katrina vanden Heuvel Introducing Markos Moulitsas

Nation editor Katrina vanden Heuvel presented Kos's award from the Drum Major Institute. Due to a computer glitch, most of my pictures of Markos are missing and presumed destroyed. I'll let you know if I manage to recover them.

and run it on your card. You will most probably be able to rescue at least some of these photos. I often have to use this when one of our photographers has a brain fart and then a panic attack.

Let me know if it works or not as there may be other options.

You mean he ordered you to destroy them, and you couldn't afford to cross him--right?

Since when is it matter if someone takes his picture in a public place? The goverment does it all the time!

No, I screwed up in some obscure way. I thought I'd successfully imported the better part of a 1 gig flash card onto my computer. About halfway through, the import stopped because I was running out of room on my startup disk. So, I made some more room on my hard disk and resumed the import.

As you'd expect, the second half of the card imported as Roll 2. All the thumbnails were visible in iPhoto (haven't switched to Lightroom yet, maybe this is a sign). Yet, somehow, there's no file associated with the thumbnails. I wiped my card after all the pictures showed up on the screen.

Somehow, everything from Roll 1 has disappeared except for the thumbnails. The Roll 1 folder is empty.

I tried PhotoExpert, but to no avail. Thanks for the tip, Fred.

Just to be clear, the fact that you wiped the card does not mean that the photographs are not still there. The card is kinda like a hard drive in that when you delete something all you do is make that space available to be overwritten. Whatever data you recorded is still there unless it has been overwritten by other data. If you run PhotoRescue on it you will probably find some images you may have forgotten about.

I ran the PhotoRescue program. It churned through its various recovery methods and told me that it had found 150 files. I was thrilled because that was approximately the number of shots I'd taken at the event. Unfortunately, the program hung up without revealing any files. I kept getting the error message saying "IMG_35355.jpg, file does not exist" and a button to click "OK". I kept clicking "OK" and the same message kept returning. I finally had to force quit because the program had obviously hung up. I'm going to try again.

I just wanna say for the record that KVH is hot.
