well i already saved the baron.py and the codes file and parts of the log 
(which is original since june 2012 when the system went up)

i think we should try to save the log just so we can strip out data like 
how many times a day it was used each day until now and stuff...

but those are the only things i think we need.

i have to mention that i didn't notice this trouble until i was using this 
USB to serial adaptor which was messing up, so i was hoping that perhaps 
now that it's unplugged everything will go back to normal.  If so i 
apologize for the scare but unfortunately it seems much more likely a 
coincidence and the hard drive really is going bad.

really, in 2013, we still have hard drives going bad?  wtf?
