Laptop Down!

My laptop has been acting strange for the past week or so. It was having trouble starting up and during builds it would suddenly stop and then when I would go to investigate why it failed, I'd get random "Segmentation faults" using simple things like "ls". When I looked at the logs it show disk errors at the "ATA" level. Yesterday was the "straw" that broke the camels back when my laptop refused to boot.

Luckily, I had a thumb drive with an installable version of UbuntuMate 14.04. I formatted everything and installed it. It seems to be OK but I lost everything. It's not really that big of deal though cause everything I need can be found on the web. I just hope my laptop remains stable...

It's going to take me awhile to get up and running with builds. Got to set up the build environment again and sync CM again. Lot's to do...

I just hope the it's not a hardware issue.

I have a build for the Huawei P9 lite on the device that I built an tested before the issues started and I'll try to get it uploaded soon...
