Image recovery?

HI Esteban, 
I don't know how deep your problem is. What has worked
for me is:

Open the changes file in a text editor. 

Search down to the start of my personal changes. 

Copy the remaining portion of the file into another

Then I hunt thru this changes fragment for the most
recent version of my desired-to-save work. 

Then I restart with a fresh or known checkpoint image
and reapply the desired-to-save changes.

It is a little messy to do it this way but it also
usually inspires thought and I make progress on my
design during the recoveries. 

I then get more virtuous about saving checkpoints
before running risky code.


Yours in service and curiosity, --Jerome Peace
