We interrupt this planned post...

To announce that my beloved Macbook...

My new Macbook...

My three-month-old Macbook...

Died today. The harddrive, spinning uselessly, went all retro on me, with the tap tap ba-bing! sound of a manual typewriter. There was fruitless re-booting, some prayers tossed to the saints of unbacked-up data, and some an abundance of cursing.

Happy Fucking New Year.

(as you were....)

Warranty?

And as for backups... I hate to say this, but working in the computer industry, everyone needs this to happen once (a massive crash coupled with significant loss) to nudge them into the habit of regular backups.

Hopefully everything we hear about Macs (I'm a Windows user myself) is true, and they resurrect your laptop with most data intact.

My G4 and I shudder for you.

Oh no! I hope they recover your data!

sandra said...

Oh no oh no. I hope you didn't loose it all. Fingers crossed.

Wishing you a happy new year just the same ....

I dropped mine and fackered it all up.
but it was my own fault.
and the banker fixed it.
and he had just backed up the hard drive days before.
