My laptop hard drive suffered a catastrophic failure earlier this week. All of my data files, pictures, and music were lost. Luckily I had a backup of Quicken, so my financial records should be safe or at least easily reconstructed.
I've ordered a new hard drive that should get here next week and I'm buying a used desktop computer from a friend of mine tonight, so I should have redundant computing by the middle of next week, just in time for the beginning of Evidence class.
Losing the entire hard drive is kind of cool, once the initial loss is over. I get to start over from scratch, clean and fresh.
Besides, if I lived in Telezonia, I wouldn't have a computer at all.
