listening to a dead hd

My laptop died. hard drive and logic board gone. I knew she was on her last moments so I was ready. I think I will frame her. She was great. My camera is also in trouble and is at the Canon hospital. I get her back in a month.

I myself am toast in my digital camera course. sort of impossible to do without a camera, but I am determined. I am the studio assistant for the entire class.

I have a student discount so I bought a new computer. a macbook pro. I got her today. she's one hell of a fast woman.

Can't the college lend you a camera? Jealous of the new Mac - don't you just love student discounts : )

Corr, MacBook Pro! Still, it's hard to lose an old friend.

Yeah, even if your department doesn't have loaners, isn't there a faculty resource or something? I was in a Humanities dept but we could check out cameras & AV recording equipt from the uni for a day or two at a time.

Oh dear. What did you use to take this shot? A cameraphone?

It's good. I hope your camera gets repaired soon.

thank you for the HL.

no camera from school, and my friends will not part with theirs. I am just going to work like hell when repairs are done.

I could hear things were going downhill so I downloaded almost everything onto my external drive before my ibook gave me the death click. that's where the photo is from.

I was saving for this new fast woman. need her to play starcraft2.

I plan to fix my old girl, just need some time, tools, and maybe a clean room. ha!

I laptop is sick right now too. I think it might be terminal but it keeps coming back from the brink for no apparent reason & when I least expect it. I think it's doing it to mess with my head.....& it's working!

swamprose says:

EJ, please tell me you backed things up.

EJ says:

I had backed up, thankfully. I'm a bit obsessive that way, thank goodness.
It keeps life interesting though, not knowing when I switch on if it's going to work or if I'm going to get a scary blue error screen. Nobody can say I don't know how to live dangerously!
